Girls Soccer Struggles in League Play

Girls soccer started out with a bang, but has been facing struggles in more recent games of the season. After winning the Palo Alto Winter Classic tournament in preseason, the team struggled to take away any wins during league play but is determined to qualify for CCS despite recent setbacks.

“We’ll do a lot better by the end of the season,” freshman Annie Gaffney said. “Obviously since we won the Paly tournament, we have the potential.”

The Eagles, currently 6-4-2 for CCS qualification, have lost three in a row to Monta Vista High School, Los Gatos High School and Mountain View High School (MVHS).

The MVHS away game, a 0-3 loss, has been a note for the team to reflect on and hopefully boost morale. The team looks to return the favor and beat the Spartans in a home game on Wednesday, February 1.

“The Mountain View game was a let-down but really a good thing overall,” junior Audrey Mays said. “I think it made the team realize that we needed to step up the level and start winning again.”
