While most other sports were cancelled or postponed yesterday due to the weather, Bluejay varsity soccer faced off against DC Everest unabated. Unfortunately, the Bluejays lost with a final score of 8-0, putting them at 0-7 in the Valley Conference and 1-11 overall.
There was no shortage of effort on the Bluejays’ part, with Gabby Schlegel making eight saves that she had to lay out for and faced another minimum 10 shots on goal on top of the ones the found the net. The Bluejays had four shots on goal and another two that weren’t on goal and a corner kick.
“Last night was another cold and rainy night,” comments head coach Stephanie Nelson. “We lost 8-0, but again, I don’t feel that 8-0 should have been the score. The feel during the game was so much better than what it sounds. It actually could have gone way worse though; all these top teams in conference put up so many shots that some are bound to go in.
“We had some really nice passing plays again last night,” she adds. “And even the DCE coach said that we are doing some really great things, and only two of their goals came from their subs, who always put up a ton of shots trying to get their goals that they can’t get in other games.”
Bluejay varsity soccer will face off against Wausau East on Thursday at 5 p.m. at the MARC.
