After winning their season opener 7-1, the Whitley County Lady Colonels soccer team has struggled to score.
Following a 1-1 tie against Hazard, Kelly Sawyers’ squad fell 4-0 to Wayne County on the road Tuesday.
After the loss, Sawyers was disappointed and thought her team had as much a chance to win as the Cardinals.
“I think we had as many chances on goal, but our girls just couldn’t make the best of them,” Sawyers said. “We haven’t been finishing like we should and that’s a concern as the season goes on.”
Wayne County jumped ahead 1-0 in the first half and after what Sawyers called a “major letdown” in the second half, pushed the gap to 4-0 as the match came to a close.
“I think a lot of it was the fact that we are just not communicating as a team,” Sawyers said. “Whether it’s when we have the ball or when we are on defense, we just don’t seem to be talking to each other.”
With the loss, the Lady Colonels fall to 1-1-1 on the season and will be back in action Thursday when they travel to Middlesboro. Sawyers said there would most likely be some changes in the lineup by that time.
“We made a few changes tonight and we’ll see about a few more Thursday,” she said.
