On Tuesday, January 9th, the girl’s soccer team had a home game against New Roads at El Campus. Although it was raining, the girl’s were hopeful that the rain wouldn’t impede them from playing their awaited game after two weeks without playing. Fortunately, the game was not cancelled and the girls were ready to battle. Even though some of the girls were nervous, had never played in the rain before, and were sick, they still put 110% of their effort in the game.

The first half was full of suspense as for the first 20 minutes, the teams were equal in performance. The turf was slippy as the water decreased the friction the ball usually has with the turf. Many girls slipped, but the cold water and the cold temperature didn’t stop them from battling out on the field. Even though the girls didn’t play games for a couple of weeks, they continued to play with the same energy they had from before winter break. The first half ended 3-0, New Roads having the advantage. Two of the goals were shot from inside the penalty box. The third goal was shot from the right side of the penalty box and was scored on the top left side of the goal.

The second half came with even more action. The girls had many opportunities to score; however, their shots and passes, were intercepted many times. Our defense remained strong for the rest of the time and the goalies did countless amounts of safes. During the second half , New Roads scored two more goals. However, the aviators never gave up, nor felt overwhelmed. Their aviator spirit and sportsmanship was revealed throughout the game; they remained sanguine even though they were in a disadvantage by 5 goals. Freshmen, Yarith B., proudly said that throughout the season she ” learned that [they don’t] give up and [they] have to plan good plays even if [they] are losing.” Overall, it was a stupendous team effort that ended in a defeat league-wise, but a victory practice-wise. Lilliana N., a senior, said the propitious game showed the girls’ improvement, leaving them with a feeling of success and accomplishment. She added that ” it’s the little things that count. The little passes that we do, the perfect passes leads to us becoming victorious.” The girls’ coaches, Coach Kircher and Coach Vazquez, are proud of the improvements they’ve seen throughout the season.
