COLUMBIA — Like each previous game this season, the Rock Bridge girls soccer team failed to score more than one goal Tuesday night.
But that was not an issue this time.
Behind junior Laurie Frew's goal in the 42nd minute, Rock Bridge won on its home field for the first time in nearly two weeks with a 1-0 victory against Quincy (Illinois). The win improved the Bruins to 4-7 on the season.
“I’m pleased with our team and I’m pleased with where we’re at,” Bruins coach Jack Rubenstein said. “I’m glad we got a win and it will add to our confidence.”
And despite the scarcity of scores, Rubenstein is confident the goals will come.
"The girls are understanding what we need to do to put the ball in the back of the net," Rubenstein said. "I'm thrilled with the goal we had today and I'm thrilled with our offense."
For freshman midfielder Cara Wilfong, the outcome was a bit of a relief, as wins haven't come easily for the Bruins.
"It's good to see all the smiles on everyone's faces," Wilfong said. "Going home after you lose, you think about everything you could've done. But after you win, there's a satisfactory feeling there."
Rock Bridge returns to action at 11 a.m. Saturday at Troy Buchanan.
