Folsom 1, Nevada Union 0
The Nevada Union girls soccer team lost by a goal to Folsom Monday in a preseason match against the Lady Bulldogs.
The Lady Miners were able to get off five shots to the Bulldog’s seven with neither team finding net in the first half where the Lady Miner’s played the majority of the game in the attacking half.
Ellie Demartini, NU’s keeper, was the team’s player of the game Monday as she made some amazing stops at the goal.
For the first twenty minutes of the second half the play was pretty even and then with seven minutes to go the Bulldogs made an impressive attack and scored a goal after the Lady Miner’s cleared out the ball from a prior attempt. Unfortunately, NU cleared it into a pack of Bulldogs. The defense didn’t allow another score with defensive captain Meaghan O’Conner keeping the defensive back line on their toes.
“Folsom High has some aggressive players that brought a high level of intensity to the pitch,” NU coach Ken Ramirez said in an email. “We have grown since the tournament and were able to improve enough to make this match a close one. As is the case with preseason, we get to see what we need to adjust and the coaching staff will regroup to strengthen the team.”
The Lady Miners’ next match will be MArch 13 at Colfax.
