Keystone 3, Kane 1

The Kane Lady Wolves soccer team traveled to Keystone for a Thursday afternoon contest against the Lady Panthers. The Lady Wolves fell behind a goal that was deflected inside the 18 yard box just seven minutes into the match. The Panthers extended their lead right before half on a beautiful long distance goal by senior captain Kelly Daugherty. Just five minutes into the second half Daugherty proved that her first goal was not a fluke as she scored on a shot that went in off the post. The Lady Wolves were able to cut the deficit to 3-1 as junior Alexis Lima-Lopez made a couple of defenders miss to score. Alexis Lima-Lopez, Kane’s most experienced defensive player, was moved to the offensive end of the field in the second half to try to give the offense a spark. Her versatility on the field is a major asset and will greatly assist the Wolves this season. The Lady Wolves were unable to generate any further goal scoring opportunities and suffered a 3-1 defeat. After the shaky start the defense really stepped up during a second half that featured an offensive mindset. Shannon Todd, Raejonna Pascarella, Alyssa Lima-Lopez, Brandi Wheatley, Danielle Tyger, and Courtney Peters played solid defense in the back. Unfortunately, the offense just had a difficult time putting together consistent scoring opportunities. Coach Mosier and Coach Johnson were impressed with the second half surge that the Lady Wolves put on. However, falling behind by three goals is something that very few teams overcome. Kane will have a chance to regain some momentum on Saturday afternoon at 2:00 as they travel to Elk County Catholic to take on a stingy Crusader team.
