The Coudersport soccer team came away with a shutout victory against the visiting Kane Wolves, 3-0, on Thursday, Oct. 1.
In the first game of the season, the Falcons lost a road game to the Wolves in overtime, 4-3. Scoring the same amount of points but winning, the Falcons’ defense dominated the Wolves. In fact, the Wolves losing streak is now four games after starting 3-0.
According to head coach Erich Zaun, he and his players developed a better gameplan, focusing more on positioning and stressed ball possession, which hurt them in the first meeting.
“I think the difference in this game was definitely how we adjusted our time of possession, positioning, and who had the ball in what spot,” Coudersport head coach Erich Zaun said. “In the last practice before this game, we worked on short, good passes and made sure our possessions were as long as we needed them to be.”
Jacob Hooftallen led Coudersport with two goals, one of which was a penalty kick. The other goal was by Ethan Ross. Both Hooftallen and Ross added one assist.
Goalie Rosalyn Page had a good game in the net, making 10 saves.
