The Lady Wildcats accepted a replacement game against South Dearborn. It was a highly contested match with a very quick speed of play. In the first half Franklin County struggled to stay composed and organized on the defensive half of the field allowing 2 earned goals and giving up a penalty kick goal to end the half.
With some adjustments to their defensive approach the Wildcats were able to shut out the Knights in the second half.
Sophomore Josie Rolfes played the first 63 minutes of the match between the pipes and picked up 12 saves. After an injury sidelined Rolfes, Senior Kalene Dean finished the GK role with a strong performance and 3 more saves on the night.
Junior Halee Barker led the Wildcats as the offensive threat with 3 SOG and had the best opportunities to score. Senior Regan Noble had two well struck direct kicks that were close but blocked by the Knight goalkeeper.
The Wildcats will travel to South Dearborn for a rematch with the Knights on Tuesday Sept 8th in the regular season matchup.
