1-0 at halftime. 1-0 at end of game. Sunny and warm.
This was the Benzie Girls Varsity Soccer team’s 10th game overall, and it was our second Saturday home game. We were quite evenly matched with Kalkaska’s team, but our girls just wanted it more, so we had many more offensive plays than they did, which translated to our lone goal, scored by Emma Husøy.
Goalkeeper Maile Church was still out for her knee injury from Wednesday’s game, so Molly Lehn (usually our center defensive stopper or a wing defender) played in net and did quite well again in that position! Sadly, Megan Cota (usually our defensive sweeper) had to go to New York for her grandfather’s funeral. These two girls are core to our Benzie defense, so we had to switch some positions up in the back, but it worked out very well! (A good thing for defense was Peyton Campbell’s return; we were happy to have her to fill some gaps on defense!)
Our ladies kept the soccer ball out of the defensive end and played extremely well. It was a fun win!
Alice Mummey (Katrina Nummila’s host mother) brought cheese and crackers for a snack. Laurie & Carl Harm (Brenna’s parents) made yummy breakfast burritos, which were greatly appreciated! We also had our mascots back: Nova and Sydney (the dog, not to be confused with Sydney Ghering)!
