It was an overcast rainy crisp afternoon, the Eaglebrook School Junior Varsity 2 (JV2) team was filled with anticipation to play their first game of the season at home against Turners Falls. The JV2 soccer team was just formed a few days ago and Monday's match would put the team and the coaches to the test to think on the fly and work as a team to bring home the win for the Eaglebrook community.
The two teams walked onto the field to their positions and then the whistle broke the silence. Turner’s Falls kicked the ball and the game began! The beginning was a nail-biter, to say the least, the Eaglebrook team was a bit uncoordinated at first because they did not have a chance to practice as a unit. This is when Turners Falls made their first goal. Morale was hit but the Eaglebrook soccer team never gave up. After that first goal was made, passion for winning ignited for the Eaglebrook team—they spread out and they were passing the ball between the players, and then soon after the game was tied! It was over for Turners Falls and we are proud to say the Eaglebrook team brought home a win. The final score was 6-1 for Eaglebrook.
