On Wednesday, the Girls Varsity Soccer team lost 2-1 to Stoneleigh Burnham, but the girls really brought their energy to the field. Chessie, who usually plays as a great defender, scored the team’s lone goal and had many great shots on net. Calla, who usually plays as a great striker, kept our defense strong and nearly unbreakable. Everyone did a fantastic job of being first to the ball, settling, and communicating throughout the entirety of the game. On Thursday, the girls played hard and tough, and showed drastic improvement since the last game against Four Rivers. In the 3-1 loss, they had several shots on goal from Ruby C, Chessie, Izzy, Elaina GB, and Calla. However, the keeper at Four Rivers had some outstanding saves. Our keeper, Gwen H., also had many great saves. In the last seconds of the match, Calla scored an unbelievable goal just in time for the ref to blow the whistle.
