Linsly hangs on at Madonna
WEIRTON – The Linsly girls soccer team held a 2-0 lead over Weirton Madonna at halftime and held on for a 3-2 victory Tuesday at the J.C. Williams Complex.
“I thought for the first 15 minutes we came out with some aggression and speed, but we backed off quickly after they scored,” said Blue Dons (1-1) head coach Bob Kolanko. “We became tentative and not as aggressive.
“In the second half we played much more aggressively and put pressure on the ball.”
Kaitlin Snyder scored eight minutes in for the Cadets and Leah Memmo added one six minutes before halftime.
“Linsly has beaten us a number of the times the last couple of years and I think the girls went ‘Here we go again’ after they scored that first goal,” said Kolanko. “But, we were only down 2-0.”
Hannah Bargar found the back of the net off a Rachel Grubbs pass four minutes into the second half to put Madonna on the board.
Snyder made it 3-1 in the 66th minute and Gianna Antinone (from Bargar) closed the scoring in the 78th minute.
“We came back and lost, but the girls felt after the game that they can hang with a quality team like Linsly,” said Kolanko. “This game will get us ready for the next couple of games we have ahead of us.
“The girls believe they can compete with anybody.”
