After a 5-0 loss in the girls’ varsity soccer game, JV came back with a  2-0 win under the lights of Woodside High School.

The Scots played a long game in the rain as the team came together and defeated the Woodside Wildcats. In the first half of the game the team played the ball together well as their hard work earned them two goals in the second half.

Sophomore and Captain Cate Armstrong said, “I think we played the best we have ever played together. Altogether we were able to pull of a good win.”

While the girls played aggressively against the Wildcats, freshman Kaylee Leong went down due to a leg injury. Leong carried the ball up the line and was slide tackled by a Woodside player. Though Leong was injured, she played her hardest on the field and continued to cheer for the Scots.

Junior Paris Bartolo said, “Leong’s injury was a for sure a scare, but I’m glad we were able to come back and win the game despite her injury.”

Bartolo and Freshman Samantha Tolu both scored during the second half of the match. Bartolo scored on a corner kick; she took the corner and the Wildcats scored an own goal off of her kick. Motivated by the goal, Tolu took the ball up against three defenders as her speed earned her a breakaway, giving her a shot into the corner of the goal.

Freshman Logan Bonetti was a key player in goal, saving many chances made by Woodside offense.

Bartolo said, “She saved the team with good saves. She was strong in the second half.”

Sophomore Alexis Eliopoulous also showed her strengths on the field as she trapped the ball on multiple throw-ins and led the team by playing aggressively and encouraging her teammates on the field.

Coach Scott Pendleton said, “Eliopoulous played really well tonight she lead the team and played the ball nicely.”

Despite the rain and injuries, the Scots came together in the second half and played their hardest to defeat the Woodside Wildcats.
