BREC Coach Nick Pressler said the Lady Bobcats played timid against Highlands and a lack of practice time showed.
“We will work on formations and ball movement,” said Pressler. “Having only 12 players with 5 never playing organized soccer before, it’s always going to be a work in progress. I am just glad they didn’t give up. We have 5 freshmen and are very young. They will get on track and improvements is all we can ask for.”
