One local girls soccer team is on a mission. The FPD Girls came up just one win short of reaching their ultimate goal in 2017. But this time around, they want to make sure they don't miss out on their opportunity.

The Vikings went through 2018 at 21-0. Including 3 straight shutouts to start the postseason. The Vikings have been strong on defense and in goal all season with 18 shutouts and only giving up just 6 goals. The offense has been equally as strong averaging over 7 goals per game. They already avenged last year's loss to Wesleyan in the Elite 8. Now with their sights set on the semifinals, Calvary Day stands in the way on Tuesday. After last year's disappointment, they know they don't want to have that feeling again. "We felt like this year was kind of wide open. A lot of good quality teams. I knew we were going to be in the mix. It definitely gets you excited for practice when you know on game day you have a chance to win when you play the best you can" said head coach Joshua Trieste. "We're ready to take state and win. That's all we have our eyes on right now, that win for state" said senior Elizabeth Nelson. "There was a lot of hardwork we had to put in, even though we worked hard last season. We kind of had to step it up a notch this year. That was a good motivation for us to get to where we are now so we are excited for the rest of the season" said junior Jansyn Samples.

The game will be at Calvary Day on Tuesday at 6 pm.
