Girls varsity soccer suffers first loss of the season to Gull Lake 3-0

After a great offensive showcase against the Grand Rapids Christian Eagles a couple of weeks ago, the girls varsity soccer team suffered their first loss of the season at the hands of the Gull Lake Blue Devils, losing 3-0. Despite a tough loss, senior goalie Alexa Lauer made some great saves throughout the game along with the defense having some nice stands in the first half. The Lady Rangers now shift their attention to next Monday, where they take on archrival Forest Hills Northern Huskies.

The defense got off to a slow start, as the Blue Devils put in 2 goals in the first 15 minutes of play. Offensively, it was tough to get anything going, with Gull Lake putting in a stifling 4-2-4 formation. This formation hurt the Lady Rangers because of the incredible speed from the Blue Devils up top, which allowed them to get advantages offensively. FHC found themselves in a situation they hadn’t been in this year yet, as they were down 2-0 going into the locker room at halftime.

The Lady Ranger offense came out much better to start the second half, as senior Ashley Ward had a near-scoring opportunity as she hit the post and almost put the Lady Rangers on the board. The rest of the FHC offense got much more opportunities on goal and looked like they could make a comeback run, but the solid back four from the Blue Devils trapped the Lady Rangers, as the Rangers eventually suffered a tough 3-0 loss.

This loss puts FHC at 3-1 on the season with conference play coming up next week. The Lady Rangers will have an enormous game coming right out of the gate, with a rivalry match against the Forest Hills Northern Huskies. FHC and FHN split the season series last year, and with the Lady Rangers coming off a hard loss like this one against Gull Lake, there could be no better way to bounce back than to beat the arch-rival.
