On Tuesday, February 8, the Lady Warriors varsity soccer team triumphed 9-0 versus the Stony Point Tigers. The ladies not only displayed their fantastic offensive and defensive capabilities, but showed their goal hungry mentality as well, one that will prove significant when they face off their rival Vandegrift this Friday. Leading a game with several goals, players Skylar Zinnecker ‘23, Kate Cooper ‘24, and Aisi Concannon ‘22 impressed those spectating with two goals each. 

The Warriors began the first half with successful passing and control, making few mistakes in their efforts. They were clearly dominating the field, as they managed to keep the ball in their possession for the majority of the half. Unfortunately near the beginning of the game, high-scoring forward Zinnecker had to temporarily step off due to a hurt ankle, however she came back onto the field a few minutes later only to score the first goal of the game, an amazing shot to the top left corner of the goal. This first goal marked the beginning of a scoring frenzy that would continue on the rest of the game. The half ended 5-0, consisting of an amazing header goal from player Abby Burgett ‘23, in addition to the 2 goals from both Concannon and Zinnecker each.

Westwood continued their offensive successes into the second half, however in this half the ladies boasted their fantastic footwork, executing difficult moves they wouldn’t typically risk. They sent several through balls down the field to the forwards, resulting in many brilliant opportunities at goal. The game ended 9-0, consisting of some more goals from Sasha Brown ‘23, and Mia Bibbo ‘23, in addition to Cooper’s two goals.

“Overall we played very well together. It was great to incorporate everyone and see so many different people involved in the goals.” center back Paula Marza ‘23 said. 

The Lady Warriors play their next game versus their long-time rivals, the Vandegrift Viper’s, this coming Friday, February 11.
