Lady Mustangs Tackle Their Toughest Rivals on The Soccer Field. What’s Next?

 It’s the Mustangs’ first soccer season in two years, and they could not be more excited about finally getting back on the field with a completely new set of girls and a full season ahead.  

Morgan Kovacik, defensive senior on the team, had a lot to say about some tricks they have up their sleeve. “To really bring our team to the next level, is trust. We have to learn to trust the girl we are playing next to if we plan on getting anywhere. And we’ve been working on that through pasta parties and attending boys’ soccer games as a team.” “Technically speaking, we have some trouble getting the ball to the net. We have some new formations lined up and new positions to try out in order to create a more effective offense. Morgan is quite eager to continue to get to know and connect with her team to really build a family.  

Captain Maya Watts was asked how she felt finishing with a tie against their cross-town rival, Bel Air High school. “As a captain I was especially frustrated that we could not bring enough energy onto the field and put one into the back of the net after dominating the entire game. I feel like the whole team is upset we could not end with a win considering our position the entire game.” Maya has put that game past her and is only looking forward from here. 

Junior Cailin Hetrick provided some insight into the environment of the team. “We have really come together since the beginning of the season to now, I’ve seen a lot of improvement and growth in relationships. Overall, it’s a really positive and encouraging environment to be in.”  

The Mustangs have fortunately had zero quarantines due to COVID. Their current record is two wins, 3 losses, and two ties with the Harford Tech Cobras up next in their lineup.
