Varsity Girls Soccer Goes 1-1-1 in their Invitational

Weekend invitation leaves Sequoits split in record.

This weekend, the varsity girls soccer team hosted an invitational at home. The Sequoits played three games and went 1-1-1.

In the first game, the girls played Westosha Central. Antioch started out really slow on the offensive side. Their defense was strong, but their offense didn’t show up and neither did Westoshas’. The teams tied 0-0 after a long game.

Saturday morning, Antioch competed against Belvidere North. Belvidere scored two in the first half, but Antioch answered back with scoring two. Although the girls were able to tie it up, in the last ten minutes, Belvidere was able to break down there and score again. The girls ended up losing 3-2.

“We put up a good fight,” junior Samantha Champney said. “We didn’t end up with the results we wanted, but we know what we need to work on.”

In their last game of the invitational, they played Brooks College Prep Academy. The Sequoits won 5-0. Two of the five goals were scored by sophomore Andrea Santoya. The other goals were scored by Champney, junior Kacey Meltzer and sophomore Allyson Pierce. Antioch also played strong defense allowing their opponent zero chances to score.

“This win gave us some confidence leading into conference play after our rough first games,” sophomore Kaitlyn Holmes said. “We started off slow but in the second half we came out ready to play and score.”

Antioch’s next game is April 15 at Waukegan High School. The Sequoits are looking to carry their offense from their last game into the week.
