“The girls played with much more heart tonight than they did last night,” said Jason Oulman, head coach of the Prairie View ThunderHawks.
On this chilly Friday at PVHS, the varsity girl’s soccer team was overtaken by the Rock Canyon Jaguars with a score of 6-0 at the final buzzer.
This is the ThunderHawks’ second loss of the season. Standley Lake beat the ThunderHawks 6-0 Thursday night.
Despite what he called a lack of “seasoned players in key areas,” Oulman is very optimistic about the season ahead.
“Compared to last year, we lost our first six games and we had more seniors on the team,” Oulman said. “We are basically starting out with a new team, with all the young girls we have this year. The girls are getting very energized and the potential for a great season is here as long as we stick together and increase individual strengths.”
Brighton, Aurora Central, Hinkley, Westminster and Adams City are the 5A schools in the Skyline League. Skyview, Prairie View and Fort Lupton are listed as 4A schools.
Prairie View plays half of its games against out of conference teams, which is a challenge all to itself according to Oulman.
“However; we do have a lot of talent this year which brings a great team to build on,” Oulman said.
There were a couple of players who stayed down on the field a little longer than normal to nurse their injuries but quickly recovered. Due to the cold weather, the girls seemed to get stung a little more when hit with the ball. Jasmine Contreras and Jenia Crail, both sophomores at PVHS, had the team’s top individual performances according to Varvee.com. Goalkeeper Rachel Rawlins had 23 saves.
The ThunderHawks travel to Elizabeth Thursday.
