In recent years at Mountain View, the girl’s sports programs have been the pride of Mountain View sports, especially the basketball, soccer, and volleyball teams.
This season, the girl’s soccer team is looking to continue that pride by making the playoffs and achieving their goal of appearing in state.
With the team currently sitting 5th in region, they stand a much better chance at making the playoffs this year than in years past.
Spanish Fork currently leads the region 12-0, then Salem Hills (8-1), Lehi (6-4), Orem (5-4) and Mountain View (4-6). Payson and Uintah round out the bottom two teams in the region with records of 1-10 and 0-11 respectively.
The Mountain View team has many playmakers on defense to protect the goal, as well as offensive players that shoot on goal constantly. With the playmakers they have this year, things will be looking good to get into state qualifying position.
The new region setup that began this year should help the Bruins in their chase for the playoffs. There are still the powerhouses of Salem Hills and Spanish Fork to contend with, but the Lady Bruins are still in great shape to make a run for the third or fourth spot. They are butting heads with Lehi, Orem and Payson in trying to lock down that playoff berth.
The Mountain View girls will ended their region home game season against crosstown rival Orem on Friday, Oct. 6th. Orem is listed as being No. 4 in the region prior to the game, with Mountain View just behind.
