Rudy Brandl

The W+H girls' soccer team lost its first game of the season to Oak Knoll in the opening round of the state playoffs on Wednesday afternoon. The Rams (7-1) swept through an abbreviated regular season with an undefeated record and unofficial title in the GMC Blue Division. They had outscored their seven victims by a 33-2 margin but dropped a tough 2-1 decision to Oak Knoll in the states.

Oak Knoll scored twice in the first nine minutes of play but the W+H girls carried the play for the rest of the game, scoring with 5:15 remaining in regulation to make the closing moments more dramatic. Student supporters lined the home sideline to support the Rams, who fell just short on a blustery, cold afternoon.

It was the final game for six fantastic W+H seniors: captain Arian Di Landro ’21, Olivia De Sousa ’21, Mikayla Cole ’21, Nyela Liverpool ’21, Samantha Gordon ’21 and 100-goal scorer Bella Wysocki ’21.
