WEST CATHOLIC: 0
It finally felt like spring when Allendale travelled to West Catholic for a conference matchup. The Falcons of Allendale were coming off a tough 2-3 loss against Spring Lake, and came out ready to get back to their winning ways. West Catholic came on early, pressuring from the first whistle. The opponents were the first to register a shot on goal, that Hadley Detter saved with ease. The Allendale Defense, led by Autumn Post, Jenna Gerakinis, Kristen Maycroft and Catherine Hildebrand wouldn't allow another shot on goal for the remainder of the game.
After a back and forth first couple of minutes, Allendale took control of the game, and 12 minutes into the game, Avery Terpstra received a beautiful cross from Halle Battjes on the far post, which she hammered home. 2 minutes later, Terpstra again recieved a pass, this time from Kennadi Fuller, which she slid past the opposing keeper, making the score 2-0, which held until halftime.
After halftime, Allendale kept pressure on the Falcons of West Catholic, and Fuller was able to connect with Terpstra again, earning Avery the "Hat-Trick" Later in the second half, Lauren Butterfield found Halle Battjes with a beautiful pass over the top, which Halle put in the back of the net, bringing the score to 4-0 in favor of Allendale. Other major contributors in the second half were Evelyn Aparicio-Bautista in the back line, who made sure Allendale would keep it's clean sheet, and Brooklyn Sweezer on the outside, creating options for the team.
The Falcons have a 4 game home-stand beginning this Monday against the River Rats of Black River. The game will kick off at 4pm at the Falcon Soccer Stadium.
