Girls Soccer Recaps from Thursday, September 16

(VAR) Franklin County 1, Richmond 1 (home)
FC 1-0 at half

Edited Franklin County recap from coach Cindy Adams: The Lady Wildcats had a hard fought battle against a fast and physical Richmond team.  The match finished in a 1-1 tie.

The ball movement and passing was one of the best games so far and the defense held right. The midfielders were the playmakers winning nearly every ball out of the air.

Our goal came in the first half when keeper Maegan Pearson punted the ball across midfield toward the Richmond backline. Jordan Nichols got on the end of the punt, juked the keeper and walked in the goal like a stroll through the park.

There were other good opportunities for Kamryn Dozier and Nichols with good crosses from Morgan Stewart, Madisyn Sunderhaus, Halee Barker and Kylee Bolser.

Kaitlyn Brunemann was stoic and simply unbeatable in the stopper position. Audrey Weaver was quick to the ball and provided good press on her side of the field.

Bethany Melugin, Dani Bulach, Erica Weaver and Claudia Mauntel all held the center of the field well.

Defenders Maddie Merritt and Mackinzie Brzezinski were the fastest girls on either team and saved several fast breaks each.

Pearson had 11 saves on the night and one assist.

Our Player of Match was Erica Weaver. Her speed of play was quick and she had excellent field vision and connected passes. Every lofted ball in Weaver’s zone was won by her. She was a force and tidal wave keeping the ball from penetrating the back third.
