Harrison Goalie Jackie Fonseca knows that even when the play is breaking away from her end of the soccer field she has to be on her toes. “At any given moment, anything can happen,” she says. But the randomness obviously increases as the action bears down on her and being open to the added intensity plays a big part in closing down attacker after attacker.
“When you make a big save and the crowd goes, Oh my God, how did you do that,” says the senior captain, “It’s worth the pressure.”

Unfortunately, the offense seems to have hit a wall and the scoring lately has been scant. “We’re in a slump,” she says.
But she’s certain the 4-6-1 start does not reflect where Harrison will be at the end. I think this team will go further in the sections than last year’s semifinal exit, she concludes.
