Hastings High School
Wayland High School
The girls kicked off their District play with a home game vs conference foes Hastings last night and came away with a big 6-0 victory. The Wildcats started off hot as Ashlyn Schafer opened up the scoring just 6 minutes into the match on a pass from Brinley Nieuwenhuis. Haley Thelen waited only 6 more minutes to double the lead as she shot from distance and found the far side netting for a beautiful second goal.
Schafer and Nieuwenhuis connected again on a corner kick for the third goal of the game 4 minutes later as Schafer finished off a great ball from Nieuwenhuis on the set piece. The half concluded with Brinley adding her third assist of the half when she hustled to keep a ball alive and found senior Ali Cutler wide open in front of goal to take the lead to 4-0 at halftime.
The second half saw a much more even game but the Wildcat offense was too much for the Saxon defense to handle as they found the back of the net twice more; Ali Cutler from Ashlyn Schafer and a late penalty kick goal from Brinley Nieuwenhuis finished the game off with the final score of 6-0.
The girls travel to Mattawan on Thursday to face off against Gull Lake at 3:00 pm in District Semi-Final action.
