Four game win streak
The Lady Flames soccer team gets the ball rolling winning four straight matches against fellow Gulf South Conference [GSC] teams.
After starting the season with only one win through six games and a season record of 1-3-2, the Lady Flames came charging back with a vengeance by winning their next four matches.
Lady Flames Head Coach Chris Hennessey said the team has focused on 'one game at a time' treating every game like a final.
'Our mindset has always been good,' Hennessey said. 'We had a lot of injuries at the start of the season, and now we seem to be getting people healthy again.'
Lady Flames Captain Kinsey Cichowitz said that none of the girls on the team ever gave up even through the rough patches.
"We just knew that we had to stop using excuses, and show people how good we really are.' Cichowitz said. 'We continued to fight for each other and the coaches ' It showed incredible heart and character.'
As good as the four game win streak is the season is far from over. The Lady Flames still have seven matches remaining before the postseason begins, all seven matches feature GSC opponents.
The Lady Flames 4-1 conference record has them tied for second place in the GSC with No. 15 North Alabama.
Each GSC member must finish their regular season as a top six team in the GSC in order to qualify for the Gulf South Conference Tournament. The winner of the tournament will move on to represent the GSC at regionals.
Sophomore Summer Lanter, a member of the Lady Flames, said the team will translate the success of the past four matches into long-term success by playing their style of play which focuses more on the team and less on individuals.
'We plan to keep working every day at practice, and trying to stay mentally tough and focused,' Lanter said. 'Our goals for now are to get better every day and take each game [one] at a time and try to win. Ultimately, we want to do the best we can do and win the conference tournament and go on from there.'
