Girls' soccer sport shorts: Redcats slide past Eagles, 2-1

For a simple overview of scores and upcoming games, check the Winter sport box scores, 2011-12, for dates, opponents and times for all Eagle sports.

Be sure to visit the 2011-12 girls’ soccer schedule, home page, or check out FC is currently 2-4 in the West Sequoia League and 6-10-1 overall as of Jan. 26. The Eagles will host Parlier, Jan. 30 and will travel to play Riverdale, Feb. 3.

The Eagles faced the Fowler Redcats for their second game against them in the West Sequoia League, Jan. 26. Although FC fought to come back in the second half, the Redcats slipped past the Eagles, 2-1.

In the previous game versus Fowler, the Redcats dominated the Eagles 4-0. This time the Eagles were able to put one goal in, but made a few errors on the defense, which allowed Fowler to barely outscore FC.

After about 20 minutes into the game, the Redcats put one in the goal and maintained possession for the remainder of the first half. During half time, FC pumped their spirits up, hoping to take over the game in the second half.

Within the first 10 minutes of the second, Fowler scored another goal, leading the game 2-0, but FC struck back when junior captain Maddie Yee crossed the ball up field to freshman Rhyann Crain, who kicked the ball into the net, putting the game at 2-1.

According to freshman center midfielder Gabby Siqueiros, the team did well with moving the ball up the field, but lacked confidence in gaining possession of the ball.

?I think we did well with pushing the ball up and we were starting to talk more up front,? Siqueiros said. ?I think we need to work on being first to the ball, not watching it go past us, and not waiting for the ball to come to us. As a team we need to keep our confidence level up and give our absolute all at every game.?

Although the Eagles fought hard to take the game in the final minutes of the second, they were unable to put another goal in, ending the game with a close win for the Redcats, 2-1.

Sophomore forward Mikayla Messer agrees with fellow teammate Siqueiros in that the Eagles need to improve on being first to the ball, but commends the team for not giving up.

?I thought that we did very well the first ten minutes of the first half, but after that we sort of shut down,? Messer said. ?We were not first to the ball and that really effected the outcome of the game; we definitely need to work on passing the ball more accurately too. But we never gave up even though we weren?t first to the ball we got it back some how.?
