Wendell High School
On Saturday, September 23 the Lady Trojans headed to Bliss to take on the Bliss Bears. The weather was crisp & cold, make for great soccer weather. This was the make-up game from earlier in the season and going into the game the Lady Trojans knew it would be a tough game, because both teams were trying to secure their place in the standing. Going into the game Wendell had to win to secure a tie for 3rd place. Freshman Yadira Guzman scored her first goal of the season within the first 10 minutes of the game from a pass from Nadia Guadarramma. Bliss responded back on a shot from Fabby Arevalo. With 17 minutes in the game Sophmore Yadia Alvarez scored from a pass from Tatiana Martinez. Wendell kept the pressure on for the rest of the half. The Lady Trojans came off the field confident. With 5 minutes into the second half once again Yadira Guzman scored her second goal of the day from a pass from Junior Jenny Diaz. The score was now Wendell 3 – Bliss 1. The Lady Trojans kept up the pressure on Bliss. Bliss was only able to get 5 shots on goal off the entire game. Next the Lady Trojans take on Bliss at home on Tuesday, September 26 @ 6:15 pm. Both teams are tied going into Tuesday’s match.
