Wayland High School
Comstock Park HS/MS
The Wayland Varsity girls were in action for 3 games at the Comstock Park Invitational on Saturday and ended the day with a record of 1 win, 1 tie and 1 loss.
The morning began with a rematch with Zeeland West as the girls tried to get a small piece of revenge for an early season 4-1 loss to the Dux. The game ended in a 0-0 tie that saw both teams evenly compete to win the game on several occasions.
The second game of the day for the Wildcats was against Big Rapids and ended in a 2-0 loss. Paxton Granger played well in net and made 6 saves on 8 shots, none bigger than her kick save to prevent a breakaway goal and keep the game close early in the second half.
The final game saw the home Comstock Park Panthers and was a break out game for the Wildcat offense, scoring 5 goals in a 5-0 win. Madie Aylworth scored twice, Haley Thelen scored her first goal of the season, Hannah Henney found the back of the net with her head on a corner kick, and Brinley Nieuwenhuis added a goal directly from a corner kick late in the game.
