Prep roundup, Sept. 18

Taylor, Eastern also post golf wins.

(Continued)

Wildkat coach Kevin Duggins said he’s trying to get the Kats to possess the ball better and was glad to see improvement on that front throughout the game. In addition, he said Taylor Sparling sparked the offense.

“We’ve been pushing on Taylor,” he said. “She’s played such a good defensive center mid position. But she hasn’t really gone aggressively when she’s upfield, attacking the goal, and she did [Tuesday]. We’re pushing our girls to beat a player, beat a player. Taylor had an awesome game setting up drives to keep it up field. When she did that you see the difference in our offense.”

EASTERN 5, OAK HILL 0

Savannah Rees and Elena White each had two goals and Sam Ward added a netter as the Comets won on the field of their Grant County rival. Rees dished out two assists and Ward and Mikaela Malott each had one. Brooke Stout had five saves for Eastern, which improved to 8-1.

“On defense, Ciara Harden and Brittany Miller both played well,” Eastern coach Chris Rees said. “We’ve been working on the girls to play more of a posession-type ball. We didn’t do that well in the first half, but Elena White scored twice in the second half and both came off crosses. I was pleased that our offense in the second half really started clicking well with that.”

EASTBROOK 4, TAYLOR 0

Lydia Owens had 20 saves for the Titans who fell on the road.

“They’re typically a really good passing team and pretty well coached, just a good team all around,” Taylor coach John Piotrowicz said of Eastbrook. “We actually were beat 7-1 last year against them so we improved, but a little bit of a disappointing night because we really didn’t play to our potential.”
