On Friday, October 5th, the Darien High School Girls Soccer team played a home game against Staples. Unfortunately they lost the game with a score of 2-0. Player Kaitlyn Popson explained, “the first half of the game our team was unorganized and let in both goals after half we really rallied, worked together, and controlled the ball”. Eliza Spain acted as an incredible goalie, putting in an immense amount of effort in defending the teams goal. Charlotte Sulger stood out, playing forward for the first time alongside fellow teammate Lizzy Barber. Katie Stevens, Joen Echelon, and Lexi Lyons held down an incredible defense.
The game may come off to a rough start, but the girls hard work, and team effort kicked in the second half. They are looking forward to next Friday's home game against St. Joe’s, and rallying together,once again, to hopefully submerge triumphant.
Player Emma Williams tries to get the ball away from opposing team.
