Both Cannon Falls soccer teams are showing improvement, and that is being reflected in statistics for both squads.
The girls lost to Waseca 9-0 Friday, but gave up only two goals in the first half. Goalie Jordan Kasa faced 39 shots in the contest.
Coach Anne Davisson noted a number of positives from the match: the girls are seeing the field better; they have maintained positive attitudes; the girls are working hard and pushing themselves; and they're beginning to understand the game.
"Waseca was a club filled with girls who have played together since elementary school," Davisson said. "They handled the ball well and had some solid shots on goal. It was a glimpse of what our girls can accomplish in time as they continue to improve and grow together."
The boys gave up only three goals Saturday in a 3-0 loss to St. Paul Academy. Beau Rueger had six shots on goal, and Dalton Tanner had three shots on goal. The Bomber goalie faced only 21 shots. The JV lost 6-0.
"It was our best game yet," commented coach Adam Rueger.
The boys were at Schaeffer Academy on Tuesday, and they go to Kasson-Mantorville on Thursday. The girls go to Schaeffer Academy on Thursday, then host New Life Academy on Tuesday, Sept. 17, at the fields at St. Paul's Lutheran Church.
