Kokomo girls fall to No. 2 Hamilton Southeastern

Royals advance to regional final after 6-0 victory over Kats.

(Continued)

Logansport —

Kokomo’s defense was able to lure HSE offsides several times, but when the Royals broke loose, they were dangerous. HSE scored two more goals in the first half, one on a delayed break and once in possession, for a 4-0 lead 21 minutes in. That margin held until deep into the second half.

“I couldn’t have asked anything more from these girls, they played their hearts out,” Geary said. “That’s what we’re going to walk away with happy about: We gave them everything we could. And we frustrated them quite a bit. I know our trap frustrated them. They weren’t able to get easy shots on goal, so that was good. That’s all I can ask of these girls.

“I felt like all in all we did a good job just containing their speed, keeping them forced to the outside. We fought hard, we fought real hard. We shouldn’t walk out of here being too upset because I thought we did a great job.”

Kokomo senior goalie Becca Wade had 10 saves and made a number of other plays outside her net.

The Kats had a few chances to score. Sophomore Michaela Wade forced a save in the first half with a long free kick, and freshman Aubrey Whiteman forced a save in the second half. The Kats’ best chance to score came from senior Spencer Wesche, who collided with Hamilton Southeastern’s backup goalie while tracking a ball in the second half. Wesche was able to put the ball on frame but a Royal defender cleared the danger.

The Wildkats finish the season 13-6-1.

“This has been such a great year,” Geary said. “We made a complete 180 from the beginning of the season to the end. I’m just happy I got to coach these girls this year. I’ve enjoyed it a ton.

“I’m going to miss [the senior class] dearly. My four years with these girls has been incredible.”
