Knowing we’re at tied at our home field should’ve motivated me to attack more to create scoring chances but it didn’t click in my head at the moment” Said Gaytan. The Varsity team believes that the highlight of the game was when Morton scored “The highlight of the game would have been our goal because we brought the game back to life and got the momentum going again” said Carnalla.
