CONVOY - The Crestview Lady Knight soccer team was the last thing in the way between the Kalida Lady Wildcats and an undefeated season coming into Thursday night’s contest at the Crestview Athletic Complex.
Unfortunately for the hosts, Kalida was too strong and came away with a 6-0 victory to clinch the team’s first undefeated season in school history.
“(The girls) are all really excited. Tuesday night was our last league game and we won the league for the fourth year in a row, so the girls were pretty excited about that,” Kalida coach David Kehres said. “You wonder about an emotional letdown coming into the next game, coming off a high. The girls are just excited. We’ve had a great year, all the girls get along well. The team chemistry is the best I’ve seen in my six years of coaching.”
The Lady Knights knew they would have their hands full with the Putnam County League champions coming to town for a non-conference tilt.
“We knew it was going to be a rough one coming in; it was very physical. They’re an excellent team - kudos to them,” Crestview coach Melissa Mefferd said. “They are a very good passing team. We just tried to pack it in on defense but it’s hard when you have a team that can pass the ball to the foot of their players - and those shots and everything.”
