Nation Ford High School
Northwestern High School
The Lady Trojans JV squad welcomed the Lady Falcons of Nation Ford into the friendly confines of Northwestern’s soccer pitch. From the opening whistle until the end, the Lady Falcons controlled the game and the tempo, keeping the Trojans at bay every time that the home team mounted an attack. The Falcons scored twice in the first half for a 2 nil lead, and again early in the second half, and they carried that 3 nil score until the end of the game.
While it would be easy to dismiss the Lady Trojans based on the score, the final tally did not and should not reflect on the effort or hard work that the young ladies put into the game. Every player got into the game and played several minutes, with everyone contributing to an honest effort as they worked on trying to improve as both individuals and as a team. Towards the end of the game the young Trojans squad had several chances in the attacking third but were unable to come up with anything solid to show for their effort.
