CONSTANTINE LADY FALCONS SOCCER
Monday April 19, 2021 Constantine took the trip to Saugatuck High School, All other Falcon sporting events were canceled due to weather conditions.
The Constantine girls started play strong and together kept the Trailblazers out of the back of the net for the first 29 minutes. The defensive shut down was led by senior Keeper Alyssa who canceled 11 attempts from Saugatuck [8 direct SOGs]. Saugatuck utilized their entire team in working the ball up the field, keeping possession 70% of the game. Constantine fought tooth and nail to make their touches count and they did. Even while only possessing the ball 28-29% of the first half we got 2 shots on goal and 4 solid attacking patterns the first half.
Going into the second half Saugatuck turned on the heat in the chilly 40o match. The first ten minutes were lax on both ends and then the Trailblazers broke down our defense and knocked in two well played balls within the first 10 minutes. That scoring run along with some unsolicited bantering from the opposition seemed to set the Falcons on their heels.
In positive notes we welcomed back 3-year player Autumn Herlein who stepped up into her role, also Kylie Roberts showed good footwork and was precise on 2 direct kicks as well as a shiner of a corner kick which combined for 5 attempts 3 on target. Grace Hofmeister pressured the Saugatuck d-line with her speed and all around tenacity, Hofmeister ended with a shot on goal on a lone take down the middle.
Erika Martinez, Leah Dumm, Emilee Miller, Lyta Williams and Alyssa Parmer must be recognized for their outstanding persistence.
Alyssa Parmer 18 saves, 6 allowed
Kylie Roberts & Grace Hofmeister combined for 6 attempts at the goal, 3 on target.
