Last night, the Patriots traveled to Hampton to play Bethel. We all enjoyed the fellowship with our friends from across the water and had a good night of competition as well.
The Varsity volleyball team had an off-night and struggled to execute their offense effectively, but as the game progressed things got better. They finished the match with a much improved third set. Nights like these remind us that we need to keep working and preparing for each game and learn from the losses as they happen. Final scores for the sets were 11-25, 10-25, 16-25.
The JV volleyball team played another good match against the Lady Pilots with close games in all three sets. Dayun Shin served for the game winning play in the second set. All the girls played well, and it is evident that each one is improving her skills. The final scores for their match were 17-25, 26-24, 7-15.
The soccer team played a tight game with Bethel in this second meeting during the season. There was only one goal scored at the end of the first half leaving the final score at 1-0 in favor of the Bethel Pilots. Mr. McGary said that our guys had great ball control and took some good shots on the goal, but they just couldn’t find the back of the net last night. It was a great effort by the Patriots, and we hope that the guys get some much-needed rest over the weekend after some very physically demanding games this week.
Next week holds three varsity volleyball matches on Tuesday at Gateway, Thursday against Commonwealth at home, and Friday against Landmark at home; only one JV match at home on Friday against Landmark; and two soccer games at Gateway on Tuesday and against Landmark at home on Friday. Pray for our athletes this weekend and this week that they would stay healthy as we anticipate a busy week to come. Thanks for your support! GO PATRIOTS!!!!!
