CONTINENTAL — The Kalida Lady Wildcats soccer team was looking for a bit of redemption on Tuesday night as they took on the Continental Lady Pirates in soccer action as the teams battled for the Putnam County League title.
With the wind blowing in towards the Continental net to start the first half, the Wildcats took advantage and got an early goal from freshman Brittany Kahle to give them a 1-0 lead and never looked back as they rolled to a 3-1 victory.
Holtkamp and Jackie Gardner both added goals for the Wildcats; Holtkamp, Gardner and Joni Kaufman also contributed an assist in the victory.
Sloane Zachrich had the lone goal for Continental.
Kahle took a pass from Summer Holtkamp and placed the shot to the left of Continental goalkeeper, senior Leva Weller, with 30:24 to go in the first half.
Kalida took control early in the contest, keeping the ball in their offensive end of the pitch and wasting no time in delivering the shots at Continental net.
The Wildcat assault continued on in the first 40 minutes of play as the Pirate netminder was repeatedly delivering goal kicks or scooping up shot attempts. Kalida sent in five endeavors in an 8-minute period as Gardner led the attack.
