The 2015 season started on a high note for the Sailors Women’s Soccer Team. Just 6 minutes into the game, Freshman Striker Kelly Petix was able to find the back of the net off a pass from Brooke Buchanan. Petix didn’t stop there, notching 1 more goal off of a darting run down the side and slot back by Junior Mackenzie Gansmann. Not to be outdone Jordie Floyd found the back of the net just two minutes later off a cracker from the right side of the 18 yard box, off a pass from Senior Eliza Leeson. Up 3-0 in the first 9 minutes, the Sailors hunkered down for the rest of the half and with the help of Junior Goalkeeper, Ocoee Wilson, were able to keep the score to 3-0 at half.
The Second half was entirely a different story. Glenwood Scaraped back and after 1 more unassisted Goal by sophomore Brooke Buchanan, the Sailors found themselves on their heals. the Demons were able to pull one goal back quickly to bring the game to 4-1. Senior Megan Williams joined the Sailors attack with 18 minutes left and was able to put home her first touch of the game to bring the game to 5-1. The Demons then went on a 3-0 run of their own, looping three goals over Wilson to pull within 1 with just 8 minutes left. A few frantic subs by the Sailors was enough to right the ship and keep the win in tacked for the first Game of the season.
