CONVOY- The Crestview Lady Knights welcomed cross-county rivals, the Lincolnview Lady Lancers, to Crestview High School on Monday night for Northwest Conference girls soccer action. Lincolnview got multiple goals in each half to get the 9-0 win.
Lincolnview won a corner kick in the third minute and the Lady Lancers turned that into a Hannah McCleery shot on goal but the shot went wide.
The Lady Lancers continued to press the Lady Knights defense in the first ten minutes of the match. Lincolnview got awarded a free kick at the top of the penalty box at the ten minute mark. McCleery took the kick for the Lady Lancers and went for goal but her try was to0 strong and the ball sailed over the post.
McCleery finally got reward for her efforts as a slow running shot made its way to the back of the net, beating Lady Knights keeper Kenzi Case in the 12th minute, 1-0 Lincolnview.
Crestview looked to even up the game in the 17th minute as Kylee Agler tried to link up with Abby Clouser, but Julia Thatcher, the Lincolnview keeper, was able to collect the pass before it reached its intended target.
Thatcher, in the 23rd minute, having been switched out of the goalie spot, hit a low shot that beat Case to the far left post to increase the Lady Lancers lead to 2-0.
Lincolnview added three goals from McCleery in the final ten minutes of the first half as McCleery scored in the 30th, 35th, and 38th minute to bring the first half score to 5-0, Lady Lancers.
The Lady Lancers opened the second half with another goal as McCleery crossed it to Autumn Proctor who brought the ball down and passed it to Brooke Schroeder. Schroeder then connected for the sixth goal of the match for Lincolnview in the 42th minute.
The Lady Lancers then got goals from Maddie Gorman and Proctor in the 50th and 56th minutes bring the score to 8-0, Lincolnview.
The Lady Knights got their attack working in the 57th minute, as Siera Wood got a shot on goal that was saved by Lady Lancer keeper Julia Thatcher.
Crestview got good opportunities from Bekka Tracey and Kylee Gent, both got shots on goal but neither were able to find the back of the net.
The Lady Lancers capped the scoring with a 64th minute goal from Schroeder to bring the score to 9-0.
“We need to do a lot better commutating and we are just trying to figure out what position work best for our players and trying to get them to understand what is going on. We have seven new players who have never played soccer so we are trying to teach them the game. We are moving them around trying to get them to understand this game of soccer,” said Crestview coach Joy Short.
“Thought we played really well and I thought we passed the well. Our defense was able to get their foot on the ball for some long passes, which is good because we haven’t been able to do that all year. We gave the younger kids a lot of playing time, and they did what they were supposed to do. So I think that this will be a big momentum builder and a big building block for the future,” added Lincolnview Mark McCleery.
The Lady Knights drop to 0-3 on the year and 0-1 in the NWC. Lincolnview improves to 1-1-1 on the season and is now 1-0 in the NWC.
