Kickers blank Nepean


The Seaway Kickers hosted the Nepean City soccer team on a rainy Monday night and came out on top with a 3 – 0 win.  

The first goal of the game was setup by Lesley Anne Tupper. After some nifty moves, Tupper passed the ball to Kaitlyn Geurkink for the finish.  

The second goal was all Tupper who dangled and then went far side on the Nepean City keeper. while the third goal came off a strong left foot kick by Kaitlyn Geurkink.  

The shutout was earned by Kailyn Douglas and the score would have been much higher except for the play of the Nepean City keeper who was very strong in net. 

Nepean City had some very quick forwards but the Kickers’ defence, led by Abby Fawcett, Tracey Blokland, Emily VanVeen, Jennifer Smith and Megan Himes were up to the challenge and pretty much shut them down.  

The mid-fielders, led by Leah Wells, Kaitlyn Merkley, Jessica Hartle, Kelsey Douglas and Michaela Morrow made sure the forwards had the chances to move the ball and get some quality shots on net.  

The Kickers played last Monday, July 2 but details were not available at press time.
