Wayland-Cohocton 5 Wellsville O
The Wayland-Cohocton girls soccer squad improved their record to 6-0 with a 5-0 whitewash of visiting Wellsville on Monday night (Sept. 14) at the Elsie Tripp Sports Complex in Cohocton. Golden Eagles coach Terry Brown stated, ” I know Wellsville is kind of young & inexperienced, but my greatest concern was our team playing down to their level. I guess I shouldn’t complain about being 6-0, but there are always things you can improve on. Establishing this consistency for all 80 minutes in one of the things we’re always working on.”
It certainly didn’t take long for the Golden Eagles to get on the board. In the first minute of play Way-Coh’s Ashley Page fired a quick shot off on the keeper. Erin Lawson made the save as she deflected it away, but Jessie Hammers was standing on the doorstep & fired it right back in to give the maroon & gold a “very quick” 1-0 lead. The next goal did not come quite as easily as the Lady Lions tightened things up on “D”. Wayland-Cohocton finally broke through again, & broke through often. The Eagles would score 3 times in the final 5 minutes of the first half ! Maddie Lewis made one of her “mad dash runs” up the field & took the ball into the box beating both her defenders & then the goalkeeper making it a 2-0 game in the 36th minute of play. Just one minute later Carrigan Miceli also scored an unassisted goal. Then in the 39th minute Maggie McAllister would score unassisted turning a previously close contest into a 4-O game. Wayland-Cohocton’s youth movement completed the scoring as 8th grader Ayslinn Holbrook scored from Maddie Lewis in the 48th minute to complete the 5-0 victory at home for the Golden Eagles.
Way-Coh (6-O) put 43 shots on goal in the game as Eagles keeper Ashlee Schumacher registered the shutout without registering a save. Erin Lawson had 29 saves in net for Wellsville (0-5). Wayland-Cohocton visits rival Dansville on Wednesday (Sept. 16) night in a 4:30pm contest.
