Soccer Scrimmage

Tonight the girls traveled to Columbia City for their annual soccer scrimmage.  It was a hot one, but the girls held up pretty well.  The Varsity played the first twenty-five minute session and did exceptionally well.  After the first three minutes Wawasee took control of the ball and never let up.   Meg scored the first goal of the season.  She started the play with a pass to Lee Ann whose shot on goal rebounded off the keeper.  Meg caught it with her left foot and was extremely proud of her first Varsity goal.  The second goal also gave Meg an assist as Alyssa scored her first Varsity goal as well.

The next session was played by the JV.  Columbia City did not have enough for a full JV team, so they mostly played Varsity players again.  The score was lopsided, but the JV gained much needed experience.  Our Varsity returned to the field in the third session not quite ready to play.  After sitting out for 30 minutes it was hard for them to regain focus.  They did start to come back together, but by then Columbia City had scored two goals of their own leaving the Varsity scored tied at 2-2.  The scrimmage ended with a 15 minute penalty kick session.

The girls showed a lot of promise tonight and they were all proud of their improvement from last season.  They definitely put in time in the off season and it showed.  They know they have work to do, especially on staying focused, but overall it was a great way to start the season.
