FORT MADISON – Fort Madison’s girls soccer team is finding ways to get shots in just their fourth season in play, but couldn’t get by Keokuk 5-0 Monday night at the Baxter Sports Complex.
Head coach Sebastian Siefert said the Lady Hounds had ample shots but just couldn’t find the net.
“Taylor Shannon, Dezire Kline and Emily Wolf didn’t find the target though we had many opportunities during the first half,” Siefert said.
He said the Hounds had a very strong first half holding the Chiefs scoreless for the first 10 minutes.
Siefert said Kaeli Hutson, Braxtyn McGhyghy and Brynn Schroeder played the wings and are starting to get a good understanding of their roles and expectations.
“They likely ran the most of anyone on the pitch and played their positions well. It’s exciting to see things starting to fall into place. I feel like we have been here before in years past, I just hope this year we can actually continue to progress and let the scoreboard reflect that,” Siefert said.
The Hounds are 1-2 with the loss and travel to Mt. Pleasant on Monday and then have Washington and Macomb both on the road.
Siefert said he expects the team to be 3-2 by the end of those matches.
McKenna Fehseke was voted player of the game by her teammates. Fehseke also scored a goal in the junior varsity contest that FMHS won 4-0. Taylor Shannan, Anna Kester, and Sally Johnstun all had goals in the contest.
