Just recently on December 1, 2015 our Natomas Leading Edge Knights girls soccer team had a tournament Bradshaw Christian. We played a total of two exciting games. In the end the knights didn’t get first, however with the help of our incredible coaches the whole team including Nuha Ghamian, Reyna Velazquez, Leah Miller, Emily Tang, Caitlin Law, Minerva Perez, Mia Collins, Kennedy Wise, Sofia Flores, Alex Clemons, Mika Shinoda, Sonia Singh, Mariana Jones, and Salma Qudiri worked very hard to earn 2nd place in the entire tournament.
The first game was at 2:05 versus Mills Middle School. During the first half of the game the score was 2-0 knights. Our coaches told the team that they were doing great and we all agreed with them to. Each and everyone of the soccer-loving players had been playing the best they had played all season. During the second half Natomas Charter scored three more goals. However for the three goals that we scored the other team scored one, but when everyone heard the ringing of the referee’s whistle they immediately knew the game was over. The final score of that game was knights over Mills 5-1. Then the soccer team pridefully walked over to the next field where Mitchell awaited us.
After we won our first game against Mills 5-1 we played Mitchel. During this game we played the hardest that we had ever played together this whole season. In the first half of the game we were staying strong while our goalie was making amazing stops, and the defense marking and covering everyone, while the offense was trying hard to get a goal. However, Mitchell's defense was also staying strong and not giving up, while their offense was working very hard. After the first half the score was 0-0 . Our coaches told us that we were doing great, and that we needed to keep it up. In the second half we worked even harder than we did in the first half, but Mitchell was also working harder. With about 10 minutes into the second half of the game Mitchels goalie drop kicked the ball, and there player got a breakaway and scored which made the score 0-1. Unfortunately our team couldn’t get back up on the leaderboard so we lost the Championship game 0-1. But the girls on the soccer team played an amazing heartfelt game.
Overall the Natomas Charter Knights girls soccer team represented our school amazingly. Our fantastic goalies Leah and Mia only let in two goals throughout the tournament. On the other hand our forwards and midfielders scored 5 goals in the two games that were played. So, when you see somebody who was on the girls soccer team congratulate them because they did an outstanding job!
