The Hillsboro Hawks Girls Soccer team took on the North County Raiders, coming out of it with more success than in previous games. The Hawks fought hard in a 3-1 los, but had a game full of improvements.
North County jumped to an early lead in the fourth minute and added another in the 23rd. The Hawks were able to strike back with a goal of their own from Colleen Theiss, assisted by Zoe Wood, in the 27th minute.
“I think our positioning and spacing has been improving,” Theiss said. “We have a lot of things to perfect yet, but we are hopeful.”
The Hawks beat back the Raiders offense for almost the entirety of the second half while looking for their own chance to tie up the score. While the Hawks’ chance for another goal didn’t appear, the Raiders snuck in a final goal in the 78th minute.
Baylei Clubb played all 80 minutes in goal and saved 12 of 17 shots. The Hawks had five shots on goal of their own.
“We definitely played better than we have these past few games,” Head Coach Sam Nansel said. “We still have a lot of work to do in order to get to where we want to be. This game was a step in the right direction and we will continue to improve.”
The Hawks now prepare for the trek up to Farmington to take on the Knights on April 8th.
