WHITEFISH BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) — The Whitefish Bay women soccer staff is again the place they belong this week — at state.
“We have to play our game. We’re a very talented team, we just have to showcase that through the state of Wisconsin,” stated Alair Posard, senior captain.
The defending champs come into the ultimate 4 with a goal on their backs.
“It’s a little bit nerve-wracking but I think a lot of times it translates to how we play on the field. It brings up our energy. We know all these teams are wanting to beat us, they’ll do everything they can to try to beat us,” Sofia Englund, junior midfielder, stated.
With a lot stress, the Blue Dukes took the sting off at Monday’s apply taking part in kickball and some different unfastened video games.
“They understand it’s a game,” stated Head Coach Rob Dubinski. “It’s supposed to be fun. Coming to practice and making sure they’re enjoying themselves while they’re still getting things out of it.”
“Coaches do a really good job balancing it all out and making sure that we’re checked in when we need to be, but also it’s high school soccer and we get to have fun a lot of the times and have fun with our team,” Lucia Englund, junior ahead, stated.
The Englund twins lead the staff in scoring. The D1-bound juniors have a particular bond on and off the sector.
“We’ve played with each other since we were like six years old, said Sofia Englund. “We know precisely how every of us play. I do know the place she needs the ball, I do know what she’s good at, she is aware of what I’m good at.”
“I simply assume we’ve actually good chemistry collectively, “Lucia Englund said. “We know one another and the way we play very well. So on the subject we all know the place one another are going to be with out essentially trying.”
The top-seeded Blue Dukes will play Sauk Prairie in Thursday’s semifinal.
