The team plays against Mercy at their second to last home game. They have been working hard on communication and taking shots at the goal. “We have improved a lot, we have a lot of young girls learning the intensity of varsity and as a team we have overcome conflicts and being able to understand each other.” Davenport said.

In the intense game against Meade County, the girls brought the score from 4-1 to 4-4 with less than ten minutes left in the second half.

Three days later the team played against a county rival, North Bullitt. The team had an impressive win of 5-0, with goals scored by Maddie Wheeler, Anna Tinelli, Beth Wheeler, Hailey Davenport, and Sophie Wilson.

The girls have been working hard to improve their skills but still have more progress to be seen. “I believe that we need to work on shots, we get carried up in dribbling around and miss our opportunities on the goal,” junior Hailey Davenport said.

The singular goal was scored by Savannah Mooney. “I was definitely nervous for the game, but all the hours we have put in preparing for this game our team is prepared,” senior Holly Higgs said.
