The game was close, for the most part, with the city high girls winning an equal amount of the possession, however their attacks were often forced back. For most of the first half it was tied 1-1, however a goal with 14 seconds left in the half pushed Linn Mar ahead. This advantage was then capitalized on in the second half leading to the end result of 3-5.

“It feels bad to lose such a high intensity game, but this game showed us what we are capable of,” head coach Corbin Scholz said. “Along with the West High and Xavier games. It shows that we are able to compete with high level schools.”

This is the girls teams third loss of the season, along with the losses against Pleasant Valley and Muscatine, their record stands at 4-3.

“I just keep learning how amazing this team is,” Scholz said. “They are strong, resilient, and motivated. They have good team chemistry and like to do well. They are very responsive to adjustments and want to perform at a high level. I couldn’t be luckier with the players I have this season! They are awesome.”
