Rebel girls beat Wildcats in OT
TOWNSHEND >> Ashley Bates scored with three minutes left in overtime, assisted by her sister Arin, to give the Leland & Gray varsity girls soccer team a 4-3 victory over Twin Valley on Wednesday.
"Leland & Gray controlled play and took us out of our game...holding possession and moving the ball. We began to chase and this wore us down in the end. Twin Valley hung tough and battled all game," said Wildcats coach Chris Walling.
Rachel Borgesen tallied twice for the winners, while Jessie Stockwell and Bates each scored once. Caitlin Hunt had a couple of goals and Karlee Walkoviak put one between the posts for the visitors, which got assists from Tayler Courchesne and Kassidy Walkowiak.
"Counterattacks and through balls from midfield that utilized Caitlin's speed and Karlee's speed up front were successful for us and how we scored our goals," noted Walling, whose team came back from deficits of 2-0 and 3-2 to pull even.
PROCTOR >> Leland & Gray tied Proctor 2-2 on Tuesday.
The hosts raced out to a 2-0 lead before the Rebels fought back. Pat McDonald scored both of Leland & Gray's goals. Gaige Astley and Luc Dugrenier combined for five saves, while Willie Bush and Caleb Thibault had outstanding games.
