The Lady Hawks celebrated the accomplishments of their seniors before taking on the Windsor Owls. In a tough 7-0 match, the Hawks were able to play a competitive game and come away with some new things to improve on, as well as some new memories to cherish.
“My favorite part was getting to play with all the Seniors as a whole,” Gracie Schmitt said. “We’ve never gotten to do that this season and it was really exciting! All of us played so well.”
The first half started out rocky as the defense struggled to fend off the Owls, who scored in the seventh, 19th, 31st and 37th minutes.
Inn the second half the Hawks picked up the pace, holding off most of Windsor’s attacks. The Owls would only add three goals to their tally in the 42nd, 45th and 52nd minutes. Despite the troubles, Head Coach Sam Nansel was still pleased at the team’s continued determination.
“We started playing better towards the end of the game, but coming back from a 4-0 half time score is a tough mountain to climb,” Nansel said. “We really appreciate the seniors for their hard work and hope to have a little bit more success for them on the back end of our schedule.”
Baylei Clubb played in goal all 80 minutes and saved 14 of the 21 shots taken on goal. The Hawks had two shots on goal of their own.
The Hawks now prepare to face off against the Northwest Lions on April 27th. Game starts at 6:30 p.m.
