Manhattan High’s girls soccer team faced off against, arguably, their biggest rival, Washburn Rural.

In their Thursday matchup versus Washburn Rural, the team played on their home field hoping to be able to gain some advantage on their rival.

“At the beginning we were definitely really hyped up, we really wanted to beat that team,” senior Leah Beyer said. “I mean, we want to be every team we play, but it’s different because of past experiences with this team so it’s definitely, right from the beginning, it’s super competitive.”

During the first half, the lady Indians held onto possession of the ball for the majority of the time which prevented Washburn from scoring.

Yet even with the possession, the Indians never managed to get the ball through the goal, leaving the score 0-0 at half. After battling hard in the second half, the Junior Blues managed to score, leaving the Indians down 0-1. At that point there wasn’t much time left in the game, but the girls kept fighting.

“It was just really disappointing because it was towards the end of the game,” Beyer said. “We still continued to work hard, but you could definitely see that everyone started to let down a little bit, because they were definitely realizing we didn’t have that much time.”

The Indians ended up losing the game 1-0

The girls were expecting to play another tough opponent in their league, Bishop Carroll, on Saturday, but that game was unfortunately cancelled due to cold weather.
