November 23rd 2021 was Benjamin Franklin’s first high school soccer game for our junior varsity boys, varsity girls, and varsity boys. The drive to Yuma catholic high school was 3 hours long. It was such a long drive. The J.V. boys played first at 2:00 and they ended up losing 6 to 1 but Coleson Bowen (9th grade) scored a goal. They all played pretty well but there is room for improvement. The Varsity girls played next and crushed the Yuma catholic Shamrocks 6 to 0 on their field. Delin Peterson (9th grade) scored multiple goals. And Rachel Grecksa (9th grade) scored once but her point was taken away because of a bad call of “Offsides”. The last game was the Varsity game. It was such a close and intense game. In the first half the Shamrocks scored on us. We were feeling a little down after but we just had to play hard. Jason Allen (12th grade) got fouled in the box but the refs didn’t call a penalty which means he wasn’t able to shoot a penalty kick. In the second half Jason Allen got fouled just past the middle of the field and got to shoot a free kick so he took his shot towards the goal and made it so we tied it up. After that half we went into extra time and they got a couple shots on us and we got a couple shots on them but none of them went in the goal. I can’t wait for the rest of the season to see how we play.
