Heights soccer drops opener


April 11, 2019

The Wisconsin Heights/Barneveld girls soccer team dropped their season-opener, 4-0, to Madison La Follette on April 2.

The game was scoreless until 10 minutes had elapsed in the second half, when the Lancers broke through. La Follette added three more goals after that.

“We played them tough in the first half,” Vanguards coach Bartlett Holmes said. “During the second half, the girls lost intensity for a few minutes and La Follette really took advantage of that.”

Despite the loss, Holmes was happy to get in a game against a high-level, Division 1 opponent.

“It was great to play a team of their caliber for our first game,” Holmes said. “It let us see what we need to fix. I think we’ve got a strong season ahead of us.”
