The score may not have been in the Bullpups’ favor Thursday night, but MHS head coach Chris Adrian couldn’t suppress his enthusiasm after the season opener.
“We looked really good against a quality opponent,” Adrian said, whose team went 3-15 a year ago, said.
“It’s a completely different team from what it was last year.”
Last year’s squad found itself plagued by injuries, including a broken leg by then-junior Colleen O’Connor that required surgery and ended her season in the semifinals of last year’s McPherson Invitational.
Thursday’s 1-0 loss to Salina Central turned out to be a defensive showcase, especially for junior goal keeper Shaelah White, who made an incredible 13 saves in the contest. MHS had three shots on goal in the contest.
The Bullpup JV lost their contest 2-1. Danielle Lacy picked up the goal off an assist by Olivia Hansen.
The Pups are off now until March 26.
