As the season ends, soccer kicks into gear

As the weather is getting colder, the intensity is rising for sports teams across Bucks County and greater Pennsylvania. Sports teams are finishing up their regular season games and preparing for playoffs.
 The New Hope-Solebury Girls’ Varsity Soccer team is getting pumped, nervous, and anxious for their first round of districts.  With a record of 5-4 in the league throughout the regular season, no team is highly favored. Who wants it more will win.
 The first and hopefully not the last district game will be played on Nov. 2 at 7 p.m. The location is to be determined, as is the opposing team. The team has an idea that it will be The Christian Academy but other teams in the Bicentennial Athletic League still have several games to play.
 As for the Lions, the only thing left to do is to prepare. With the remaining week of practice, players will go on long runs, visit the weight room, and scrimmage.
 Besides physical workouts, the team is also looking forward to the team bonding trip to soak up the fall season while enhancing the dynamic of the team. The team has plans to go on a hayride and participate in activities such as a corn maze and team sleepover. After all, in three weeks or so, the season could be over. For seniors it’s very bittersweet.
 So for now, the team must prepare for playoffs and enjoy the time left together. Before any of us know it, we will be lacing up our basketball sneakers and polishing our lacrosse sticks getting ready for the new season. Time is crucial, and we will hopefully make the most of it by diving into the next round of districts.
