VIDALIA, Ga. (WTOC) - The Vidalia girl’s soccer team is preparing for Saturday’s state title game.
“One more practice. I told them on Monday, I said, ‘there’s only one other team in the state that’s practicing today, be happy to be out here," said Head Coach, William Harn, Vidalia Girls Soccer.
The other team practicing is St. Vincent’s. The two will fight it out for the GHSA Girls 2A State Title.
“Seeing these girls for the past four years, I’ve played them for the past four years, and while they are two-time defending state champions, we know we’re capable of beating them," said Logan Reid, Senior.
The two played twice. In February, Vidalia handed the Saints a 2-1 loss. In the Regional Championship, St. Vincent’s beat the Indians 6-3.
“To play with them for four years and just always like being second to them in region and all that, I feel like we’re ready to just go out there and give everything we’ve got," said Madison Taufmann, Senior.
The Indians have already had a season for the history books. The furthest any soccer team out of Vidalia High School has ever gone - boys or girls - was the Elite Eight. Now, they have a chance to bring the title home.
“This is my last opportunity to play for a state championship in my high school career, and going out with a win would mean the world to me."
In the final game of the 2019 season, they’re ready to leave it all on the field.
“We have a team slogan, ‘Faith in something bigger. Not about you, but about us. Not about your me, but our we,’ This team has played for us. They play for what we can accomplish at Vidalia. They’re not looking at what one person can do, or one individual, and so that’s what I’m proud of. They’ve stepped up and they’ve played as a team, and I think that’s what got us to this championship match.”
Vidalia and St. Vincent’s girls soccer teams will face-off Saturday on Mercer’s campus at 5 p.m.
WTOC will be there bringing you all the coverage both on air and online.
