The Blaine varsity girls soccer team is headed for the playoffs after finishing its regular season on October 28 with a 3–1 loss to Burlington-Edison at home.
The Borderites’ regular season record is 7–8–1 overall and 5–7–1 in conference games.
Burlington-Edison finished with an 11–1–1 record in conference games. After getting behind by two goals in the first half, Blaine settled in and created some scoring opportunities in the second half.
“The second half was even,” said head coach Gio Quesada. “But you can’t play just one half and win a game.”
Sophomore midfielder Gabriela Blanco scored the Borderites’ goal in the second half on a cross from the left side.
Blaine will play Lakewood (6–4–3) in a must-win first-round playoff game at 7 p.m. on Thursday, October 31, at Lakewood High School in Arlington. Lakewood beat Blaine 3–0 in a regular season game on October 3.
