Still early in their season, girl’s soccer has managed to put up back-to-back wins, continuing to dominate the field in this week’s game against South. The game, which took place on Dec. 4th, ended with a score of 5-0 Redondo. The win added to the girl’s undefeated season, upping their record to 3-0. 

Even with their triumphant efforts on the field, it was no easy task to take on the South High Spartans. One of the girl’s team captains, senior midfielder Amanda Goldstein, emphasizes the efforts presented by their opponents.

“No games are easy, we have to treat all of our opponents with the same level of respect. South has a good team, a great goalie and some good players, so I think it was a good win for us.” Goldstein said.

The girls began the first half of the game with full force. Running up and down the field, interweaving the ball through their players, the girls managed to score 3 unanswered goals in the first half. 

Junior center midfielder and captain Shannon Davidson was a key player in Monday night’s game. She managed to score the first goal of the game and assist with the second. Davidson does however note how she feels there is still work to be done on behalf of the team’s collaboration on the field. 

“We still need some more practice to get more flow as a team, but I think it’s looking like we are gonna have a good season,” Davidson said. 

If this game is any indication of how their season will progress, the future’s looking bright. As the first half came to an end, the girls had managed to leave South trailing 3-0. During half-time, the team was able to regroup and set their plan for the incoming second half.  During their huddle, the team discussed how they could improve going into the second half according to Junior defender Reese Kennel.

“At half-time, we talked about being more aware and connecting more instead of being individual. I think that helped a lot because we started to connect and play more as a team” Kennel said. 

Their improving team chemistry followed them into the second half, and it was evident on the field. The girls were able to score two more goals which put them up 5-0. Their victory ensured them the coveted first in bay league for the time being. As the girls are able to better work together on and off the field, Kennel remarks how supportive her truly team is.

“Our captains are amazing and everyone is encouraging, lifting each other up”, Kennel said.
