The game was literally played in a park on a slow grass field. The Manhattan forwards were fast and phyical, and LHS (mostly) didn't adjust to contain them. LHS connected on short passes...but held the ball too long and didn't make runs without ball.
There was some great defense by the same players as always. Ella Magerl was everywhere and Alex Ewy is fearless. They both should be all league for their skill and consistency. There were also some newer players that stepped up, and there is something there for LHS to build upon.

LHS played it close in the first half. There was a little let down in intensity after the first goal was scored off a deflection of a LHS defender.
The offense was able to string together more passes, but not convert them into shots on goal. Especially in the first half, they controlled the ball a little more than usual, but it all only resulted in about 4 shots on goal for the game. The central defense was strong as always. Manhattan had about 25 shots on goal and 15 corner kicks. 2 of the 3 strong players that hold them together back there will return next season.

3-1 is pretty close for the match up...but the article doesn't tell you anything without any statistics or commetary. Sorry that is how they ended the coverage of your season. How did you guys do?

Where is the article about LHS girls' soccer winning last Friday night? Both the varsity team and the JV team won.
