Waldorf’s lack of players aids girls’ 7-1 soccer victory

The girls’ soccer team won 7-1 against Sacramento Waldorf School on March 6.

Freshmen Annya Dahmani and Evann Rudek, sophomores Natalie Brown and Alexa Mathisen, juniors Maddy Judd and Emma Belliveau, and senior Micaela Bennett-Smith each scored a goal.

The Waves had seven players compared to the Cavs’ 19. Towards the end of the game, the Cavs pulled one of their players off and played with seven too.

Sophomore Anny Schmidt related to Sac Waldorf’s smaller team because she played on last year’s soccer team, which had nine people at some games.

Before the game, sophomore Natalie Brown had been optimistic that the girls would win, as long as they showed up ready to play.

“It’s another game for us to prove what we’re made of,” Brown said. “Hopefully, it will be a tough game because those types of games are when we improve because we have to step up and play harder.”

The girls next face Cornerstone Christian at the Cherry Island Soccer Complex on March 10 at 4 p.m.

Several starters, such as junior Aidan Galati, missed last week’s game against Cornerstone due to illness. So everyone is looking forward to a healthy team.

“I’m really excited,” Galati said. “Next week we’re all going to be able to battle Cornerstone with our strongest line-up.”
