“We resolved to aim to keep the ball on our strong side, and to make sure we didn’t get split on their free hits,” Ganocy said. “We are definitely going to work on playing on our strong side and making sure to get back on defense.”
Against Thousand Oaks, the defense demonstrated its improvement, not giving up a single goal. Despite this, Fiene Oerlemans ’22 said that the team believes there is still room to improve.
“The game went well today, but we didn’t play our best.” Oerlemans said. “We tend to drop to the level of the other team. In our games we have been working on starting out strong and energized, therefore our motto: psycho cinco! But overall, in all of our games, we have been doing great, connecting our passes very well and playing as a team.”
On Monday, the Wolverines will go on the road to face Glendora High School. The Tartans are currently 2-3.
