Close loss under the lights for girls soccer

Though they haven’t yet seen a win, the Golden Horde girls soccer team is staying enthusiastic this season.

The team had two games last week, one in which the girls held the line nearly steady and one that was a bit more of a loss.

Wednesday was the girls’ lights-week game, where they took a 1-0 hit to Salem.

“The girls’ spirits were high; they were fun. Too bad we couldn’t post a win,” Coach Jane Havens said. Play was evenly matched for much of the first half, with the ball regularly switching back and forth between offensive lines.

A damp field made for slippery play, but the Horde tried earnestly to make a score and continually closed in on Salem’s goal.

With minutes to go before the half, though, Salem’s Lauren Waszk was able to break away from the pack and net one. That single goal was enough to seal Salem’s win, as the second half remained scoreless.

Havens said she was grateful to Athletic Director Steve Palmer for the program and the grounds crew for the pink stripes they laid out on the field.

“What a cool experience playing soccer under the lights,” she said.

On Tuesday, Oct. 1, the girls took a less evenly matched loss to Hoosick Falls at 10-0.

Though Granville goalkeeper Gabby Hilder was able to save 11 shots on goal, the Panthers were still able to net five in the first half and five more in the second.

Last week’s games left the Horde 0-8 in the league and 0-9 overall. The girls will host Greenwich tomorrow afternoon at 4:15 p.m.
