The Lady Scots stormed up the field as they played with motivation in honor of the seniors under the pouring rain.

On Feb. 9 the Scots played a rough game against the Panthers. Though the weather conditions caused the field to be slippery, and the ball was hard to control the Scots kept the ball on the Panther’s half for the majority of the game. The Lady Scots had a series of shots on the goals, yet many of the balls were unable to make it into the back of the net.

The Scots stand ready for the pre-game ceremony.

During the first half, the ladies started the game off with high energy in hopes to make a win for their seniors. The Scots played hard, yet the game resulted in a 1-1 tie.

Freshman Samantha Phan ran up and down the sideline as she was able to score a goal against the Panthers. Fong was also able to create multiple other chances that either did not pass the goalie or deflected off the goal posts.

The Panthers were able to score on a free-kick just outside the penalty box.

Senior Paris Bartolo said, “It made me feel so happy that the team played so hard in honor of the seniors. Though we did not get a win on the field it was definitely a win in my eyes. The girls played so hard tonight and I couldn’t ask for a better Senior Night.”

During the second half, the Scots took advantage of the spaces in the Panthers defense and passed up the middle and sides creating a series of chances on the goal.

“We played well as a team tonight and I am glad our game turned out like this for Senior night. We kept the intensity up and I just wish our shots would have gone in the goal,” said junior Alexis Eliopoulos.

The Lady Scots were able to get their bodies behind the ball and control the play during the second half. Sophomore Kayla Gustafson ran up the sides creating a series of shots on goal and assisting chances for freshman Chiara Rigatuso.

Head Coach Jillian Quan said, “I think we played hard and our possession was there throughout the game. It was unfortunate but considering most of our varsity team is new our girls have really come together this season.”
