In the previous week, the Huskies lost to our rival, the Poly Bears, 0-3. The Huskies look to bounce back and gain a win in the Ivy League to improve their record. As for the Eagles, they are having a great season with an overall record of ten wins, no losses, and four ties. They are off to a great start in league play with two wins, no losses, and one tie. The Eagles came off a game against the Poly Bears with a score of 1-1. The Eagles are ranked 16 in the state of California, so they bring a tough matchup for the Huskies. As these teams face off, they look to gain an edge on one another and get a win to improve their league record. 

In the first half of the game, the Huskies came out absolutely electric. The offense came out on fire right out the gate, scoring goals just in the first half of the game. The Huskies were also getting the job done on the defensive side of the ball, only allowing one goal after Valley View threatened multiple times. Goals were kept to a minimum for both teams for the remainder of the first half. 

As the second half of the game was underway, the Huskies attacked well and got many good offensive looks but it was all Valley View from the second half to the remainder of the game. The Eagles’ offense burst out in the second half, scoring three goals. Their defense was on lockdown as they shut out the Huskies in the second half. 

After a tough loss, the Huskies look to bounce back next week as the host of the Temescal Canyon Titans in another Ivy League matchup.
