Pella Girls Soccer Visits Oskaloosa Today

The Pella girls soccer team looks to notch their first win of the season today, as the Little Dutch make the short trip to Oskaloosa. Pella is coming off of a hard-fought loss to Newton on Tuesday, and Head Coach Sam Mate-Kodjo says he hopes to see the team improve defensively.

“I’ve got really good defenders, [but] I think sometimes they forget that they need to play help on defense – cut off angles, make sure the offensive players have fewer options…” said Mate-Kodjo. “In practice I’ve noticed that some of the players would rather play one-on-one, and that’s not how you play defense. ‘Defense’ is team defense.”

The Pella girls square off against the Indians at 5:30 today for the JV/Varsity double-dip in Oskaloosa.
