Hornets Even with Wildcats

The Hornets took to I-89 for their final game on a four match road trip. The road trip has seen the Hornets take to the field in 3 straight games under the lights of opponent territory so the road warriors were in somewhat familiar territory. Regardless, the game kicked off between the two Lakes Region foes. 

Proctor got out to an early offensive press and found some half chances in the final third but the Wildcat defense did well to mitigate the threats. The Hornets maintained possession by enjoying an advantage through midfield but didn't quite have an answer. In the final minutes of the first half, the Hornets had their best opportunity of the game when Lily Menard ('22) served a dangerous ball behind the back line from a set piece that found Brynne Makechnie ('22) on the back post but the Wildcat net minder made a top class save to preserve the tie. 

The second half followed in similar fashion as the game spent large portions in the center of midfield. Neither team was able to get a clear hold on the momentum as the possession changed hands in the middle of the park where Ang Arcidi ('22) led the charge alongside Cassidy Joslin ('22). The Hornets had a couple chances go begging as they continued to apply some pressure but nothing really stuck. The back line of Lola Randolph ('23), Sasha Mackenzie ('22), Eliza Lewis ('23), Lily Menard ('22), and Ingrid Pekala ('23) limited KUA to outside shots and a few corner kicks which Vic Morales ('22) managed with relative ease to earn her 4th shutout in 5 games. The match ended with both teams keeping a clean sheet. 

The game was mostly even with the Hornets mustering a couple more dangerous chances but neither team was able to settle the ball completely. As we wrap up a challenging series of games on the road, the Hornets are glad to have some home fixtures on the horizon. The team is hopeful that a little home cooking will give them just what they need to settle into the middle stretch of the season.

Ahead of us is a good string of competitive matches, which should make for a great few games for the Hornets to battle alongside each other as we strive to get stronger, faster, and sharper every day. Each game is giving us new questions so we can get to training to seek the answers. As a squad, the Hornets remain hungry to get to the next match.
