U18 Kickers split games


On Monday July 16th the Seaway Kickers U18 girls team travelled to D.A. Moodie park where they gave up a 3-1 loss to the Nepean City soccer club.  

The Kickers started out very slow and were losing 2 – 0 after the first half.  

They got on board in the second half with a nice pass from Bailey Hass to the top of the box where Kelsey Douglas scored in the bottom left corner but Nepean City charged back to make it 3 – 1.  

Sara Gudlaugsson, for Seaway, had a penalty shot but the keeper made the save to maintain the Nepean two-goal edge. 

Ashley Smith drew a penalty shot and Leah Wells took the shot to score what would be the Kickers final goal of the game.  

In the last minute of the game, the Kickers pull everyone into the attacking zone but they could not score the tying goal and were forced to settle for the 3-2 loss.  

Wednesday, July 18th, the Seaway Kickers were home to the Nepean Hotspurs, and after a very slow start they found themselves once again down 2 – 0.  

In the second half the girls picked up the pace and some of them spread the field which led to a goal by Lesley Anne Tupper in an individual effort.  

The Kickers tied the game, 2-2, on a goal that started from a very nice corner kick play between Michaela Morrow and Kaitlyn Geurkink and resulted with a nice finish by Ashley Smith.  

The Kickers took a 3-2 lead on a beautifully timed rush by defender Leah Wells, and put it away off a very strong corner kick by Michaela Morrow with a header by Sarah Gudlaugsson.

To date the Kickers season record is six wins and three losses
