The West Hants Senior Women’s soccer team is still valiantly seeking their first win of the season after suffering a 6-0 loss to East Kings McGill at the King’s-Edgehill field in Windsor June 30.
They currently have a record of 0-5-1.
During the Monday night bout in Windsor, East Kings badly outshot the hometown team.
However, despite allowing the six goals, Ashley States played a pivotal role in nets for West Hants and kept the score from climbing too high.
East Kings was blessed with at least three corner kicks early in the first half, of which States grabbed one off of a deflection.
East Kings controlled play for a majority of the first half and kept States on her feet at all times.
Credit must be given to States as she stopped many direct shots and then let some booming kicks go into the East Kings end, only to have little done with them once they arrived.
East Kings scored the first of their six goals on a soft deflection 15 minutes into the first half. Less than three minutes later, it was 2-0 as an East Kings kick sailed over the goalie’s head.
States made her best save of the night late in the first half when four East Kings players drove to the net only to see the West Hants netminder make a spectacular last minute foot save.
West Hants tried to generate offense but to no avail as East Kings players were well positioned to move with the ball at any given time.
West Hants’ best play of the first half was when Holly Smith demonstrated excellent ball control, scurrying down about three quarters of the length of the field and making a nice pass in front of the East Kings net.
Early in the second half, East Kings started strong and just minutes in, scored on an exceptionally strong kick to make it 4-0.
It was 5-0 when the visiting team scored somewhat of a lucky goal as it barely slid over the goal line. The final was 6-0.
West Hants is slated to be back in action tonight, July 7, against the Local 56 team at 7 p.m.
They are at home again on Monday, July 14 against Greenwood, a team with a present record of 4-1-1. Game time is 7 p.m.
