JV Girls Soccer: Cold streak kicked away


After a slow start to the season, which brought nothing but two losses, the girls have become determined to bounce back in an effort to turn their season around.
As if an overtime loss to a difficult Richard Montgomery team in their first game wasn’t enough, soon to follow was a defeat to rival Churchill, which was arguably the most important game of the season. On Sep. 13 the girls took on the Bulldogs in an intense, neck-and-neck game. In the end, their one goal wasn’t enough as Churchill netted two to steal the win.
Now moving forward with two losses, the team realized it was time to step it up if they want any chance at a winning season. “Starting off as 0-2 is never fun, especially since one of the losses was to Churchill,” sophomore Mollie Greenberg said. “But now I think this will motivate us to try harder to win.”
And that’s exactly what happened. The girls’ next test came on Sep. 15, only two days after their loss to Churchill. The team traveled to Clarksburg where they got their first win of the season, scoring three goals and only conceding 1. Their next win wasn’t far away as they took on Gaithersburg on Sep. 20. The girls got their first shutout of the season at home where they beat their opponents 4-0.
Then only three days later on Sep. 23 they traveled all the way to Poolesville to look for their third consecutive win. The long trip was worth it in the end as the team ended up getting their second shutout in a row, besting Poolesville 2-0.
Now on a hot streak, the girls hoped to get their fourth consecutive win as they took on Seneca Valley on Sep. 27. Team morale is high, their record is positive and the path for a winning is clear. “I’m so proud that we were able to pull out three wins in a row to turn the season around. If we keep playing like this I have no doubt we can win our next game against Seneca Valley,” freshman Jessie Grinspoon said.
