Middle School Soccer
The R-MA Middle School Soccer team took on Chelsea Academy in an away game on Monday, September 23. Chelsea Academy scored 3 goals before halftime. The Yellow Jackets fought back in the second half scoring a penalty kick, but lost 5-1. The team dropped to 2-2 on the season and 2-1 in the VMSC.
After losing their top players to graduation last year, the Yellow Jackets have been experiencing a true "rebuilding" year. Their improvement was noticeable in last night's match against Shenandoah Valley Academy, however, as the two teams battled all the way to game five, with the Yellow Jackets overcoming several significant point deficits to win two games. In the last game, neither team gave ground easily, but SVA managed to pull out the 16-14 win in the end.
