At Rectory School
Rectory – 7
Hyde – 1
The Hyde girls junior varsity soccer team began the game strong, midfielders Yoomi Ji ’13, Yichao Hu ’12, Yue Shen ’13, and Jenna Kowalski ’13 moved the ball well up the field to create opportunities for the team offensively. Good communication helped the team to their first goal of the season, an excellently placed shot by Yichao Hu ’12. Despite trailing 4-1 at the half, Hyde did not lose focus and continued to hustle throughout the game. Goalie Johanna Mather ’13 helped the team create space and make use of the whole field, distributing balls to teammates on both side lines. Additionally, Hanna Litman ’14 and Jing Yang ’13 both showed incredible persistence, winning many throw-ins and goal kicks. While the team was much improved from their first contest, Rectory scored three more times in the second half of play.
The solid effort in this game prepared them well for their next game against Marinapolis Preparatory School.
