We’ve got another team capsule for you folks, this one coming from up in Dutchess County. Lourdes impressed a lot of people last season when they upset Edgemont as a 10 seed to advance to the sectional quarterfinals. It then took almost all 80 minutes for the eventual sectional champs, Bronxville, to squeak by the Warriors. Lucy Kohlhoff ended up being the hero, scoring a goal in the final ten minutes.
Loures looks to be even better this year as they return several key compenents from 2012. Below is coach Kara Sefcik’s capsule on the Warriors.
