Game Recap

The Dux varsity soccer team wasted little time setting the tone in their MHSAA district opener against Wyoming, winning by a score of 9-1. The Dux came out on fire, scoring on 3 of their first 6 shots, jumping out to an early 3-0 lead in the first 10 minutes. “I was pleased with how focused and determined we came out during the first 10 minutes. We moved the ball really well, and executed our game plan.” Sam Hecht opened the scoring for the Dux, after burying a beautifully crossed ball by Kayla Burrows, who beat her opponent to the end line. Mattie Busscher made it 2-0 in favor of the Dux, after intercepting a Wyoming pass and weaving through three defenders before sliding a shot under the arms of the diving keeper. Yulissa Rodriguez made it 3-0 after volleying Kylee Winn’s cross into the far side of the net.
The Dux continued to dominate the midfield, scoring 3 more goals over the next 20 minutes, to take a commanding 6-0 lead, before giving one back on a Wyoming penalty kick. Sam Hecht delivered a nice through ball to Busscher, for Busscher’s second goal of the match. Riley Farrell received a nice pass from the back, and turned to deliver a great ball to Kayla Burrows, resulting in Burrows’ first of two goals on the night. Lexi DeYoung scored her first of two goals off of another cross by Winn.
Wyoming converted its PK after one of the players was pushed inside the box. Celine Gonzalez’s shot to the left of Hannah Brouwer was well placed. “We were a little disappointed in giving up that PK, but we can learn from our mistakes as we move forward. We responded well by getting that goal back before halftime, making it 7-1 at the break.” Vanessa Kaseumsouk played a nice combination with Ashtyn Dykstra. Kaseumsouk’s initial shot was mishandled, and Dykstra buried the rebound.
The Dux ended the game by scoring 2 more goals in the first 20 minutes. Burrows scored her second goal of the game after cleaning up a rebound initially shot by Busscher. DeYoung’s lofted shot after a backpass from Dykstra ended the game.
The Dux will take on Byron Center on Thursday at 1:00pm, at Grand Rapids Christian High School
