Riding high off of three straight wins, the varsity girls’ soccer team headed to Vista Ridge on Friday, Jan. 17 with momentum on their side and showed out with a dominant performance. After a close first half, the Warriors poured it on in the second half to finish the match 4-0 with goals from forward Skylar Zinnecker ‘23 , and the midfield trio of Deepti Choudhury ‘21, Hailey Martinez ‘21, and Aislinn Concannon ‘22.

“[When I see the ball coming], I think about how I can beat the player I’m up against and then how I can find one of my teammates so that they can score a goal,” Choudhury said.

In the first half, the Warriors were able to control the ball and kept it in Vista Ridge territory. When an opportunity arose, they scored to take the lead 1-0.

“In the first half, it was a little bit rough,” Martinez said. “But in the second half, we really picked it up. In halftime we were able to adjust and that worked really well.”

In the second half, with the game still in reach, Vista Ridge attempted to go on the offensive for some time but the Warriors’ defense held strong and would not let up a goal. On the other side of the field, the Warriors relentlessly attacked the Rangers’ defense and put the game away with three more goals.

“I think we got a lot stronger in the second half when we were able to move the ball around a lot more and create more chances,” Martinez said.

The Warriors will look to continue their winning streak at home against Round Rock on Tuesday, Jan. 21.
