Youthful Lady Blues enter 2022 soccer season
The Lady Blues opened their 2022 campaign Monday night by hosting Burkburnett. The team showed signs of promise as well as room for improvement in a 2-0 loss to the Lady Bulldogs.
This year will be one with growing pains for the Lady Blues. The team enters the season with eight freshman and two sophomores joining a group of five juniors and three seniors. One senior, Katie Coyac will be missing from the lineup until the end of the basketball season.
The first sixteen minutes looked promising for the Lady Blues. The team amassed four shots, including three shots on goal in that span. Senior Aliayah Saldivar emerged as a possible scoring threat for the Lady Blues with each of the four shots early in the match.
The match moved more into the defensive third of the Lady Blues as the half wore on. While the Lady Bulldogs were getting several shots off throughout the half, it wasn’t until their fifth shot, with 22 minutes remaining in the half that the Lady Bulldogs earned a shot on goal. That shot found the back of the net and put the Lady Bulldogs ahead 1-0.
