The girls soccer team beat Basehor-Linwood 8-1 on Tuesday, May 3.

“I thought the game went really well,” freshman forward Shyanne Best said. “It started off slow because we were tired from the game yesterday, but then it got stronger.”

After defeating Blue Valley North 2-1 in overtime on Monday, May 2, in overtime, the team members returned to the field strongly motivated to keep their momentum going, senior forward Kennedy Hoffman said.

“We had good transitions and were able to connect really well,” Hoffman said. “We looked really smooth out on the field.”

Although the Lady Jags held a wide lead of 4-1 at halftime, Basehor-Linwood players continued to put pressure on the team, leading to a physically rough game.

“[Basehor-Linwood] started off not too bad, but, as we progressed and started passing around, they would chip or get a little more physical,” Hoffman said.

Despite the intense physicality of the game, the Lady Jags maintained their competitive edge, beating Basehor-Linwood 8-1.

“I thought we connected passes well toward the end,” Best said.

According to Hoffman, the win exemplified the team’s success this season.

“It felt really good to win tonight,” Hoffman said. “We’re going 12-0 right now, so getting a win is always nice.”
