WELLMAN - After a week without games due to poor weather conditions, the Mid-Prairie girls’ soccer team was anxious to return to the pitch last night. The night ended with the Golden Hawks claiming their fourth consecutive victory, 1 – 0.
The match’s only goal came 30 seconds into the second half. Anne Buckwalter made a strong tackle in the middle of the field and was able to expertly place the ball in the upper far corner of the net.
“Even though we started slow, I’m proud of the perseverance our team showed and how our intensity increased throughout the course of the game. Our young and new players stepped up a lot today. Kaitlin Kerkove had a great game for us in the midfield. Anne Buckwalter gave us a great finish in the final third and Renee Buckwalter helped us generate many dangerous offensive attacks. Our defensive unit anchored our team today,” Mid-Prairie head coach Maya Kehr Yoder said.
Mid-Prairie improves to 4 – 3 overall, 2 – 1 in River Valley Conference matches. The Golden Hawks are back in action Thursday, May 8, at Regina.
