THE BIG LAKE GIRLS soccer team ended its season with a 1-0 loss to Maranatha Academy Saturday in the second round of sections. “This wasn't a result we were looking for, however we knew it was going to be a tough game,” said Coach Mike Turner. “We knew they'd be hungry because we were one of three teams that beat them during season play. We would need to be playing at 100 percent. We played a great game - Kalee Kitzman was spectacular on defense, Kallie Nordberg was amazing in the midfield and Madisann Sayler had the best game of her high school career in goal. This game could have gone either way.”  Caitlin Engberg (8) has a shot deflected by the goalkeeper in a game against Columbia Heights, as Kalee Kitzman (20) trails the play.
