The Lady Wildcats drove more than 90 minutes to take on the Pacers in Vevay Indiana. It was worth the drive as the Wildcats topped the Pacers 1-0. Franklin County was in control of the game and dominated play with possession and ball movement however the Pacers packed in the defensive end frustrating the Wildcats in the first half.
The pitch was much smaller that what the Wildcats have played on this season which led to a season high 115 throw-ins in a single game and a lot of turnovers. A combination of simple passing led to Jordan Nichols finding the feet of Grace Noble who slid the ball past the Pacer keeper to score the only goal of the game.
The offensive stats:
Jordan Nichols – 1 Assist (with 2 shots on goal)
Grace Nobe – 1 goal (with 6 total shots)
Jaime Stortz – 4 shots on goal and 4 corner kicks
The following players also had quality shots: Morgan Stewart, Brylee Pace, Kloe Bolos, Kamryn Dozier, Kylee Gibson.
