Girls' soccer: Hornets blank Bulldogs

By Cort Reynolds
RAWSON - The Ada girls soccer team trailed by only a goal at halftime, but ended up losing 7-0 at Cory-Rawson Wednesday evening.

Ada fell to 2-7 overall and 1-2 in North Central Ohio Soccer Association action with the defeat. C-R improved to 6-4 overall and 2-1 in NCOSA play with the win.

Lanie Kempf scored the first goal 12:05 into the fray on an assist from Zoe Chisholm. 

The Lady Hornets then poured on a six-goal barrage in the second half to put the game out of reach.

Kempf scored her second goal 3:20 into the second half on a pass from Paige McVetta. McVetta then tallied at the 47:35 mark on a feed from Brynn Reese. McVetta scored again unassisted at the 63-minute juncture to extend the lead to 4-0.

Chisholm found the back of the net eight minutes later for a 5-0 bulge. Chisholm scored again on a pass from Kempf at the 74:47 mark. 

Reese netted the final goal with 3:12 remaining off an assist by Sophie Simon.

Kempf, Chisholm and McVetta each scored two goals and passed out one assist for the balanced Hornet attack. Reese added one goal and one assist.

Senior Chisholm broke the C-R program record for career points with her performance in the win.

"It was a disappointing performance," said Ada first-year head coach A.J. Wahlie. "Going into halftime, we knew we were going to have limited chances in the attacking third, but we had discussed how to manage that.

"In the second half, we weren't committed enough defensively after they scored their second goal," he continued. "We have to stand up and be resilient in tough moments."

The host Hornets put 23 shots on goal compared to two by Ada. C-R compiled 10 corner kicks to two by the Bulldogs. 

Bulldog junior keeper Olivia Green made 16 saves in goal. Evelyn Waltz made two stops for C-R.

Ada (0-3 NWC) hosts league-leading local rival Bluffton (5-0 NWC) Monday, Sept. 28. A win would give the Lady Pirates at least a share of the league crown.

"At practice, we will go back to the drawing board and continue to get better," Wahlie said.
