New Berlin Eisenhower girls soccer
New Berlin Eisenhower girls soccer dropped its lone match last week, falling 6-1 to Whitefish Bay in a game played April 13 at Whitnall High School.
The Blue Dukes, the top-ranked team in Division 2, took a 3-0 advantage into halftime before scoring twice more in the first 13 minutes of the second half and again in the 65th minute. Alyssa Stuckart scored for Eisenhower in the 64th minute.
"With our limited outdoor practice time and their superior skills, we just didn't match up well," Eisenhower coach Nick Datka said. "We didn't give up a ton of shots, but the ones they took were pretty much on target.
"Complicating things even more for us was our inability to execute on our opportunities. When you play against a team that level, you can't leave goals on the field."
With the loss, the Lions dropped to 2-2-1 overall. Eisenhower will host Cudahy/St. Francis at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 25.
"I felt like our effort and work rate were good, but we need to get some quality outdoor practice time," Datka said. "With spring break and five games in six days when the team returns, we are going to have to figure out some things on the fly. I know we are better than what we have shown, we just need to work some stuff out."
