In its first game back from Spring Break, the girls JV soccer team traveled down to Richland for a matchup against the Blue Devils of Gull Lake. The game was filled with well-disciplined defense, physical play in the midfield, and few chances on goal. Both of the teams matched up very well against each other, and that showed in what resulted in a 0-0 tie.

The Blue Devils were the first challenging opponent for the Lady Rangers this season, and they more than held their own. From the beginning, Gull Lake high pressed the Ranger back line, forcing turnovers from the defense and in the midfield. As a result of the turnovers in the middle, the Rangers used the wings to create some chances. Sophomore Addi Whitten beat her defender multiple times out wide and crossed it into the middle, but FHC failed to capitalize on the few chances they had.

In the second half, freshman goalie Ava Wilberding came to the rescue for the Rangers, saving a penalty kick from the hosts and keeping the game tied at zero. The chances remained sparse, and neither team could score. The game eventually ended in a 0-0 tie, which was an acceptable loss considering without Ava’s save, it could’ve been a loss for the Rangers.

With the tie on Thursday, this game showed the Lady Rangers that not every opponent they will play can be beaten so easily, bringing the team back down to earth. There were positives to take away from the game, like the efficient offensive play on the wings, but things that the team needs to work on like finishing their chances and beating players in the middle of the park.

Next up for the Lady Rangers is a trip to intra-district rival Forest Hills Northern on Monday, where they will begin conference play against an always-tough opponent.
