On Thursday October 3, the Olathe Northwest Ravens soccer team lost to Shawnee Mission East 0 to 3.
The boys started off strong, keeping a 0-0 tie throughout the first half. After a group huddle and a pep talk, the second half began. In the 46th minute, the Lancers score on goalkeeper John Lindsey, changing the score to 0-1. Shawnee Mission East scores again in the 57th minute, leaving the Ravens down by 2. “Once the second half started, I don’t think we came out with the same mentality,” said defender, Ethan Moore.
The Lancers score once more, finishing the game 0-3. “We feel like we were the better team but things just didn’t go our way. Our effort as a team was low… [there were] small mistakes that added up to large deficits that we couldn’t come back from,” said defender, Alex Pauli.
The next game is tonight against Lawrence High School at Lawrence.
