The varsity girls soccer team lost in their pre-season game against the Presentation Panthers on Dec. 12 as the team adjusted to the new plays and formations. As the team struggled to get the ball to the Panthers’ half of the field, they lost with a score of 1-0.

As the first half began, Presentation kept the Lady Scots on their toes as they moved the ball, trying to work around the Scots’ defense line.

Coach Smith said, “We really need to work on making sure possession is tighter and we are not giving easy balls to the other team.”

As the Panthers kept the ball in their possession, they were able to work around the defense and scored a goal in the first half of the game.

The Lady Scots had few shots on goals as the team struggled to transition from defense to offense up the field.

Sophomore Mackenzie Webb said, “We haven’t really bonded that much as a new team, so it’s hard for people to play well with each other at the beginning of the season.”

As the second half began, Carlmont still struggled, but multiple key saves were made by defender senior Christina Tanti and the goalie senior Alyssa Fagel.

Webb said, “Tanti played really great today. She was super aggressive, and it definitely motivated everyone else to be aggressive in the end of the second half too.”

The game started off shaky, but as the play progressed, the girls started to move the ball around with greater possession and control. As the pre-season continues and practices take place, the team is determined to adjust and improve for the season that is soon to come.

As the girls start to communicate more and organize their lineup, Coach Smith said, “They are showing me potential, but there are things to work on for our season.”
