"Our energy was directed elsewhere, our over-confidence got the best of us, and we just got beat by a good team, " LVS head coach, Jay Fitzgerald mentioned. Fitzgerald referring to his varsity teams' inability to handle the success after the big win the day before.
With a goal conceded early and late in the first half, the Lady Vikings couldn't take advantage of some solid opportunities created in the opening half. Fitzgerald continued, "When we watched the game as a team, we created some very good situations that we are use to creating but we were too far gone mentality before the game even started and couldn't recover."
The JV had an opportunity to reflect as well and put their words to action on Friday night with their best performance of the season. Paola Vazquez led the way with 4 goals with Alex Alvarado, Victoria Clark, and Madison Ginani each added one of their own.
With several players sidelined due to some minor injuries the Lady Vikings were able to learn from the early week loss and put together a solid shutout victory at home over Greenhill 7-0.
