On Tuesday, Jan. 31 the girls' varsity soccer team traveled to Coronado High School to compete in a district game. Tensions ran high due to previous games that both resulted in losses. The 80 minute game was fought hard, but the girls came out with a 1-2 loss against Coronado.
The first half of the game was back and forth as both defenses remained on their toes. There were no shots on goal in the first half for the Troopers.
Near the end of the first half, Coach Mike Cataldi made adjustments resulting in more aggressive offensive play. The game continued with Eastwood playing more defensively trying to look for an offside attack.
The second half proved to be frustrating for the Lady Troopers. They moved the ball well, but could not attack the goal. Near the end of the second half, with 5 minutes on the clock remaining, junior Monett Borrego finally scored a goal by challenging the goal keeper in a one-on-one.
Borrego said the game could've gone smoother had the team been more driven.
"Last night we could've played better with more motivation on the field and had we been playing with heart." Borrego said.
The next game for the girls will be at 5:30 P.M. on Friday, February 3rd, 2017.
