The Osceola girls soccer team fell 2-1 to St. Croix Central May 5.
“The girls came out of the gate a little flat and struggled to keep our shape on the field,” explained assistant coach Scott Williamson. “But we were able to still play with SCC.”
Central had a 1-0 halftime lead thanks to converting a long direct kick.
In the 62nd minute, Evelyn Juneski tied the game as she came up from her center back position and made a long shot. The tie was short lived as Central scored the game winning goal four minutes later.
“We came out more aggressive in the second half,” Williamson said. “We did a much better job with time of possession.”
Osceola is now 2-7 on the season.
B-W 7, Osceola 2
“The girls started strong and played a good first 30 minutes and held off the Baldwin attack,” Williamson said.
The end of the first half told the story in the May 3 game as B-W scored three quick goals before the half.
Kiera Williamson scored Osceola’s first goal in the first five minutes of the second half to make the score 3-1.
The Blackhawks answered quickly with four goals in the next 20 minutes to put the game away. Lauren Kramer scored Osceola’s final goal towards the end of the game.
