Lady Falcons soccer blanks Lincoln, 1-0
Colfax's Lady Falcons opened Pioneer Valley League girls soccer play Monday evening by fashioning a 1-0 road win at Lincoln.
The Lady Falcons used a goal three minutes into the match from Emilee Klug and then used a staunch defense the rest of the way to blank the Zebras.
Playing under the lights, Colfax improved to 5-3-3 overall and 1-0 in PVL action with the win. Colfax goalie Lindsey Platt, a sophomore, played well and racked up three fine saves in the second half.
“It was a tough match,” said Colfax coach Lefty Wilks. “Coming back off the break and drawing a team like Lincoln on the road isn’t easy.”
Wilks noted that while Colfax misfired on some additional scoring chances, thanks to strong defensive matches from Amanda Moore, Makenzy Thilmony, Sophie Satterlee and Brittany Thomas, the winners were able to keep the Zebras in check.
Colfax will entertain Foothill Wednesday at 4 p.m.
