Girls Varsity Soccer Hard Fought Opener Against Potomac
The Cardinals opened their Fall 2021 season with a 0-5 loss against the Potomac School Varsity team. The first half of the match saw the Ireton defense under heavy attack from Potomac with a diving series of saves from senior captain Katie Scolese.
The Cardinals returned at half time with a stronger offensive presence and several passing sequences resulting in several attempts to score and shots on goal. In the 63rd minute of the game, the Cardinals, led by senior captains, Jane Elkins and Bella O’Brien, found themselves in scoring position in a fierce goal-mouth battle only to be denied by the Potomac defense. The Cardinals played a tough first match and will return to the pitch Thursday to play the Connelly School of the Holy Child on their home field at Witter.
