Miners soccer riding 5-game win streak into Labor Day
Park City will look to take momentum to Murray on Tuesday, Sept. 5
The Park City Miners Women’s Soccer Team is riding high on a five-game win streak as Labor Day Weekend approaches. Following a 10-2, mercy rule victory over the Tooele Buffaloes Monday, the Miners will look to take their momentum on the road Tuesday Sept. 5 to Murray, where they’ll be doing battle with the 6-2 Spartans in the afternoon.
Head Coach Anthony DiCicco and his Miners will look to continue leaning on the shoulders of their star junior forward tandem, as well as the in-the-moment mindset that he’s helped cultivate within the program. Coach DiCicco mentioned it is this mindset among the players and coaching staff that allows them to take their mind off the streak and focus more on long-term goals, while also staying present.
“Lauren (Kindt) and Abby (Hanton) are such special players,” DiCicco said about his pair with 16 combined goals and 10 assists on the season. “We’re fortunate to have them producing the goals that they are.”
He said Kindt, Hanton and the rest of the girls’ seasonal goals are to seriously compete for regional and state titles. With the Miners currently sitting in first place in their region and second in their state division, these apparently lofty goals seem within their sights.
Despite their hot start to the regular season, which Coach DiCicco partially credited to the tough non-region schedule he crafted, he knows the importance of using this time off.
“Our emphasis this week will be staying true to our principles and our process, but also making it a fun week,” said he said, while touching upon the fortune of his team’s bye coinciding with the holiday weekend.
Unfortunately for Miners’ fans, Murray High School is a 40-minute trek into the valley, and the game kicks off at 3:30 in the afternoon. The Miners will be back at home, however, just days later, where they’ll take on the equally-surging Stansbury Stallions at Dozier Field for their senior night.

Parkite and Olympic gold medalist Chris Lillis topped the men’s division, and Canadian Olympic bronze medalist Marion Thénault did the same in the women’s.
