WATERVLIET HIGH SCHOOL VARSITY SOCCER Varsity Soccer beats Coloma 3 - 0 to make it 3 away wins in row Monday, April 15, 2024 6:00 PM Watervliet High School @ Coloma High School AWAY HOME 3 0 Game Recap Lady Panthers went away to Coloma on a beautiful Monday afternoon and once again came out victorious to make it three away wins in a row. The first-half was tightly contested and we missed to convert on several opportunities in front of goal. Heading into halftime 0-0. Despite the goalless first-half, the team picked up the momentum and started creating more chances in front of goal. In the 56th min, Courtney Van Lente broke the deadlock when she swiftly got passed three Coloma defenders who in spite of fouling her on the way to goal were no match for her strength as she put her shot right past the goalie to make 1-0. Minutes later, Riley Preston gave a wonderful assist to Courtney, who once again found the back of the net with a left-footed shot. In the 67th minute, Alyssa Brown sealed the victory with impeccable right-footed shot via a Courtney pass that made it 3-0. The defense composed of Anslie Saylor, Alexis Hoadley and Morgan Lowell played a big part in keeping the shots on goal to a minimum and helping Chelsea Lange obtain her second clean-sheet of the season. Come out and support as we take on Schoolcraft this Friday at 5pm.
