8th Grade WSMS Girls Battle To A Tie
The Leopards 8th grade girls faced off against Rockwall Utley immediately following the 7th grade game at Willow Springs MS.

Willow Springs started the game against the wind and were able to keep the Wolves off the scoreboard in the first half with strong defense and goalie play leading to a 0-0 tie at half.
The Leopards had several good scoring chances in the second half but were unable to convert until 18 minutes into the period. Willow Springs took the 1-0 lead when Mia Anderson sent a free kick from 25 yards out into the corner of the net. Utley responded three minutes later with a goal of the own to make the score 1-1. Neither team was able to score in the final eight minutes leading to a 1-1 tie. The 8th grade team is now 1-0-1 on the season.
