WSOC | Kodiaks battle to scoreless draw with MHC

Recap written with files from Medicine Hat College sports information

Oct. 1, 2019 – Looking to solidify their position in the ACAC south division, the Lethbridge College Kodiaks women’s soccer team picked up a valuable road point against a pesky Medicine Hat College Rattlers side on Saturday.

Battling cloudy and crisp conditions that hovered around freezing, the visitors were able to control the game early, controlling the ball and the play in the midfield. Medicine Hat struggled to generate offensive chances, with Lethbridge defender Lauren Gray snuffing out multiple scoring attempts from Rattler strikers.

Despite eight Kodiaks shots in the first half, Rattlers keeper Amanda Overing kept the home side in the game to keep the score nil-nil at the break.  

The second half started much like the first, with the Kodiaks controlling large swaths of play. The Kodiaks technical skill led to a few quality chances, but once again Overing stood her ground and kept the ball out of the Rattler’s net.

Snow started to fly during the later stages of the half, and the teams seemed to become tentative, afraid of making a mistake. Kodiaks keeper Micaela Stone made one of her three saves late in the game to preserve the point, as they game finally concluded nil-nil.

The ACAC Players of the Game were Jasmin Salmon for the Kodiaks and Jadyn Fode for MHC.
