Lady Dragons hold on for 5-4 sectional tournament win over Fairfield

first_img By Mark Carpenter-It may have only been their fourth win of the season, but the improvement from the beginning of the season until now is quite evident for Coach Kevin Hunter and his West Union Lady Dragons girls soccer squad. On Saturday, Oct. 12 the Lady Dragons played host to a fellow member of the Southern Hills Athletic Conference, the Fairfield Lady Lions in a first round Southeast District Division III sectional tournament match up.In their regular season meeting, the Lady Lions pulled off an 11-6 victory, but Saturday’s tournament contest played out quite differently. The Lady Dragons, behind some offensive heroics from Mackenzie Silvia, raced to a 4-1 halftime advantage and then withstood a late Fairfield rally that went right down to the final shot of the game before escaping with a 5-4 victory over the visiting Lady Lions.The scoring started early for West Union, as less than a minute into the game after a nice save on the defensive end by keeper Jaisyra White, Silvia, known as “Wheels” to her coaches and teammates, scored her first goal of the day just 39 seconds in and then six minutes later repeated the performance from nearly the same spot on the field to give the Lady Dragons a 2-0 lead.At the 23:49 mark of the first half, West Union extended the lead to three goals with a little help from their opponent. After a scramble in front of the West Union goal, the ball was accidentally kicked into the net by a Fairfield defender, making it 3-0 in favor of the home team. With 14:06 to play in the first half, the Lady Lions finally got on the board when they perfectly executed a header into the net off a corner kick to cut their deficit to 3-1, but six minutes later the Lady Dragons lit the scoreboard again.With 8:53 until intermission, Fairfield was called for a foul in the box and Silvia made it a first half hat trick when she blasted the ensuing penalty kick over the Lady Lions’ keeper and into the top of the net and the home team went to halftime with a 4-1 advantage in their pocket.The game became a defensive struggle through the first third of the second half with the best scoring opportunity coming on a breakaway by West Union’s Alexis Mason that was stopped by the Fairfield keeper. With 26:34 left in the game, Silvia made it the hat trick plus one when she fired a shot from the right side that glanced off the keeper’s hands, straight up in the air, and then right back down into the net to make it 5-1 West Union.That was the final score of the game for the home team as they spent the final 15 minutes holding off a fierce Fairfield rally that began at the 14:42 mark. White came out of the goal to challenge an onrushing Lady Lion, only to see the ball slip away and Fairfield boot it into the open net to make it. The Lady Lions then got a pair of goals in the final six minutes, both coming off penalty kicks after the Lady Dragons were called for infractions in the box.That made it 5-4 and set up a very intense final two minutes of action. With 20 seconds to go, a shot by the Lady Lions went just wide of the net and then on the final play of the game, White made a leaping save and just by inches landed outside the goal line to preserve the fourth win of the season for West Union.“That last half was crazy,” said Coach Hunter. “I didn’t think we were getting tired but I think they put a lot more offensive pressure on us. Obviously, ‘Wheels’ getting that goal early and then continuing to score was huge for us.”“Jaisyra does a great job for us in goal and she is only a junior so she will be back.”The now 4-11-2 Lady Dragons moved into the sectional semi-finals where they traveled to North Adams on Monday, Oct. 14 for a sectional semi-final contest with the number one seeded Lady Devils. (The result of that match up was not available at press time.)“Our girls are just glad to be playing another game,” said Hunter. “When you are trying to build a program, a tournament win is always a good thing.”West Union’s Casey Biggs, left, battles for a possession during the Lady Dragons’ sectional tournament win over Fairfield on Oct. 12.

Mooy ran the game from midfield at the Amex and made Eric Dier look foolish at times 13 Like Ryan, Dunk was quietly composed and decisive against Spurs. His distribution from the back and strength in his tackles was superb.On this sort of performance, it is hard to see Gareth Southgate not recalling him to the England squad.Centre-Back: David Luiz (Arsenal) After disappointing spells at Aston Villa and Middlesbrough, Traore is finally adding consistency and end product.One of the fastest players in the division and with a La Masia education to boot, fans have waited for the winger to arrive.Nuno’s decision to move him into a wing-back role has proved pivotal to his form and he took his goals against City extremely well.Central Midfield: Matty Longstaff (Newcastle United) 13 13 Wolves had only won once in the Premier League prior to Sunday’s clash at the Etihad and a strong defensive rearguard is always necessary at the home of the champions.Boly scored the winner against Besiktas in the Europa League on Thursday and dominated once again in Manchester.His physical presence at the back was vital for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side to claim a famous win.Centre-Back: Lewis Dunk (Brighton and Hove Albion) Longstaff fulfilled a lifelong dream by scoring on his Premier League debut for Newcastle Man United fan says Red Devils MUST hire Roy Keane as managerGoalkeeper: Mathew Ryan (Brighton and Hove Albion) 13 Luiz netted his first goal for Arsenal since leaving Chelsea Getty Images – Getty Much like the aforementioned Longstaff, Connolly had a memorable weekend as his two goals helped sink Champions League finalists Tottenham on Saturday.The Republic of Ireland youth international was a thorn in the sides of Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld, making the latter look rather foollish for his second.His confidence and direct play will terrify defenders and his ovation when he was substituted was richly deserved.How talkSPORT’s Premier League Team of the Weekend looks Although the Brazil international is prone to making errors, he is a fine player when it comes off for him.Tasked with facing a pacy and in-form Callum Wilson, Luiz handled the England international perfectly.He also managed to score the crucial winning goal, something Unai Emery will hope can become a regular occurrence.Right Wing-back: Adama Traore (Wolverhampton Wanderers) Tammy Abraham continued his fine form at Southampton with a clinical finish to get Chelsea off the mark at St Mary’s.Although it needed goal line technology to confirm the ball had crossed the line, his instinctive finish over Angus Gunn was superb.He also helped set up fellow England new boy Mason Mount shortly after, showing there is more to his game than just goals.Striker: Aaron Connolly (Brighton and Hove Albion) Getty Images – Getty Boly was dominant in the air and kept City’s dangerous attackers quiet The England striker justified his call up with a clinical performance on the south coast Ryan kept Harry Kane and co. at bay at the Amex AFP or licensors Getty Images – Getty Getty Images – Getty Getty Images – Getty Getty Images – Getty All things considered, Longstaff had quite an eventful weekend.The 19-year-old made his Premier League debut and scored the winner against Manchester United in front of the Gallogate End.But his performance was not simply limited to just one goal, the midfielder also managed to control the centre of the park for the Magpies as they recovered from the 5-0 hammering at the Leicester City.Alongside brother Sean, the younger sibling will be hoping to start every week at this rate.Central Midfield: Jack Grealish (Aston Villa) 13 Gameweek 8 of this enthralling Premier League season proved to be one of the most exciting in recent memory.Liverpool moved eight points clear at the top of the table after Wolves were able to claim all three points at the home of champions Manchester City.Brighton and Newcastle United picked up impressive home wins over Tottenham and Manchester United respectively, while Crystal Palace and Burnley continued their strong early season form. Although Spurs were far from their best on Saturday afternoon, the visitors still managed to create plenty of chances.However, time and time again they were rebuffed by the Australia international at the Amex.His save from Lucas Moura in the second half was a particular highlight, with the Seagulls then adding a third goal shortly after to make the result all the more emphatic.Centre-Back: Willy Boly (Wolves) Liverpool are flying high and are eight points clear of Manchester City 13last_img read more
