Soccer team earns first win
Green Bay West 2, Clintonville 1
The Truckers' first game was a very competitive match with Green Bay West. Sophomore Goalie Sarah Tourville kept Clintonville close, recording 13 saves. Forward Katie Collier converted a penalty kick into the Trucker's only goal of the game; which ended 2-1 in favor of Green Bay.
Clintonville 1, Iron Mountain 0
The second contest saw the Lady Truckers play the Mountaineers from Iron Mountain Michigan. The Truckers level of play improved during the game, and the score at half-time was 0-0.
The Truckers continued their staunch defense in the second half, and Tourville's keeper play was outstanding. With 6 minutes left in the game, Katie Collier's crossing pass found Senior Paige Lehman in front of the Iron Mountain net. Lehman beat the Mountaineer goalie, and put Clintonville ahead 1-0.
The last couple of minutes were quite physical, as the Iron Mountain squad tried to tie the score. Unfortunately for Clintonville, the rough play cost them the services of their keeper. While Tourville was on the ground making her 10th save, the Mountaineer forward continued to kick at the ball; and Tourville suffered a broken finger during the non-penalized exchange. Fortunately, Clintonville hung on to the 1 goal lead, and notched their second victory of the season.
Shawano 2, Clintonville 0
Saturday's final game was against Shawano. Clintonville had already played the Hawks, and Shawano had won the first match in convincing style.
Saturday's game saw the Truckers maintain their intensity on defense, and moved the ball better on offense. Shawano eventually scored two goals, and won 2-0.
"Our game against Green Bay West was a disaster. There wasn't much that we did right. I didn't coach well, and the girls didn't play well," said Coach Roger Lupien. "The next two games were so much different, and better, that there was very little to critique. It's a shame that we have lost Sarah Tourville as a goalie. Her abilities and approach are just what you need in the position. Her loss will change our entire defensive alignment. Hopefully, she can get back on the field soon. I was encouraged by the play of Kelsey Raasch and Laken Wait."
