Whitewater Girls Soccer, a number ten seed in first round WIAA regional play, traveled to number 7 East Troy and defeated the Trojans 2-0.

In regular season play, the Whippets lost twice to the Trojans, 2-0 and 2-1, thus the win was redemptive. The Whippets started off slow, but gained momentum when Carmen Kraayvenger scored, assisted by Jaden Henneman in the 37th.

The warm weather taxed the Whippets but the reserves provided steady relief maintaining the team’s tempo. In the 79th minute, Meikayla Korf placed a floater over the keeper to put the Whippets up 2-0 for good. Cora Linos recorded 11 saves in goal. Sierra Brunner pressed the Trojans on attack allowing  space for Kraayvenger, Korf, Henneman and Melanie Reyes to work the midfield. Defensively Brianna Zimdars, Maddie Elworthy, Crystal Chan and Hannah O’Brien held an aggressive East Troy attack.

Up next Whitewater travels to number two seed New Berlin West on Saturday at 1:00 pm.
