Girls’ soccer faces disappointing loss

This Saturday, May 13, the girls soccer team took on Lewis-Palmer High School in their playoff game. Despite the team’s best attempts they fell short ending with a score of 3-0. This loss brings the girls soccer season to an end.

While the girls hoped to pull off the win in order to continue their run in the playoffs due to a slow first half could not pull off the win.

“We started out pretty slow in the first half and then had a really good second half, unfortunately we fell short and ended up losing because of our performance in the first half” said senior Katie Roskam.

The team’s second half did show the team’s determination and the hard work that they have out into this season. There were many good plays by LHS both leading up to the second half as well as in it.

“Lizzy Hernandez has a shot on goal at the very end of the first half and I think that kind of hot us into wanting to score, we came out second half and started creating a ton of chances” said Roskam.

One of these opportunities came in the form of a penalty kick for junior Sarah Gray.

“We also got a kick and it was an amazing shot to the left of the goal, but the keeper made an amazing diving save, shutting us out” said Roskam.

While the season ended up in a disappointing game for the team, overall the season went well for the team. The girls end the season with a 8-9 record.
