Manson vs. Entiat

manson_trojans_logoOn Saturday, October 5 Manson soccer team played their firs league game against Entiat. 

The lady Trojans went into the game with only nine players.  It didn't take long for things to get tougher for the Lady Trojans.  At the twenty minute Brenda Lopez re-injured her knee and the team was left with only eight players on the field. 

With three players down the Lady Trojans played though defense throughout the first half.  At the thirty two minute the Manson goalie made a good save but could not hold on to the ball, leaving the ball near the goal line, allowing an Entiat striker to get to the ball before the Manson defender and kicking the ball in for a goal.  The only mistake that the Lady Trojans made in the first half, Entiat made them pay by scoring the only goal of the half.  

In the second half it didn't get any easier for the Lady Trojans.  In the second half within the first twenty minutes Entiat score two more goals.  The Lady Trojans did not give up as they had a few shots stopped by the Entiat defenders.  Two more players got injured so the team was left with only six players and that's when the referee ended the game with only eight minutes left.
