Things haven’t gone fantastically for the Two Harbors girl’s soccer team this season, but their coach still has confidence they can turn things around.
“We haven’t performed at the level we are capable of,” said head coach Jeff Peterson. “My expectations are high.”
Peterson went on to say that he has seen flashes of brilliance from his players during the young season.
Last week, the Agates were downed by Proctor 1-0, after the Rails scored in the first minute of the game.
“Our team put out a good effort,” Peterson said.
In the team’s next game, they took on Academy of Holy Angels, who was the state tournament’s runner-up last season.
“We played a great first half,” Peterson said.
In fact, Two Harbors took the lead going into intermission after a Lacey Myrdal goal (she was assisted by Ivie Brooks).
The Agates couldn’t muster anything in the second half, and Holy Angels came out firing scoring three goals to give them a 3-1 win.
“We didn’t come out with the same intensity in the second half,” Peterson said.
This week, the Agates topped Duluth Central 2-1. Emily Zeimet (assisted by Sierra Tietge) scored and Myrdal punched one in as well (assisted by Nina Bukowski).
The junior varsity team tied Central 1-1.
According to Peterson, Hannah Broadbent had a stellar game in goal during junior varsity action.
