PARIS – The Western Hills Lady Wolverines soccer team traveled to Bourbon County Wednesday night and got back in the win column with a 4-3 victory.
WHHS was focused on getting back on track after coming off a loss to Madison Central last week.
“We talked before the game about this game being one of our more difficult games,” WHHS Head Coach Alisha Wildermuth said.
Bourbon County got on the board first and went up 2-0 but WHHS didn’t back down and started its comeback with a score from Harper Jones, assisted by Carson Cline.
Shortly after that goal, Hayley Greenwell, assisted by Harper Jones, followed with WHHS’ second goal to tie the game 2-2.
WHHS came out strong in the second half and took control of the game.
Greenwell scored her second goal three minutes into the half, with an assist from Kolby Richardson and put WHHS up 3-2.
The game stayed on the Bourbon County end of the field for most of the half and WHHS’ defense had a solid game.
Bourbon County did score one more time in the game from a long ball just over goalie MacKenzie Jones’ hands.
Harper Jones added the winning goal, assisted by Greenwell, and that put WHHS up for good and made it a final score of 4-3 for the Lady Wolverines.
“The girls did a great job individually focusing on what they needed to do in order for the team to succeed; that’s what we saw on the field tonight,” Wildermuth said. “I was extremely proud of not only their play, but also their resiliency.”
Kat Embry was in goal for the first half for WHHS and MacKenzie Jones played the second half.
WHHS will host Danville Wednesday.
