Our soccer team this year started out as a bright star. After crushing the Midland School we believed we could go all the way. But coming back from our month break and losing five players, we have struggled since. Unfortunately by losing those key players we have had problems finding players to fill those voids and we have not really been able to find our balance.
Coming off of two defeats to the Thacher and the Dunn schools, we have had our spirits down a bit. Coming up on Saturday we were set to play one of the best teams in the state, Cate School. Saturday morning I woke up to the wonderful sound of rain. The pitter-patter had never sounded so good.
With the rain meant that we would not have to play Cate and most likely suffer another crushing defeat. Not I am not a coward but nor do I like to suffer terrible defeats, and with half our team “infirmed” we would not have stood a chance.
So we were saved by the weather from a terrible fate, and hopefully we will be able to stand a chance the next time we play them.
