The Hornets soccer team has lost four-straight games to start the season following a tough 2-0 loss to the VMI Keydets.
The team has started the season with no goals, and has shown obvious frustration knowing they are a better team that should be able to capitalize on scoring opportunities.
Coach Kerri Scroope said, “We will continue to practice hard and play hard, some things we cannot control. Our job is to control the things we can, like how we prepare. The goals will come.”
The next opponents for the Hornets include a trip to New York to play Manhattan, Mount Saint Mary’s, and a home showdown with Wagner as well.
With many conference games still remaining, the season is still in good shape.
It’s not always about how you start, but how you finish and deal with adversity.
A team filled with a good young core and solid veteran leadership has a lot of optimism that this season will be a successful one.
The Hornets now plan to get aggressive and formulate creative offensive strategies to score some goals and bring a few wins back to Hornet Nation.
