After Beating West Liberty in our season opener last Thursday 2-0, we then went to the Iowa City Trojan Classic.
We got a great win against Southeast Polk 2-1, while losing the Iowa City High 1-0 and to Cedar Rapids Washington 2-0.
I feel like we played good in the Trojan Classic. We lost to two very good teams and hung with them.
Our team is ready for our first Mississippi Athletic Conference game against the Bettendorf Bulldogs on Thursday evening with kickoff at 4:30 p.m. We have all been waiting for this game and preparing for it, as we return defending our MAC title.
We have to start off with a victory. To our team, there would be nothing better than to get a great win on Thursday and knocking off out biggest rivalry. We are all excited and ready to play.
