After losing in the Colonial League semi-finals to Northwestern, Girls’ Soccer played against Jim Thorpe on Thursday night at 5:30pm.
They lost as it was the quarter-finals for districts. Both the teams went out strong and kept the ball moving rapidly on both sides of the field. After regular time, the game remained 0-0. Two fifteen-minute halves were played. After that, the score was still 0-0. This means the teams had to go into penalty kicks. Could’ve guessed it, they tied again 4-4. At this point, it came to one on one penalty kicks. The Falcons sent out one player to shoot, and Jim Thorpe did the same. Jim Thorpe made theirs and the Falcons didn’t, so the Falcons lost 1-0.
Looking back on the season, the Lady Falcon’s finished in leagues with a record of 9-3-0. With the girls’ bond on and off the field, it really made this season memorable. Even with the losses, the girls made their opponents fight stronger than they ever had to. One of the toughest games was against Northwestern, early in the season. The girls knew that Northwestern was going to be a challenge, but they kept a steady mindset. They ended up losing the game only 2-1 after losing two players in the last seconds with yellow cards.
The Girls’ Soccer team has been extremely successful this 2019 season. Getting to the semi-final in leagues is an improvement from last year.
Unfortunately, that was the last game for the Lady Falcon’s. Being the last game, all the girls can say they played their hearts out and gave everything they could. They just can’t wait until next year to start it all over again.
