Striving to score

By: Alex Coleman [Ads Editor] @AlexColeman831

She runs down the field, chasing after her opponent who is in possession of the ball. Her teammates are around her, shouting at each other from all around. Her cleats dig into the grass, her legs carrying her as fast as she can manage towards her competitor. She reaches her and steals the ball from underneath her, completely changing her direction and heading towards the other end of the field. The ball gets stolen from her not long later. This is the vicious cycle of a soccer game. The one tonight against Linn Mar will be no exception.

Jade Carter, sophomore, will be playing right and center midfielder at the girls game against Linn Mar tonight. She’s confident that even though the stereo type o Linn Mar is that they’re really good, that her team can come out on top. “I’m pretty scared because they’re really good, but we’re pretty good too. I think it’ll be a pretty even game, and hopefully we can come out on top,” said Carter. Jade knows a few people on the Linn Mar team and is looking forward to seeing them this evening. “I know people there, and it’s really fun that way because then you get to see people you haven’t seen in a while,” Carte commented.

Linn Mar is known for often beating almost anyone and everyone, at everything; Jade, however, knows her team has a few tricks up their sleeves. “We have a really strong offense,” Carter explained. But every strength has a corresponding weakness. “Communication is our biggest weakness, people will be wide open and no one will know. We’re working on that a lot during practices,” said Carter.

After hours of practice, sweat shed over preparation, and every blister and callus earned along the way, Linn Mar is going to have their hands full trying to keep up with our girls. Hopefully, the Marion girls will bring home a win.
