RAHS girls soccer continues to develop

Two years ago the Roseville Area High School girls soccer team won just two games. That number jumped to 10 last season.

Roseville returns 14 letterwinners, including six starters, from last yearís squad and is looking to continue to be a formidable opponent.

“We would like to develop players and students so they can enjoy playing, have fun and be competitive,” said fourth-year head coach Jose Canas. “We have a lot of new players on our roster and we are developing players so we can compete in our conference.”

That conference, the Suburban East, is usually strong and Roseville managed an upper-division finish last year. Roseville tied for fifth place.

This year’s conference favorites are Stillwater, defending champion White Bear Lake and Woodbury.

Among the returning players on this year’s team are tri-captains Kelsey Porter, Chloe Boehm and Rachel Berkas.

“They have to work together to get players to have fun and make a nice environment for every level in the high school program,” Canas said.

Roseville opened its season with a pair of games last week and went 1-1. The Raiders fell 1-0 to St. Paul Academy in the season opener on Thursday but bounced back to take down Centennial 2-1 in overtime on Saturday.

This week, Roseville hosts Spring Lake Park/St. Anthony Village on Tuesday at 6 p.m. and travels to St. Louis Park on Thursday at 5 p.m.

RAHS boys

Roseville’s boys soccer team played a pair of games last week and like the girls squad went 1-1. The Raiders dropped a 1-0 decision to Eastview on Thursday and rebounded to blank Centennial 1-0 on Saturday.

There is one game on the schedule this week. Roseville travels to St. Louis Park for a 7 p.m. game on Thursday.
