After winning their first six games, the girls’ soccer team lost its second game in a row at the hands of the Western Sierra Collegiate Academy Wolves, 2-4, on Jan. 30.

Sadly, it was the girls’ senior night since it was their last home game. Each senior was given a rose at the end of the game.

The Wolves came out strong and aggressive from the beginning, scoring three of their first four goals in the first half.

“We need to get better at communicating,” Bhullar said. “At the beginning of the season, we were playing really well on defense, but now we are not.”

Bhullar injured her ankle in the first 10 minutes of the game and did not come back in.

According to sophomore Abby LaComb, not everyone on the team was feeling well.

“Our whole team was kind of off today,” LaComb said.

In addition to their poor defense, the girls’ offense couldn’t generate many scoring opportunities either.

“Our attack was basically nonexistent, so we need to improve that,” LaComb said.

Senior Avi Bhullar said the team needs to work on defense to get back to how they were playing in the beginning of the season.

With the loss, the Cavs are6-2 overall and 4-2 in league.

Their next game is against the Leroy Greene Academy Lions (4-4). In their previous matchup on Jan.9, the Cavs defeated the Lions, 3-2. The game is at 3:30 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 3, at Leroy Greene.
