This week saw the closing of what has been a tough yet hard fought season for DCVI’s soccer teams. On Monday, the junior boys and girls were in Stratford for two games. First, they were at Stratford Northwestern for a game with the boys and girls of Northwestern. The girls in their game played a strong soccer game, however, fell by a close 2-1 score. After that, the junior boys had similar results as the girls against Northwestern, playing another tight, hard fought game, however, dropped that game by a score of 3-2. The teams then went to St. Michael’s Catholic Secondary School, where their hard-working, strong play continued. The boys again put in a strong effort, however, were narrowly defeated by Listowel 2-1. Following that, the girls took to the pitch, and played yet another close game, this time finishing this outing with a 1-1 tie. On Wednesday, the junior boys and girls also went to Central Huron on Wednesday, with both teams running into very tough competition and falling in both games. Both teams experiencing tough losses despite playing well as a team in each game.
As for the senior boys and girls, they were busy on Tuesday, hosting South Huron and F.E. Madill at DCVI. The boys, despite putting in a strong effort in both games fell to the strong play of their opponents, losing 3-0 and 5-0 to both teams. As for the girls, they were able to keep the scoreboard close with their strong play. However, they were also unable to defeat their opponents, falling 1-0 to both South Huron and Madill. Both teams also went to South Huron yesterday for their last game of the season against Goderich, a game which was rescheduled from May 9.
