JV Kangs vs. Juanita Rebels
In the second meet up between these two cross-town rivals the LW Kangs dominated early and never let up putting a solid 4-0 beat down on the Juanita Rebels. All four goals came in the first half. The first one was 3 minutes in on a pass from Maret Helgeson to yup, you guessed it, the prolific scorer Lexi “ L J” Johnson!
Because it was honor the Juniors Night at the JV game, Maret Helgeson decided to show why we love our juniors so much and scores on a pass from Molly McLaughlin which the Juanita goalie bobbled and ended up in the back of the net.
Hannah Molhot (also a Junior), rehabbing from her broken leg, gets into the action with a solid pass to Lexi Enstrom who sends a shot sailing through the air and into the Juanita Goal. (Her Dad will be so proud that she actually took the shot!!!).
Meanwhile, goal keeper Shelby Frankel has absolutely nothing to do in goal and starts working on her Christmas list.
Tired of all the Juniors putting on a show, Freshman Ashlyn Schoen shows what the newbies can do. With a beautiful pass out of the back, up over top of the midfield, she places it right in the perfect spot for speedster L J to run on to and score with her breakaway speed for Goal #4!
With 5 minutes left in the half, Coach Masters makes a gutsy substitution and puts #21 Cassady Barnes in. Huh? Who? That’s right, goal keeper Cassady Barnes takes the field. First touch on the ball, she gets dumped, but hey, she’s a goalkeeper she’s used to diving and rolling around for the ball! After that she finds her field legs and helps the Kangs keep the Rebels at bay to end the half.
OK, second half starts back with a sense of normalcy as Cassady Barnes is back between the posts in goal. Carlee Betterman who has been working her magic all game, drills a Juanita player with a shot and sends her to the ground, knocking the wind out of her. Warning to Rebels defense, you don’t want to get too close to Carlee’s shots.
Molly McLaughlin, the Freshman phenom, who hits shots from distances that only football kickers usually nail, takes one of her classic 30 yard free kicks and it nearly goes in, but the Juanita keeper somehow manages to keep her gloves on the ball.
Emree Burkhalter who quietly just goes about her job keeping things safe in the back, gets a bee in her bonnet and goes streaking down the right side of the field and gets a shot off that’s just wide. Again, secret weapon #21 is substituted into the game and this time it’s Shelby Frankel!!!
Free from the confines of her goal box, Shelby is running free up and down the field screaming with glee. At this point, game is fairly locked down. The Kangs are eating up the Juanita defense, peppering them with shots and working hard to earn lots of corner kicks.
But just to make sure the Rebels don’t stage some kind of freakish comeback in the last two minutes of the game, Coach Masters in a stroke of coaching genius, makes her most gutsy substitution of the year.
Into the game is the injured reserve list…Captains Sydney Anderson & Aly Madgett, and Junior Lindsay Bailey. Rebels don’t know what to do and just curl up on the field. Game whistle blows and the 2014 JV Kangs run victorious (and uninjured) off the field!!!!!!!
Great season ladies!
Final Score: Kangs 4, Juanita Rebels 0!!!
