2:30 PM - 4:00 PM Varsity Soccer @ Greens Farms Academy (Game) Loss

Saturdays game played in the rain on the turf at GFA was a thriller.  Walker's was up 1-0 at halftime. Veronica Garcia ''18 hit the crossbar right before halftime.  We got down 3-1 in the second half, but Hannah Ayoobi '16 scored with 15 minutes left. We never gave up the pressure, we hit the post and just missed on a breakaway in the closing minutes. 

Well played by the Wildcats!
