On Friday Oct. 30, the Lady Tigers soccer team closed its season with an unfortunate loss. Through ups and downs, however, the Lady Tigers had a good season and great memories were built.
Members of #GramFam who were at the match were intrigued with the game, and there were various opinions regarding how they felt about how the game was panning out.
Grambling State student Ashley Johnson felt as if the Lady Tigers could have won the game if they had played better defense.
Another Grambling student, Jasmine Biltmore, felt as if the Lady Tigers did not do their best, saying they could have had more defense as well as more offense.
One spectator, James Turner, not a Grambling student, blamed the referee for the Lady Tigers’ loss. He felt the team “tried their best” but couldn’t win because they “were cheated.” The great ambition and teamwork presented itself on the field, with both teams. With the lady tigers last game, they played against the University of Arkansas (Pine Bluff), with the Tigers scoring 0, and the University of Arkansas scoring 4.
The soccer coach, Dr. Totty was a great support system for the lady tigers, being passionate about the game of soccer and his team, he led them well during the game as well. There is only one senior soccer player on the team by the name of April Ganc, and she would miss those memories the most, being that it is her last year.
Ganc originally from Laurel, Mississippi has been playing soccer for five years now. Starting her career her senior year in high school, April later attended Copiah Lincoln Community College and was recruited to our Grambling State University. April agreed to continue her education at Grambling State University because of a want for change and something new. Ms. Ganc is a criminal justice major, and her future plans after school would be law school, and she plans on residing in Memphis, Tennessee.
