Miners’ soccer team beats the heat

Christopher Kamrani, Of The Record staff

The temperature was 101 degrees. Park City High School girls’ soccer head coach Chip Cook called it "just absolutely brutal."

In the end, it was just that for Springville, a Class 4A team.

The Miners overcame a shaky first-half start to score three second-half goals en route to a 4-2 victory Thursday over the Red Devils.

"We were a little bit disorganized in the first half," Cook said. "But as (is) customary, we keep improving and keep going on."

Freshman Maggie Reigelsberger tallied two goals, while fellow freshman Gretchen Swenson added another. Senior Siena Palmacci also buried one in the back of the net.

"We’re just testing what works out right," Cook said. "We’re figuring it out. It’s really nice to win games like this."
