Varsity and JV girls’ soccer teams took on Mendez in a home game and won big Dec. 5. JV led with a 1-0, while varsity stole with a 4-1. But this is only the beginning for the Lady Sheiks.
Going undefeated for the past seven games this season, the girls’ win is another step closer to playoffs. Multiple players report that the experience in the games thus far make future games flow more smoothly, even against rival team Bernstein (which they played on Nov. 30 and won 1-0 in Varsity).
Andrea Arancibia, NMA junior, says of her varsity team, “It’s been a great feeling [being undefeated], knowing that the girls and I deserve it. We’ve been working really hard to get this far and hopefully it continues.”
Well-prepared and united, the Lady Sheiks are optimistic about their next game against Soto Mayor at home this Mon., Dec. 11. “We’re going for League Champs. That’s what we really want and we’ll work hard to get there,” says Arancibia.
