Crookston lost to East Grand Forks in the quarterfinals of the section tournament.

    Crookston headed into East Grand Forks for the first round of the Section 8A Tournament. Their opponent: the undefeated Green Wave.    

    In the final game of the Pirates season, East Side’s offense was clicking on all cylinders as they scored 13 goals to win 13-0.    

    The Green Wave owned a 7-0 lead at half scattering goals past goalkeeper, Katelyn Wagner who finished the day with 17 saves.

    Head Coach Sarah Reese said the team felt a sense of pride as the season concluded.   

    “While the score wasn’t fabulous and we would have certainly preferred to win, the girls showed up, played hard and at the end of the day, left the field with a smile and a strong sense of accomplishment for the season,” Reese said. “Teaching and sharing our love for soccer with new and returning players resulted in lots of life lessons.”
