Injured Player Got Chance To Play in State Soccer Championship

Last Updated by Nate Wek on

St. Thomas More senior Ciara Duffy was injured during the Class A Girls State Soccer game. With her team up 10-1 on the Tea Area Titans, the coach subbed her into the game for just a few seconds. On crutches, but in uniform - Duffy was passed the ball and given the opportunity to touch the ball.

Not only was this a classy move by her fellow Cavalier teammates, but Tea Area letting her touch the ball was a pure example of sportsmanship and respect.

Along with playing soccer, Duffy is a stand out basketball player with St. Thomas More. She has committed to the University of South Dakota, and she'll begin her journey there next season.
