On Monday June 18th the Seaway Kickers U18 girl’s soccer team hosted the Nepean Hotspurs.
It was the Hotspurs who had handed the Kickers their only loss of the season in an early match and Seaway was looking for a big win. And it was a big win they got, by a 4-0 count.
Ashley Smith got it rolling when she picked up a rebound off a save by the Nepean keeper. Smith made a good pass to Sarah Gudlaugsson who scored into the open net.
After a good defensive play, Leah Wells passed the ball through to Kaitlyn Geurkink who scored bottom left corner.
The third goal was a great individual effort by Kaitlyn Geurkink, who had a nice run up the left side and surprised the Nepean keeper with a strong left foot shot.
Mid-fielder Kaitlyn Merkley had a nice pass and setup for Jessica Hartle, but she just couldn’t finish.
The final goal of the game came off a Nepean goal kick which was intercepted by Lesley-Ann Tupper who dangled around the defence and scored through the keeper’s legs.
The Kickers had very nice passes and controlled the ball well. Emily Vanveen was strong on the free kicks, and Keepers Jade Millward and Kailyn Douglas earned the shutout.
Next game is June 25th, at 6:30 p.m. in Iroquois at Seaway High School.
