On the heels of several blowout victories, the Pella High girls soccer team is likely to see some real challenges today, as the Lady Dutch take part in a tournament at Nevada.  While Pella’s offense has looked strong thus far, head coach Sam Mate-Kodjo says the team has recently put a greater emphasis on controlling the ball in tight spaces to elevate their game to the next level.

The Pella High girls soccer team will start the day off against Ames – a 3A club – at 11:15 a.m., then play either Gilbert or Union in game two.  Should they advance to the finals, it’s possible the Lady Dutch will match-up against Nevada – a top ten Class 1A program.
