Girls show solid defense
The Yellow Springs High School girls soccer team had a challenging but strong game against Metro Buckeye Conference opponent Dayton Christian on Thursday, Sept 17.
Despite a loss of 10-0, the Bulldogs played a solid defensive game. The 14-member team is made up of nine players returning from last year, three newcomers who have not played competitive soccer before this season, one transfer student and one freshman. Two players are also members of the volleyball team.
The group, which is continuing to improve playing together as a unit, was next scheduled to face Madison Plaines, on the road, Wednesday, Sept. 23.
