Miami Trace girls soccer lost at Madison Plains Saturday, Sept. 5, 2-1.

“We struggled to control the ball during the first half and they out-shot us 13 to 9, scoring two goals,” Miami Trace head coach Caitlin Francis said.

Miami Trace trailed 2-0 at the half.

“(In) the second half, we came out strong and controlled the majority of the game,” Francis explained. “We played with increasing intensity and out-shot them 11 to three. Unfortunately we struggled to hit the back of the net with the opportunities we created.”
