The Zeeland West girls JV soccer team lost on the road to a tough Holland team 0-3. “Regardless of the score last night, the girls played the game the right way and I was very pleased with the effort all night.” “The first time we played Holland they dominated every aspect of the game and we struggled to compete. But last night we possessed the ball very well, connected on a number of one touch passing combinations and our defense caught Holland off sides several times.” Holland deserves a lot of credit as they are a very fast and physical team and were able to break through a stout defense a few times.
Congratulations to Raegina Pung, Callie Dobrinski, Andrea Valdes and Taylor Twork for being called up to varsity for the state tournament run. Please continue to support these young ladies and our varisty squad as they seek to win a district title, and much more! Hope to see you all Tuesday at Zeeland East for our first district game at 3:30.
The girls JV soccer team earned a draw with Hamilton, 1-1, in their last home game of the year. Once again the girls really controlled possession of the ball for the majority of the game but still found themselves down 0-1 at the half. “I’ve said all year long that defense is so tough because if you make one mistake it could cost a goal, and last night that is what happened.” But overall the defense played very well and limited the Hawkeyes scoring chances. The Dux we able to even the score mid-way through the second half when Callie Dobrinksi beat two defenders and ripped a shot from about 25 yards out that slipped in underneath the bar. “We ask lot of Callie when it comes to both defending and distributing the ball but we need her to shoot more often, and last night she handled all of those expectations very well.” West will travel to Holland for their final game of the season on Wednesday evening.
