Pirates whitewash Lady Jays
DELPHOS — Continental’s girls soccer crew handed host St. John’s a 3-0 shutout Thursday at the St. John’s Annex.
Scoring for the Lady Pirates were Amelia Weller (assist to Paige Ordway) and Ordway in the first half and Sloane Zachrich (assist to McKenna Scott) in the second.
Continental outshot the Blue Jays 25-8 (16-9 on-goal); Samantha Wehri was credited with 11 saves for the Jays and Emma Recker seven for the visitors.
The visitors had a 6-2 edge in corner kicks.
“They scored the first goal under three minutes; unfortunately, we made a defensive mistake and Continental benefited from it. The second goal was also an error on our part,” St. John’s coach John Munoz explained. “Both teams played a very physical first half. In the second half, we played harder and communicated better, with better passes and runs. Madison (Kreeger) had a total of six shots on-goal, two that hit the crossbar and unfortunately, the ball didn’t appear to have crossed the goal line.
“A lot of our runs, especially the two that hit the bar, were created in an excellent transition from our defensive line who had an excellent game. Continental then scored a third goal. The girls played well tonight; it was a game with a lot of back and forth. Both teams were able to create a lot of fast transitions and played excellent defense. Other than the small mistakes that cost us the goals, the girls never gave up and played with a lot of heart.”
St. John’s hosts Elida 1 p.m. Saturday.
