On Tuesday, Feb. 14, the varsity girls’ soccer team played a close game against their rival team, the Round Rock Dragons, but ultimately lost 2-1. The game was evenly matched, with shots on goal from both teams and a near equal amount of ball possession.

Toward the end of the first half, Round Rock scored their first goal. The Warriors came back strong after halftime with strong passes. At the 30-minute mark, Kate Cooper ‘24 got cleated in the face. The clock stopped as trainers and coaches ran onto the field to help. That and Round Rock’s unsportsmanlike conduct with the ref and the Warriors led to a yellow card and penalty kick. Kate Wyrick ‘25 shot at the bottom right side of the goal and scored.

“That was a good moment,” Wyrick said. “It was kind of an uplifting boost for the whole team because we were down the whole half before.”

Ultimately, the Dragons broke the tie with eight minutes left in the game with a successful volley over the keeper and into the goal.

“Obviously we’re a little bit disappointed because they’re probably one of our toughest rivals, [but] I think we did good keeping it close,” Wyrick said.

The Warriors will play next Friday, Feb. 17, at 7:30 p.m. against Stony Point at the Warrior Bowl.
