I THURSDAY, September 18, 2014 THE ( 'Lad Quincy optimistic about remainder of season Staff reports The Lady Jacks soccer team lost a pair of games over the past week, but have shown head coach Eric Nelson a glimpse of better days ahead. They lost to Prosser and War- den this past week, but Quincy has another opportunity for a win when they travel to Royal on Thursday for a 6 p.m. kick- off. Prosser 4, Quincy 0 The Lady Jacks had a tall or- der on Tuesday when Prosser (4-0) came to town. The Lady Mustangs'have already defeated Kennewick, Grandview and E1- lensburg to start the season. Prosser defeated Quincy 4-0 in the non-league contest, but there was reason to be excited about the team!s future. "We're playing better soc- cer," said Nelson "I feel we're getting there. We're getting close." Quincy opened the season with barely enough girls to fill all positions. Now they have several players on the bench and players who are more suited in their roles. '6This is something we can work with our lineup," He said. "We are getting them in their natural positions." This led to holding a power- house team to just four goals, as well as taking some shots on their goal. Quincy put up six shots, while Prosser had 32 shots. Yuriela Gonzalez had eight saves and Carla Beltran had two saves. Gonzalez, a senior, only played the first half, as the coaching staff wants to" utilize her abilities in the field. So they are grooming Beltran, a sopho- more first-year player, to be the team's goalie. They realize they might give up a few more goals in the early part of the year, but it will pay off in the long run. 'I'm willing to sacrifice some goals against us to get a chance to score some goals for us," said Nelson. Warden 2, Quincy 0 The visiting Cougars found the back of the net in the first minutes of the second half en route to a 2-0 win over the Lady Jacks. Warden's first goal came in the 42nd minute off a shot by Jennifer Mendoza. Mikayla Jol- ley added the second goal in the 70th minute. Quincy keeper Yuriela Gon- zalez had eight saves in the first half and Carla Beltran had two saves in the second half. Quincy Kurtis J.
