Dropping to 4-1 on the season in a rough loss to Blue Springs South, the RBHS girls soccer team lost 0-4. RBHS never got going and Blue Springs South managed to put pressure on both the Bruin offense and defense. Head coach Gary Drewing said even though Blue Springs South is a good team, the Bruins could also have played better.
“We didn’t play very well,” Drewing said. “The demeanor of the team was very different from before and  Blue Springs South took advantage of it.”
Senior goalkeeper Sydney Mulholland said that with the loss, the team, including herself, did not seem “ready to play.” RBHS did not put enough effort into defeating Blue Springs South, who dominated the entire game. RBHS did not take advantage of their chances in the same manner Blue Springs South did. Mulholland said that the team still looks toward districts despite the loss.
“I think we were already looking ahead to next week’s district games,” Mulholland said. “We got beat by a very good team.”
Senior midfielder Reilly Strong said the team will have to learn from their mistakes and improve for the next games. Strong said that although the team lost, they are always growing as a team and working on their teamwork. Strong believes that the team needs to always focus on teamwork during their games instead of trying to shoulder everything themselves.
“To beat good teams we have to put together a unified team effort,” Strong said. “We had individual efforts worthy of winning games, but that’s not enough against good teams. We just need to keep working on working together and being ready for every game.”
