On Jan. 14 the varsity girl’s soccer team won their home game against North Forney High School 6-0. North Forney was expected to put up a decent fight, but did not in the end, which resulted in Heritage winning their game. 

 

The soccer game was cold, but they had been through colder games. As the girls warmed up they were high of energy going in with positive minds and they believed that they were going to come out of the top. 

 

“The game was easier than expected,” Rachel Allen (11) said. “Last year we tied them 1-1 so we came in with the mentality of winning this go-round. Coming out with that mentality allowed us to dominate the game.”

 

The girls went into the game optimistic about the outcome. Their high energy resulted in a stronghold against North Forney. 

 

“As a team, we felt confident going into the game knowing we could win,” Kyler Kenter (11) said.

 

This game included a large portion of running for the Heritage team and wore them out at times. Not having a certain amount of subs often left the girls tired, and they struggled with keeping up their strength during parts of the game. 

 

“Some of the challenges of this game were conserving out energy due to not have a lot of subs,” Rachel Allen (11) said. “But Coach was really proud of us and our overall ball movement of the entire game.” 

 

The girl’s soccer team won the game with the final score of 6-0. The team was proud of themselves and continue to work toward district games. 

 

“We played as a team like we always should and kept our energy up the whole game,” Aaliyah Blivins (12) said. “We communicated very well and didn’t give the other team opportunities to score.”
