The team went to Clarksburg on Monday, October 10 to take on the Coyotes but came short with a 4-1 loss. Despite being down for most of the game, they kept on fighting, pressuring the ball, and closing down their passing lanes.
“Emma [Buck] and Shaniya [Randolph] stepped up. Usually they don’t bring up the ball, but they took it up themselves and looked on the outsides.” said senior Paige Glenzer praising her teammates efforts. They hope to remain level headed and to not underestimate their opponent in the next game, and to play like it is their last game.
The Lady ‘Rines came out and played hard against the Rockville Rams at home on Thursday, October 6. They fought hard, scoring three goals, but the Rams came out on top with a score of 6-3. Senior Sam Whipp, freshmen Tatiana Ledon and Jada Thornton each scored one goal in the game, with the two freshmen scoring their first of the season. The ‘Rines put out a strong front but that wasn’t enough to stop the Rams from winning.
“I feel as if we didn’t work well as a team,” junior Heaven Atta said. “Some people got discouraged and had bad attitudes [and it] showed on the field.”
Senior Shaniya Randolph agreed. “It was a frustrating game,” Randolph added. “We started fouling a lot…because we were frustrated.”
