  On Monday,  Nov. 26, girls’ soccer succumbed to Ruben S. Ayala HS with a final score of 1-4.

 According to centerback Frida Monsalvo (12), the team’s performance suffered as a result of lacking commitment and communication.

 “We did not perform very well. We [took] a week off, had a practice right before our game, and were not focused or in sync,” said Monsalvo. “[In the future,] we will [focus on] not being intimidated against top schools.”

 Similarly, coach Matthew Rojas believes the team will recover, despite the magnitude of the defeat.

 “We [did not] deserve to lose one to four. We did however come out flat, with good individual performances but lacking team cohesion,” said Rojas. “[We will improve teamwork through] meetings on and off the field so the girls [can] communicate about issues.”

 All in all, center back Giselle Cornejo (12) is optimistic of the team’s future.

 “[It might be a long road ahead,] but our ultimate goal is to become CIF champions,” said Cornejo. “[We have potential, but we must be more] enthusiastic.”

 Girls soccer will face Nogales HS in their next game on Dec. 4.
