Shorthanded girls soccer falls 9-0 to Loggers on the road

The Del Norte girls soccer team was missing several players for various reasons on Saturday, and the shorthanded Warriors struggled to keep up with Eureka, falling 9-0 on the road.

“We were down to 12 players,” said Del Norte head coach Clar Byers. “They gave it their best, had fun and got a little bit wet. I am happy with the girls. Some players who have not played got a lot of playing time.”

The Del Norte girls will be back in action on Wednesday, hosting St. Bernard’s. The Crusaders do not have a boys soccer team, so the girls will take the field at 3:30 p.m. for the only game of the day.
