The William Penn girls soccer team kicked over five shots onthe Newark goalkeeper Alexis Smoot and had four corner kicks in the game.

Sophomore Vanessa Caudillo said, “A lot of players on the team are injured, so maybe that’s  the reason why they are having a tough time going up against other teams.”  

Caudillo also said, “To win more games, they have to move the ball around the field faster, communicate, and create more chances throughout the rest of the season.”

On April 20, the team went up against another tough opponent, Appoquinimink High School, at William Penn. The game ended 0-6.
The team is currently 5-5 and plays its next game away April 28 against Tower Hill High School.
