After beating the Einstein Titans 2-0 on Monday, the ‘Rines fought hard against the Thomas Johnson Patriots on Wednesday, but sadly fell 0-6. The ‘Rines put up a great fight holding the Patriots to 0-0 in the first half by playing great defense. In the second half, the team was very tired, being unable to sub as often as the other team losing their momentum leading to the loss.  

“We played really well the first half and the end of the second half, but we let up in the middle of the game and [the Patriots] took advantage and crushed us,” senior Virginia Schlosser said.  “We need to work on being consistent the entire game.”
