WYOMING — Hart’s girls soccer team remained winless on the season after a 1-all standoff with Wyoming Potters House on Friday.
Starting the game strong, the Pirates dominated the first 10-12 minutes, but couldn’t convert on their chances and Potters House began to gain the momentum.
Potter’s House put in several crosses that just evaded first-year senior goalkeeper Mya Chickering.
But the pressure eventually cracked the Pirates’ defense, and when Chickering came out to collect a through ball, she collided with a Pumas striker and lost the ball for a tap in by Potters House.
Hart was given a red card with 10 minutes left in the half and had to spend the rest of the game with 10 field players.
But the Pirates finally capitalized on a mistake by the Pumas keeper, who handled the ball on a pass back from her own defender. Junior Chris Rangel punched a shot from just inside the 18-yard distance and hit the back of the net.
The Pirates’ defensive line of senior captain Melanie Arjona, sophomore Breslyn Porter and Kailey Edenburn, and freshman April Chaffee was credited with limiting the Pumas’ chances.
Hart (0-2-1) will face a tough week, beginning with a West Michigan Conference clash with Montague at home on Monday.
