Girls Soccer: No place like home

Another WHHS girls home game affected by the weather

It’s been a tough season for home games for the Western Hills girls soccer team.

The Lady Wolverines had just three home matches scheduled after the Rotary Capital Classic. First came a date with Danville Sept. 5 (rained out), followed by Woodford County Sept. 17 (rained the whole game).

On Wednesday WHHS got to play 30 minutes of its Senior Night game before it was called because of lightning.

Western Hills and Anderson County had played to a scoreless tie when play was stopped on Sower 2.

“The first 30 minutes we played really hard,” WHHS coach Alisha Wildermuth said. “We had a pretty rough game Friday night (a 0-0 tie at Sayre).

“The team and both coaches had a very long talk about playing to the ability you’re given and never settling for anything less. I think it sunk in a little bit, and they played the way they needed to play.”

The Lady Wolverines were on the offensive attack for the majority of the 30 minutes but weren’t able to score a goal. MacKenzie Jones was in goal for WHHS.

Western Hills has three more matches left in the regular season, starting at Harrison County Monday.

In a ceremony prior to Tuesday’s game WHHS honored its five seniors – Kory Bradley, Kat Embry, Shelby Grammer, Kaitlyn Jackson and Caitlyn Moreland.
