This was a playoff game.

“We actually talked about that at halftime,” Sun Valley Community School girls’ soccer coach Kelly Feldman said after the 3-2 victory over rival Wood River High School at Phil Homer Field on Sept. 17. “Ani (Anika Vandenburgh) came out with a bloody nose (in the first half), and they were like yelling at me to put Ani back on the field. As if I was just tormenting them.

“We have to be resilient. We have to be able to play without Ani. We’ve got to be able to play without Amanda (Dunn, who was later injured and did not return). The people who are subbing have to be able to step up into that. That was our halftime talk.”
