Sophomore KellyAnn Chada accounted for four of the Lions’ six goals, including one in the opening minutes of the contest.

“It was crazy,” Chada said. “I definitely couldn’t have done it without my team. They had some great assists. I got the first one and that just started the game off on the right foot and then they just kept coming.”

“She is a goal-scoring machine” Cair Paravel coach Doug Woolery said of Chada. “She is one of those players who always seem to put themselves in the right spot.”

Zahra Friess and Clare Everhart added goals for the Lions while Katherine Keys tallied three assists.

“We’ve struggled with finishing this season,” Woolery said. “Tonight we had some great shots, some great finishes.

“We’ve been working on some things that have been eluding us all season, and today they happened. So many of those things came into play and we scored goals off of them. So, I’m really happy that those things are happening right at the right time.”

Cair Paravel learned after the game that the quarterfinal pairings allowed the Lions to avoid playing Bishop Miege, winners of every 4-1A state title since 2016. The Lions will instead face Baldwin next Tuesday at Bettis Family Sports Park.

“My girls will be more pumped up for that game than for any game we’ve played this year,” Woolery said.

Chada was in the stands when Cair Paravel reached the Final Four in 2022. She is excited to help the team pursue that goal as a sophomore.

“I’m super excited to try to get to state because this year’s seniors have had great teams all the way through, and they really want to win it. I want to help them get there,” Chada said.


Eudora (10-8-0)         0 0 — 0

Cair Paravel (13-4-1) 2 4 — 6

Cair Paravel — Goals: Chada 4, Friess, Everhart. Assists: Keys 3, E. Keller, Stafford.
