Friday night matches have never been a commonplace occurrence for J.D. Rhode and the Jonathan Law girls soccer team. Since Rhode has been the coach, the team has played very few if any games at that time.
"We lacked our usual intensity in those first 15 minutes," Rhode said after his Eagles defeated host Hamden High 3-1. "To play well, we need to put the ball on the ground and use our speed. We weren't doing that. It's always exciting to play under the lights. One of the problems is the kids have all day to think about the game."
