Pine Creek coach Kelley Stewart said nobody saw her team's 12-1 start happening

Not even her.

"This wasn't expected with all the youth we have. I didn't see this coming. But, you know, this team just refuses to lose," the 12th year coach said. "Credit our seniors too. They have had an influence on some of those younger players who've really stepped up for us."

For the Eagles, freshman Spencer Lindsey and sophomore Jayne Lydiatt have been the one-two punch. Lindsey averages a team-high 13.2 points, while Lydiatt, who verbally committed to play soccer at Oregon, averages 9.8 points and leads the team in assists (2.6) and steals (4).

Stewart said she hasn't seen the league so competitive in all her years. She said, like the boys' side, the fight for the 5A Metro League title will be one that lasts until the end.

"Anybody can beat anybody on any given night," said Stewart, whose team edged Palmer 46-45 in the league's first game of the season. "If you don't play your absolute best every time out, somebody is going to beat you."
