The U18 girls had two winning soccer games this week, and coach Shelley Davis-Hall is “absolutely” happy with how the team has been playing so far this season.
The U18 girls played Wetaskiwin on Wednesday, May 14, and won with a score of 1-0.
Davis-Hall said that while Wetaskiwin played well, Stettler did not play up to par. The only goal of the game was scored by Jayden Doucette. However, Davis-Hall expects the team to improve.
“It’s just team building, that’s all,” she said. “It’s just working out all the little kinks.”
On Monday, May 19, the girls played Rimbey and won with a score of 4-0, and Davis-Hall was very happy with how the girls played.
Melanie Verhoeven and Niky Lachowsky scored one goal each, while Breanna Davis-Hall scored two.
“Melanie Verhoeven and Grace Chapman were the players of the game,” Davis-Hall said.
She added that the girls are improving as the season goes on, but are still figuring out how to work together to be the best team they can be.
“They’re all just trying to find a gel to work together,” she said. “It is getting better, definitely getting better every time. But last night (against Rimbey), they were exceptional.”
