Girls Varsity Soccer Loses To Grayslake North

The Sequoits put in their all but ended up falling to the strong attacking Knights on Thursday, April 4.

At Grayslake North, the Sequoit’s girls varsity soccer team played the Knights in a cold and rainy game. However, the weather didn’t stop the Sequoits from giving the opposing team a tough fight.

The girl’s defense came out determined to stop the Knights fast offense, but the team struggled to keep up the pace as they battled through the entire game.

“I think we need to work on communication,” sophomore midfielder Allyson Pierce said. “We all are working really hard on it.”

In the first half junior outside back Samantha Champney scored a corner kick off a cross pass from junior striker and midfielder Mikayla Holway. Grayslake North answered back though, scoring one in the first half as well since the Knights were able to break down the Sequoits defense and find the gaps.

“Our offense created a lot of opportunities but we couldn’t seem to finish them,” Champney said. “The season is young and we have plenty of time to improve.”

The Knights scored again in the second half, leading to their win over the Sequoits 2-1. The girls are looking to get back into a win streak this week.
