Our Girls Soccer Team traveled to Allendale yesterday and came up short with an 8-0 loss.  Considering that this was their first time playing outside this season, they did a great job!  Allendale scored 8 on them the first half but with some ½ time changes the Lady Eagles held them off for the second half.  Their next game is home on Tuesday @ 4:30pm, come out to show your support.
