Cassidy Andres was very happy to break the Moose Jaw High School Soccer League scoring record Tuesday.
But this season she’s also happy just to be playing the game she loves.
The Grade 11 member of the Swift Current Ardens missed a large part of last season with concussions. Tuesday Andres scored three goals in the Ardens 11-0 win Tuesday over Central to break the record.
“I’m so happy,” said Andres. “My teammates have been really supportive — so have my family and friends — and they were really happy for me.”
The Ardens remained unbeaten Thursday after beating the Peacock Tornadoes 10-3. The game was 2-1 at half before the Ardens broke it open. Charlotte Williams-Greatorex scored twice and also spent some time in goal for the Tornadoes, while Toni Williams-Greatorex also scored for Peacock.
Andres broke the record when she scored 45 goals in her first 20 career games. That surpassed the mark of 44 goals Kristina Segall set from 2005-08 with Peacock.
Andres wasted no time on her march to the record. She scored 15 goals in Grade 9 and added 22 more in her Grade 10 season. She had eight goals in four games heading into Thursday’s game.
