Girls soccer shuts out Lyman

With temperatures dropping into the 40s, girls soccer team headed out onto the field to take on Lyman in a conference matchup.

When the game began neither team maintained possession of the ball and struggled to find offense in the cold. After a while, the girls team stole the ball causing a breakaway leading to the first corner of the game. Soon after, midfielder Morgan Caudill crossed the ball to Madison Sophia who put the ball in the back of the net scoring the first goal of the game from the center of the box with 29:31 left in the first half.

After the first goal, the girls team stayed aggressive, pushing the ball down the field. Toward the end of the first half, Caudill once again brought the ball downfield taking a shot from outside the box, just missing the goal, keeping it 1-0 at halftime.

After the second half started, Hagerty continued to dominate the ball and created more opportunities. With 10:50 minutes into the second half, Sophia once again had a one on one with the goal keeper, but the goalie deflected the ball out of bounds. Lyman attempted a shot, but was well short, as the girls team shut them out.

“The game was tough to get a good rhythm going because it was very windy. We had some very good moments, but still had areas to work on,’ head coach Angie Densberg said.

At the end of the game, the girls team hung onto their 1-0 lead with five shots on goal and dominated possession. The team advances to 2-1 overall, their next home game is Dec. 4, against Oviedo.
