Good news for Byrd soccer

The Byrd girls soccer team clinched the Division I District 1 championship with Sunday's victory over Caddo Magnet in a staggeringly long matchup that took two overtimes and seven penalty kicks to decide.

But there is plenty of good news for the Jackets outside of their title. One is Megan Wilder.

The goalkeeper is just a sophomore, but she plays like someone much older and much more experienced. For instance, in nine district games, Wilder is unscored upon. Yes she got beat four times in the penalty kick portion of Sunday's game, but none of those count as goals.

Assuming she stays healthy, Byrd coach Lisa Levermann's last line of defense seems set for the upcoming playoffs and for the next two seasons.
