Varsity girls soccer traveled to Jefferson to play the J-Hawks on April 22, but they lost 1-0.

Head Coach Simon Stevens said, “The girls did really well staying tough and showing Buc grit and determination. We had one sub to their eight. So it was a battle. We had some chances to score but just didn’t get one in.”

Defense and stamina played a big role in this game for the Bucs. With them only having one sub, they had to play even harder. Freshman Ruby Herrera had seven saves throughout the game.

Stevens also said, “Defensively, we stayed pretty organized and played a lot of tiki-taka through the middle. I’m proud of them for how well they stayed positive and organized and listened to coaching and direction. Sometimes the scoreboard is just a number and doesn’t reflect the game as a whole. This was one of those games.”

The Lady Bucs were going to play on April 20, against Hononegah, but they had a confirmed case of COVID. The girls are set to play on April 27 against the Rockford Auburn Knights.
