WCMS girls’ soccer team opens 2017 season strong

The Woodford County Middle School girls’ soccer team opened its 2017 season strong, as the Lady Tigers are 3-0-1 with wins over Royal Spring, MCNAA and Georgetown and a tie against Bourbon County. Even more impressive, the team has yet to allow a goal to be scored against them. The Lady Tigers opened the season on Thursday, March 16, on the road against Royal Spring and defeated them 1-0. In their next game on Tuesday, March 21, they faced MCNAA at home and won 2-0. Then they followed that with a 7-0 home win over Georgetown on Thursday, March 23. The Lady Tigers closed out the month on the road where they tied Bourbon County 0-0 on Thursday, March 30. “The fact we have played four games and have yet to have a goal scored against us says a lot about our defense,” said WCMS head coach Abby Baylor. “We have smart and experienced players playing at the goalie position and in our backline. They are rock solid. I am proud of how high this team prioritizes defense. “Offensively, we have players who are willing to work,” she continued. “It’s a matter of learning the game and executing. We have both veteran players and younger players representing us offensively. The talent is there. We are working on improving our ability to hold position and make smart decisions. “Our goal this year is not too win, but to improve. We are winning games and playing great defense, but most importantly, we are improving each and every game. The work these (girls) put in off the field is at a high work rate and they have really displayed a fair amount of discipline for their age. I consider myself very lucky to be able to coach these young ladies. They have worked hard this season.”
