Mustang girls trample Raiders

by Drew Johnson

Girls’ soccer is already underway here at PCM, and this group is a force to be reckoned with. Their first game of the year was at Hoover High School onTuesday, May 5, where they lost to the Huskies.
“I thought we did pretty good for our very first game of the year. We already have seen more improvements from last year to this year. Our passes, shots and our defense was all better than last year,” junior Abby Waddell said. “We lost 2-0, but I thought we played really well. The game just wasn’t in our favor. The other team got two lucky goals, and our shots just weren’t going in. We still have things to work on, but for our first game, it went well.”
The Mustangs did much better on Thursday, April 7, when they faced off against CMB. They forced their opposition into submission in the second half, when they scored their tenth goal to CMB’s zero.
Freshman Camryn Wignall scored a hat trick (three goals), while Waddell and Colfax senior Jessica Albright each had two.
“It’s truly an amazing experience, and I couldn’t have done it without my team,” Wignall said. “They push me every day in practice to get better, and I can’t thank them enough.”
The first 10 minutes of the game started off slow, but the Mustangs found their stride, scoring six before the end of the half. After that, the girls scored four more to end the game early.
“I think the rest of the season will be great. We are a great team, and we work together really well. I’m excited for the rest of the season, and to see how many more wins we can get,” Wignall said.
The girls play their next game at home against Nevada on Tuesday, April 12 at 5:30.
“We will continue to keep working hard to achieve more goals and improve on things that need to be worked on. I have a feeling this season is going to be a successful one,” Waddell said.
