Lady Mavs back in action
By TAYLOR MITCHELL
Nearly one year ago, the Manchester Academy soccer team saw its season end in a devastating semifinal loss to Laurel. Now, the Lady Mavs are trying to repeat that performance and improve upon.
“I’d like us to win state. That’s what I expect us to do,” first-time head coach Casey Jacobs said. “I think we have the talent to do it. That’s our ultimate goal. I want them to have fun and that’s important too, but we’re all out here to win.”
To make it one game further this year than Manchester did in 2011 will be no small task, especially when you lose a 40-goal scorer. However, the defense and midfield will be able to control the game and keep opponents’ offenses at bay to allow the young forwards time to grow and become potent goal scorers.
