BLHS girls soccer seeking first home win Friday
The Basehor-Linwood girls soccer team was finally able to play a home game, however the home opener came against one of the better teams in the state and the Bobcats fell to Spring Hill, 10-0.
"We have a very young team with a lot of inexperience," BLHS coach Derek Mazeitis said. "The girls just need to make every experience a learning experience and get better. We played one of the best teams in the state today and I thought the girls showed a lot of heart."
The Bobcats gave up an early goal to the visitors, but kept it a one-score game until late in the first 40 minutes.
Spring Hill scored twice in the final 10 minutes of the half pushing the lead to three at the break.
The momentum carried into the second half for Spring Hill as the Broncos got things going with a goal in the first minute of the half on their way to seven second-half goals.
"We gave up a couple avoidable goals in the first half and things got away from us in the second half," Mazeitis said.
Thursday's loss notwithstanding Mazeitis has seen many positives and feels the team has plenty of potential for success.
"We've done some good things this year," Mazeitis said. "A lot of learning will have to happen in games. As the season goes along and they figure it out I think we'll be OK."
The Bobcats return to their home field again at 5:30 p.m. Friday when they host Piper.
