On Saturday August 13th, the Lady Hot Dog Soccer team traveled to Lafayette Central Catholic to participate in their preseason scrimmage. Members of both teams traveled to get some game experience in before the season officially kicks off on Tuesday.
There were several positives from the action on Saturday. Most included the play of several new comers to the program getting an extended chance due to other players being unavailable. There were also positives from returning players testing out a new role or position.
However, even though there were several positives the coaching staff & the team both realize there is a long way to go before we are competing at our highest level. That there are several areas that will need to be focused on in the upcoming practices; highlighted by communication, spacing and offense-to-defense transitions.
As mentioned there was some fantastic play by both returnees and new comers. Highlighted by the 2 goals Sophomore new comer Rylee Seibert and an assist each by Junior Yadira Lopez & Freshman Janet Martinez.
The season officially kicks off on Tuesday at Logansport. The Lady Hot Dogs will be lead onto the field by their captains Flor Lopez, Alejandra Cruz, & Jessica Munoz for a 5:30 start time.
