BEECHER | The roller coaster girls soccer season just continues for Beecher.

Despite the excitement of the team's first-ever Wounded Warrior Project benefit game, the Ladycats fell to rival Grant Park 1-0 Monday night.

Though Beecher had plenty of scoring chances against Grant Park, shooters were unable to finish in front of the net.

"We've been this way all season long," Beecher coach Dawn Compton said. "We have advantage and we don't finish. That's been our problem all year long. For some reason we don't want to put the ball in the back of the net."

The Grant Park defense was the difference between a Beecher lead and a 0-0 tie at the half. The Ladycats (6-6) took shots on the Grant Park goal, but were shooed away by the Dragons defense and goalkeeping.

"We're just on a roller coaster," Compton said. "We're up we're down, we're up we're down. Until they start playing consistent, we're just going to continue on this roller coaster."

Grant Park scored 10 minutes into the second half, and the Ladycats were unable to overcome the one-goal lead.

"This is not how we play at all," Beecher senior Stephanie Hall said. "We communicate more, we pass more, we get our crosses off. We just were not on our game today. It's disappointing."

The Beecher girls were hoping to raise $1,200 for the Wounded Warrior Project through all proceeds from the game, and Hall hopes the game can become an annual occurrence for the Ladycats.

"I really like the idea that we're doing this whole project," Hall said. "It's nice to honor people that don't get recognized every day. I hope we get to do it again next year because I feel like it's a good cause."
