After taking a break to figure out the team’s offensive needs, the girls’ soccer team has won all four conference games, said senior captain Sammi Baer.

According to Baer, the understanding of teammates positioning on the field during the game has improved since the start of the season.

“Everyone agreed that we needed to start focusing on the offensive part of the game so during practices we put a lot of effort into knowing the runs people are going to make and how to play our formation,” Baer said. “We just focused more on attacking rather than defending.”

Senior captain Anna Roethler said as a captain, she tries to motivate her team before big games and help out offensively, even as a goalie.

“For a big game I try to get everyone else hyped up,” Roethler said. “I also try to help out as much as I can offensively but it is kind of limited.”

The team has won its last five games in a row. The girls latest game ended in a 4-0 win over Minneapolis South, who last year defeated Park in Sections.

The team plays next at 5 p.m. Sept. 27 at the Bloomington Jefferson high school against Bloomington Jefferson.
