Northwestern High School
Fort Mill High School
The Northwestern Lady JV Trojans took the short trip across the river and played the Fort Mill JV Yellow Jackets at Bob Jones Stadium. The Yellow Jackets took advantage of their size, their speed, and their talent and outlasted the Lady Trojans. The young team that the Trojans brought along played extremely hard and fought to the bitter end, mounting an offensive game in the second half where they began to threaten and pester the Fort Mill defense and forcing their goalie into action.
Everyone on the Trojans got the opportunity to play, and everyone got several minutes worth of action. Many of the girls got moved into unfamiliar positions as the coaching staff worked on the basics and fundamentals to prepare the girls for the next few games and to allow the girls to see some success for when these two teams met again in a few weeks.
