Yet again girls’ soccer takes down Cristo Rey

The girls’ soccer team remains undefeated, beating the Cristo Rey Saints, 2-0, on Jan. 24.

The Cavs had also beaten the Saints earlier in the season, 5-0.

The girls were without junior Nina Dym, who was sick.

The lack of players has been a problem during the season for the Cavs, since they have only 16 players on their roster, leaving the team with only five subs.

“We need to have better stamina, especially with our team having fewer players this year,” sophomore Abby LaComb said.

LaComb and fellow sophomore Lia Kaufman scored the Cavs’ two goals.

LaComb and Kaufman have been a dynamic duo for the girls. They are first and second in goals, assists and points.

LaComb applauded the Cavs’ defensive performance, which meant not allowing the Saints to get in position to score.

The team’s defense has been sound all season, allowing only three goals.

“Going forward, we need to work on making better runs and work on throw-ins,” LaComb said.

The girls next face the Buckingham Charter Knights (6-0), who are the Cavs’ toughest competition according to LaComb. The game is at 3 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 26, at home.
