A rough evening against a well-disciplined team led to a 4-0 defeat for our Whitewater Whippets Soccer Team on Thursday, September 29. McFarland came out strong with some beautiful 1-2 touch passing, and it proved too much to handle defensively. McFarland also managed to dominate the midfield and allowed your Whippets very few opportunities going forward. Considering all of that, Whitewater did show massive improvements in the winning of 50-50s as well as our overall possession percentage. Secondly, despite a rough first half, the Whitewater defense allowed far fewer opportunities in the second half. Henry Mortimer played a huge role in this with a few crucial saves. The highlight of the evening came at the end of the game with the honoring of our senior class. The evening ended with players, families, coaches, and community members joining together in honoring the 4 years of soccer we had with this wonderful group of athletes.
