H.S. GIRLS' SOCCER: Pioneers gets second crack at a state title



One player who has gotten very little attention — because she has been so rarely needed — has been junior goalkeeper Autumn Meyer.

The junior has played 1,680 minutes this season and is giving up just 0.81 goals per game. She has 56 saves and allowed only 17 goals and has 13 shutouts.

“She hasn’t tested that much,” Providence coach Dave Smith said. “But when she has been, she’s been tremendous.”

Meyer held Mishawaka Marian to just one goal in a 3-1 shootout victory in last year’s state championship match.

“Last year, we didn’t really know how good she was until we really needed her,” Smith said. “Which was at semi-state and state, and she came up with some enormous saves. She’s done the same thing this year.”
