Fans might be experiencing a case of déjà vu after seeing the girls’ soccer team lose 2-1 against Cornerstone Christian for the second time this season.
In the Cavs’ last game against Cornerstone, the girls also lost 2-1 because several starters were unable to attend. According to sophomore Natalie Brown, many starters couldn’t attend this game as well.
Like the girls’ last game, only Brown scored a goal and the referees were intimidated by Cornerstone’s coach, said freshman Katia Dahmani. Cornerstone’s coach had yelled at referees and players and nearly received a red card in his last game against the Cavs.
“At first, they (the referees) were making fair calls for both teams,” Dahmani said. “Then the coach started yelling at them, so the refs made more calls favoring the other team.”
According to Brown, Cornerstone’s coach approached SCDS coach George Champayne after the game to tell him that Brown had played a great game. Champayne then told the other coach not to speak to SCDS players.
“The other coach’s comment didn’t really affect me,” Brown said. “I didn’t care what he thought. I just wanted him to be quiet and let both teams play.”
A Cornerstone player later tripped freshman Evann Rudek, but Rudek went back in the game 10-15 minutes later.
The Cavs’ next game will be on Friday, March 13, at 4:30 p.m. against Leroy Greene at Leroy Greene. Players will be dismissed at 3 p.m.
