The Warriorette soccer team joined right into the homecoming week of activities and did their part picking up a 4-1 win over Livingston Academy.
Getting their chance to play in front of a packed home side of the stadium, the Warriorettes made good use of the opportunity. The game was played in front of the WCHS student body on Tuesday.
Fred Demers, the leading scorer this year for WCHS, opened the game’s scoring in the 15th minute of the contest giving the Warriorettes the early 1-0 advantge. Autumn Ferree found the back of the net in the 29th minute pushing the lead to 2-0.
Ferree’s second goal of the game pushed the Warriorette lead to 3-0 just before the end of the first half.
Demers pushed in her second goal of the contest with 32 minutes remaining in the game off the assist from Kaitlyn Heath. It was Heath’s second assist of the contest.
Livingston ended the chance for another Warriorette shut out when they found the back of the net with 15 minutes left to play.
Coach Amber Lannom commented on the victory, “Today’s game was one of our bet yet. I think the girls started the game with a little bit of nervous energy, but that’s to be expected when you play in front of the school. I think once they leveled out everyone was supporting each other and made plays happen. I was very impressed with Kaydra Cash and Sarah Ward defensively. They are consistently shutting down the other team. I also think that Sarah Webb, Kaitlyn Heath and Fred Demers have great chemistry offensively that is starting to click. Autumn’s two goals show how a player has to stay focused and wait for those moments to sneak in a goal.”
The win improved the Warriorettes to 4-6 overall on the season. They will remain at home Thursday night to host DeKalb County in a game slated for a 6 p.m. start on Dee Harris Field.
