Girls varsity soccer looks to rebound against Leonardtown High School at home on October 20 after losing a heartbreaking game last night against Clarksburg High School 0-3, and losing 1-4 against Rockville High School on Tuesday.

“We came out expecting a blowout win,” sophomore goalie Megan Dakwa after the Rockville game. ”We came out really flat.”

“I think we just need to work on communication on the field, staying together as a team not like getting mad at each other,” Dakwa added after a devastating 0-6 loss to Magruder High School on October 5. “ I think [what we] did poorly on was closing down players so they got a lot of shots on us.”

Magruder has been undefeated this whole season and our Lady Wolverines held them at 0-2 at half. “Which was like a win, that was great,”  Dakwa added. “We entered the game with intensity, we came out wanting to win.”

“We improved on passing and playing together and holding Magruder off for a while,”  freshman right midfielder Nana Tutu said. “I’m really proud of them, they played really [well] against a really good team.” After keeping Magruder at 0-2 during the first half, Tutu said during the second half the team “kind of broke down.”

Being a freshman on the varsity team, Tutu said,”[It’s] a lot. I have to kind of balance school, and I’m not really used to everything in high school yet, but it’s a lot of fun too.”  

The Lady ‘Rines hope to snap a four game losing streak. Dakwa believes the team will do better at “keeping [our] heads up even if we get scored on [and] communication.”
