From Coach McCrea:
On Friday, May 18, the Whitewater Whippet Girls’ Soccer traveled to Edgerton for a conference match against the Tide. The Whippets, holding a 5-2-0 Rock Valley Conference record, were looking to solidify a third-place regular season conference placement with a win and goal margin to outpace Evansville for the spot behind conference-leading McFarland and second-place Big Foot.
The Tide found the goal in the fifth minute of play to take a 1-0 lead. The coaching staff made some player moves to account for Edgerton’s speed on the flanks and slow down the Tide’s pressure. In the 30th minute, Sierra Brunner scored on an assist by Kacie Carollo. In the second half, Whitewater dominated possession but lacked accuracy on its shot selection leading to a 1-1 tie with the Tide and a fourth place, out of nine, finish.
Whitewater now, 5-2-1, plays McFarland on Monday at Madison College for the first game of the RVC tournament. Play will continue on Thursday when Whitewater will travel to meet the winner of the Big Foot-Evansville match.
