Girls soccer alive and kicking

The Marshfield High School girls soccer team has come off a school best season, beating St. Helens in a penalty shoot out which scored them a ticket to the playoffs–a first for anyone on that soccer team, even the coach.  But after losing six seniors and their coach, the pirates have entered a rebuilding year. 

“We are just focusing on having fun this year and rebuilding,” Captain Kaleigh England said.

The seniors of last season made a difference in their play by taking important positions like goalkeeper, midfielder, and forward. Their skill was embodied by the way they played in unison on the field. The seniors are always important in being supportive to all the players on the team. 

“The seniors were really good before the game,” England said. “They brought us together and now it’s different without them.”

Current spirits are low, with a record being 1-5, but there is always hope. The coach has changed a lot of things about the way they play starting with having two practices a day during the summer. With more time on the field they’ve been able to really focus on what they need to improve on. 

“The new coach has had us focusing on defense and improving our passes,” assistant coach Roman Munoz commented.

The girls soccer team is remaining optimistic. They have increased the amount of players on their team, and now have one of the largest MHS soccer teams in the last five years. More people are still joining the team and they hope to continue to grow the program. The team has also seen some increase in support thanks to the community. 

“We are happy with the size of our team and we hope to continue to grow the program,” senior Morgan Picatti added.
