Jeff, Harrison duel to girls soccer draw
August 24, 2012Lafayette Jefferson High School
Some sense of accomplishment coupled with disappointment.
That was the consensus from the Harrison and Lafayette Jeff girls soccer teams after the Raiders and Bronchos played to a 1-1 tie Tuesday night at Scheumann Stadium.
Each team’s No. 6 — Jeff’s Scyler Wright and Harrison’s Alissa Kruger — did the scoring. The goals came during a 3:42 span of the second half, Wright scoring at 29:46 followed by Kruger’s at 26:04.
“We have to take this (tie) and play better the next time we play them,” said Kruger, whose Raiders are 3-1-1. “We had a lot of opportunities. It was frustrating. Overall, we played well, just not well enough.”
Harrison had seven shots on goal to Jeff’s two, but the Raiders were turned away six times by Broncho junior keeper Kirsten Williams.
“It’s just a bit disappointing, because we wanted to come back and beat them after last year’s sectional (loss),” Wright said. “Things didn’t always work out in our favor tonight.”
Harrison coach Arin Yarc Keen said the disappointing aspect of the tie is that the Raiders controlled the ball most of the second half but scored only once.
“We didn’t get beat, but we didn’t win, which is the hard part,” Yarc Keen said. “We had the run of play, and we controlled the possession. They had one quality scoring opportunity, and they capitalized on it.
“We had multiple opportunities, and capitalized on only one.”
Jeff coach Coleen Hamrick said her team still is learning how to capitalize on opportunities.
“When we get that opportunity, we have to take advantage of it instead of giving the ball away,” Hamrick said.
