WAYLAND UNION HIGH SCHOOL: 0
After a long bus ride down to Wayland, the Allendale Falcons kicked off against the Wildcats of Wayland Union. The high wind was a factor early on, with a field perched on top of a hill, every gust of wind felt difficult to stand against. After a slow start, and adjusting for the wind, striker Kennedi Fuller was able to slot the ball towards the near post after taking a deflection of a shot by Lauren Butterfield. It was Lauren's 7th Assist of the season. Rehema Sango took a ball on the run from Samantha Van Huizen not much later to give the falcons a 2-0 lead at half time. The defensive line, under the leadership of consistant center back Reese Buhlman remained stout throughout the first half, not allowing a shot on goal.
In the second half, the Falcons were much more agressive, pressuring Wayland Union into difficult passes, and moving the ball more effectively than in the first half. Fuller added to her total by finding the back of the net off a pass from Hildebrand into the open space on the sideline. Hadley Detter and the Defensive line earned the clean sheet with one save in the second half, leading to a final score of 3-0 in favor of the Falcons.
The team heads into a huge set of games next week, as they play three games against a number of quality opponents. The falcons will be looking to build on their early season success. The next time they take the pitch will be Monday at 5:00pm against Grand Rapids Catholic Central
