Highlands MS girls soccer team defends home turf against Summit

Highlands Middle School girls soccer team hosted Summit on Wednesday and won 7-1.

Highlands Coach Caleb Brown said the girls did a great job on the field.

“The girls played wonderful, they all clearly knew their positions and were adamant about getting to and winning the ball,” said Brown. “Highlands moved around the field and passed the ball effectively. They took good shots on goal and followed up their shots so that they scored more goals.”

Summit Coach Scott Whitman said this is a learning process, but he sees good things on the horizon.

“I believe the girls played well,” said Whitman. “They fought hard though the entire game. We have a rather inexperienced team with great potential. That was our first game of the season and many of our girls first soccer game.”

Whitman added that he’s excited to see the Lady Bears grow and improve throughout the season.

Brown said he’s looking forward to seeing some good things from the Lady Highlanders.

“Moving forward in the season, I think these girls will develop as strong players and continue to grow their passion for the sport,” he said. “The girls always want to be competitive in games, but what is most important to them is giving their all on the field.”
