The OA Girls Varsity soccer team played against the Templeton Eagles on Thursday, January 18th. Although they battled hard the entire game, they failed to come out on top, losing to Templeton 1-0.

The team started off slow, giving up a goal in the first few minutes of the game. However, the girls managed to shake off the rough start and increased their intensity to dominate the second half. While the Spartans may not have scored, their defensive strategies kept them in the game.

The Templeton girls played an extremely rough and aggressive game, a point noticed by players and parents alike. The referees left something to be desired, as they did not call a foul even when the opposing team was being unnecessarily rough. The Lady Spartans increased their aggressiveness in order to defend against the feisty Eagles, resulting in a player from each team receiving a yellow card.

Coach Brian Speer says the girls played extremely well. He thinks Templeton’s goal was a lucky shot, and that Templeton had a hard time working against the Spartans’ pressure. “I think we really outplayed Templeton.” he says. “They just got lucky.”

The Lady Spartans will be playing at home against Santa Maria on Wednesday, January 24. They will also have another chance to defeat the Eagles in Templeton on Friday, January 26.
