The Lady Indians soccer team picked up their first loss of the season at the hands of the Hurricane of Wilmington on Thursday night, with a final score of 4-1.
Hillsboro’s sole goal came off the foot of Madison Marsh in the first period.
Two players were in goal for the Lady Indians on the night. Carly Myer had six saves and then Riley Moberly had five.
“This was a tough loss being the first league loss of the season,” said coach Jeremy Ratcliff after the 4-1 loss. “I told the girls that no one gives out trophies at the end of August, but tonight was unacceptable. We can’t continue to play that against the caliber of some of the teams we have to play in this league. A lot of the things we haven’t covered in practice early in the season showed up tonight and that’s on me. The good thing is, it’s game two. We have 14 more games to continue to prepare and get better. We’re going to see Wilmington again and we have Massie coming in next week, so we just have a lot of things to clean up, and even the things we’ve been working on. we have get them to the point where they’re automatic.”
The loss out the Hillsboro girls at 1-1 on the season. They will playing host to Clinton-Massie on Tuesday, September 1 with that game starting at 6:45 p.m.
