Varsity Girls Soccer (Worland Vs. Powell)

2161 words - 9 pages

What seemed to be a very long and difficult game, the Worland High School Varsity Girls come through to winning the game against Powell. Still remaining number one in the 3A division in the state of Wyoming, Worland has put up a fight regarding their loss against Lander last year at state soccer in Jackson, Wyoming. Worland’s very first game of the season this year in 2014 was against Jackson. The defending state champions were demolished by the Warriors, and Jackson also did not score a single goal. Majority of the girls soccer players this year are very young, only three seniors are on the team this year. As observed on April 4, 2014, the Warriors went against a stronger team in their division, Powell. Not only does Powell have bigger, stronger, and faster girls, but they also started worrying the Warrior crowd after they had put two shots into the goal of the goal keeper. With the score 2-2 it became more and more intense in the crowd. Only about 10 minutes were left in the game, and like last year at state Worland did not want to go into overtime because if there was no goal after overtime match it would lead into penalty kicks. As horrifying as it is to have that kind of pressure within about 6 minutes left of the game a goal was finally made for the Warriors! The score was now 3-2, and Powell was not happy. As the head coach from Powell was jumping up and down saying that they have this game motivated his girls. However, Worland put up a fight and as close as it was Worland finishes off the game with a win. An evaluation of the game was indeed a struggle to write on; however, Anna Hepp will give me information from her perspective of the game along with the another senior, Yesie Herrera.
Sitting by my side, I asked Anna Hepp the following question.
“How do you think your game today went?”
Anna then responded saying,
“We did excellent in the first half. We pushed the offense and defense back and created plays to score. The second half, we broke down. We got tired and our offense was nonexistent. It put pressure on the defense and me and eventually, due to the sun and a sprained ankle, the ball found its way in twice. But we somehow picked it up to score once more!”
Then I turned to ask Yesie the same question and her views about the game.
Yesie stated,
“It was going great at first; we came out with a lot of energy which is what we wanted to do. So the two early goals got us pumped! But then half time came and I think some of the girls got a little too excited and started to play down to Powell’s level. Then two goals were scored by Powell about as quick as we scored in the first half. Then we realized that we needed to step up our game. Then Hailey came out with our third goal which sort of picked us up again. Our offense had some beautiful shots and Anna had some great saves. There were good things happening all throughout the field. Then the rest of the game we focused more on defense trying to Powell down. Overall the game was decent but...
