JV girls playing well

16 years ago

The Presque Isle JV girls soccer team is currently on a seven-game unbeaten streak and have improved its record to 8-1-1. Most recently, the girls have picked up wins against John Bapst, Old Town, Houlton and Central of East Corinth.     On Sept. 13, the Lady Wildcats hosted the Red Devils of East Corinth. Kate Campbell opened the scoring for the Wildcats with just under three minutes gone in the contest, and the Wildcats never looked back.
First-half goals from Shae Adler, Chelsey Carroll, Brittany Good, and Lindsay Michaud capped a five-goal first half. Continuing right where they left off, the Wildcats posted another four goals in the second half from Adler, Carroll, Chelsea Lynds and Haley Johnston. Collecting assists on the day in the 9-0 win were Michaud, Brittany Caron, and Campbell.
Travelling to Houlton just two days later, the Wildcats posted another impressive victory, 6-0 over the Lady Shiretowners. Campbell led the scoring for Presque Isle with two tallies on the day, with Jordyn Kinney, Adler and Casey Carson all adding single goals. Though Houlton was unable to find the net, the Shires did create several scoring opportunities, forcing Wildcat netminders Rilee Currie and Dani Wooland into key saves to preserve the shutout victory, their sixth of the season.
On Sept. 17, the Lady Wildcats travelled to Old Town and posted a 7-2 victory. Presque Isle jumped out to an early 2-0 lead on goals from Adler and Good, but Old Town battled back with two of their own goals late in the half.
The contest continued to be an even affair until, with just under 20 minutes remaining, the ‘Cats went on a scoring rampage. In a 10-minute span, the Wildcats locked up with win with a hat trick of goals from Adler and single goals from Kinney and Paige Doyen.
In a Sept. 24 contest, the Lady Wildcats paid a visit to John Bapst. For 80 minutes, the Wildcats pummeled the John Bapst net with shots, but were not able to score. Taking a total of 50 shots in the game, the ‘Cats gave the Crusaders only a few chances of their own, but Currie was sharp in goal and neatly collected all attempts with eight saves on the day.
“I was really impressed with the way the team played,” said Coach Todd Player. “Too bad we couldn’t have put one away sooner with all the shots we had, but it made for an exciting end.”
Just over a minute into the first overtime period, Lynds stepped up to take her sixth corner kick of the day and sent a cross right to the edge of the seven-yard box. The ball was bounced around between several John Bapst and Presque Isle players as the Crusaders attempted to clear, but it was not to be. Michaud gained possession and slotted the ball across the face of goal to a wide-open Campbell, who tucked it just under the goalkeeper to give the Wildcats a deserved 1-0 victory.
