It was a cold and dreary fall afternoon as the Hyde girls soccer team traveled to Seekonk, MA to face off against Wheeler. Wheeler was able to capitalize in the first 5 minutes scoring 2 unanswered goals as Hyde was slow to find their energy. Coming into the game the girls remembered the power of positivity and effort from their win on Saturday. Dairy Rojas ’19 set the tone by being an unstoppable force in our center midfield. Her speed and aggression helped move the ball into our offensive end. Daisy Humsey ’17 was able to capitalize on a great ball from Elsa Zhang ’17. Focusing on small touches Humsey dodged the last few defenders and placed the ball perfectly bottom corner. With the score 3-1 at the half the girls talked more about what was going well and what they might need to adjust. Making the adjustments the second half proved to be our best. Despite only wanting to go in because she was cold and could not find her jacket, Tori Luo ’18 dominated as an outside midfielder bringing the ball to offensive end. Humsey scored Hyde’s final goal on a beautiful kick just outside the box. Lizz Slivnick ’17 stepped up once again showing no fear and making countless saves to keep the half to a 1-1 score. The girls look forward to playing St. Andrews in our first home game this Saturday.
