Defense shines through while offense still finding groove for CL

It’s an understatement to say the Wildcat girls’ soccer team is defensive-minded.  Exhibit A is the recent three game stretch against the conference co-leaders where a total of three goals were scored.  The Wildcats lost to the Monticello Magic 1-0 Tuesday, September 8 at Monticello High School.  In the rematch at home on Thursday, September 10, Alyssa Hempel scored the only goal for the Wildcats midway through the first half as they tied the Magic 1-1.  And on Tuesday, September 15, the Wildcats battled the St. Francis Fighting Saints to a 0-0 tie at St. Francis High School.

Through six games so far this season, the Wildcats (3-1-2) have scored five goals and given up just two.  Senior goalkeeper Dylan Grave leads a Wildcat defensive effort that stops even the top teams from scoring.  But the flipside is that the Wildcat defensive prowess limits their ability to score.  This can be an issue only if the Wildcats get into a relatively high-scoring game, as happened in the section championship game loss to Cloquet last season.  But the Wildcat style has provided them with a great deal of success over the past few seasons and this could be the year they take advantage of their defensive prowess in the postseason.  Assuming there is a postseason, which is still unknown at this point.  The MSHSL should make a decision on whether or not we will see playoff soccer this year by later this week or the beginning of next week.

The fifth-place Wildcats (3-1-2) have a chance to move up in the tight Mississippi 8 Conference standings as they feast on a couple of bottom feeders.  Tomorrow night, they host the Becker Bulldogs (0-6-0) at Chisago Lakes High School at 7 p.m.  Next Tuesday, September 22, they head to Cambridge-Isanti High School to take on the Bluejackets (0-5-1) at 7 p.m.
