Hyde vs. Wheeler
On Wednesday, October 30th, in the last game of the season girls JV soccer hosted Wheeler School. The first half started with strong play on both sides of the field. The Hyde offense worked together to pass through the Wheeler defense. Hustle and fast-paced play by Joanna Ren ’16 and Jessica Shao ’14 helped to move the ball onto the offensive half of the field. After the first 15 minutes of the first half Hyde started to fall behind Wheeler due to poor decisions on the field and struggling to pull together. Trailing 0-5 at the half Hyde discussed challenges they were facing on the field and what they needed to work on together in the second half. Stellar goal tending by Lila Paulsen ’15 helped to back up the Hyde defense anchored by Naiwen Zhang ’14 and keep the second half of the game scoreless. The JV girls played their hardest in the final game of the season bolstered by their strong team chemistry built throughout the last two months of team work and skills growth.
