Tuesday was the first game for the Lady Eagles soccer team. It was an exciting game to be a part of. The girls were really excited for the game, especially after our A – Team put on a spectacular pep-rally to get them ready to play.
The first half started off slowly. Oakley was able control the ball for most of the first half. Destiny S. did a great job in the goal. She stopped quite a few shots on goal and was very agressive in going after the ball. Oakley had the opportunity to score in the first half, but Destiny was able to shut them out.
We had the wind behind our backs in the second half. Alexa L. took advantage of it. Alexa scored our first two goals. The first goal came after Alexa came out of a big group of people with the ball. She turned and scored the first goal, hopefully of many, of the season. Her second goal was impressive because she took it out of the air with her left foot. Michaela B.
We allowed Oakley to score 2 quick goals. The score was tied 2 – 2 at that point.
Then Michaela B. scored a goal for us. Her goal bounced off another players hip and went right into the net.
With about 3 minutes left in the game Oakley scored another goal. The game ended in a 3 -3 tie. Our girls were realy happy about the way they played. They should be. They played hard in the cold weather. For many it was the first competetive soccer game that they ever played. We feel very good about our team as we move forward this season.
