Fighting Phoenix JV Girls Soccer Over Kent’s Hill 1-0

10/22/14

 Hyde: 1

Kent’s Hill: 0

On October 22nd  Hyde Girls JV Soccer traveled to Kent’s Hill school on a cold raining day. The strong wind made it hard to make an accurate pass or throw for both team, however both team showed great spirits and sportsmanship under the difficult weather condition. During the first half, Hyde stayed in Kent’s Hill side of the field, making many attempts at a goal. Twenty minutes into the game, Gigi Chen’ 15 kicked a corner kick, Morgan Primak ’17received the ball inside of the 18 and took a strong shot. The ball hit a Kent’s Hill defense player’s knee and bounced into the net. Kent’s Hill wasn’t able to make any shots during the first half. During the 2nd half, the wind played to Kent’s Hill’s advantage. Hyde changed strategy to focus on defense. Defense players Jesse Fuller ’16, Gigi Chen ’15, Jennifer Borges ’16 and Becky Zeng ’15 built a strong wall keeping our field safe. Kent’s Hill was able to take 5 shots but they are all saved by goalie Anna Presson ’16. Hyde also made three shots. Thanks to varsity players Arianna Howard, Willow Beavis, Gigi Chen and Jess Fuller who are willing to help out JV in this game. Shot outs to the whole team for staying positive and fighting hard.

Our next game is at 1:30pm this Saturday October 25th against Gould at Hyde Gym Field. Come out and support these budding young athletes!
