Kemp’s Dutchgirl defeat Lady Bulldogs, weather

Posted

No matter what fell out of the sky Thursday night at Dutchmen Field, it could not slow down Kalyn Kemp’s Owensville Dutchgirl soccer team during their home match against Dixon’s Lady Bulldogs.

Tied at 1-1 with 16:49 until halftime, Owensville scored the first of eight unanswered goals when Audrey Quilacio found the back of the net with 11:50 for the half.

From there, the Dutchgirls scored the next seven goals before winning the match 9-1 via the eight-goal mercy rule with 18:33 remaining in the match.

“This was a good win to get for us considering all of the weather conditions we had to play in,” Kemp said.

After over 10 minutes of scoreless soccer, Owensville broke the deadlock when Landry Watson scored her first goal of the game at the 27:59 mark of the opening half.

Over 10 minutes later, Dixon turned a breakaway into the equalizing goal tying the match at 1-1 just beyond the midway point of the first half.

Following Quilacio’s aforementioned goal five minutes later, Watson punctuated the first-half scoring with a goal at the 2:20 mark giving the Dutchgirls a 3-1 halftime lead.

Just over seven minutes into the second half, Watson scored yet another goal giving her a hat trick and a 4-1 for Owensville with 32:50 remaining.

Watson was nowhere near done after scoring her third goal.

A mere :33 later, Watson found the back of the net yet again for her fourth goal of the game and a 5-1 lead 32:17 left in the match.

Seven minutes later, another Dutchgirl joined the goal-scoring frenzy.

Jocelyn Benson added her name into the scoring column with a goal at the 25:14 mark of the second half pushing the Owensville lead to 6-1 over Dixon.

Nearly three minutes later, lightning struck twice for Benson.

Finding the back of the net for the second time at the 25:14 mark of the second half, OHS now had a 7-1 lead with a mercy-rule victory in their sights.

Approaching the midway point of the second half, Kylie Kitchen added her name to the list of goal scorers with 20:22 left in the match.

Now leading 8-1, Owensville was one goal away from ending the match early and sending everyone in attendance home to dryer and warmer locations.

Already with four goals on the night, Watson sent everyone home with her fifth goal of the game at the 18:33 mark of the second half.

Starting for an injured Paige Loyd in goal, Emily Krause allowed one first-half goal while saving one other first half shot.

Seeing her Dutchgirl teammates keep the ball on Dixon’s side of the field the majority of the second half, Krause did not face any shots on goal before earning the win.

Looking for back-to-back wins on the week, Owensville hosted Capital City’s Lady Cavaliers Friday night under sunny skies at Dutchmen Field.

Falling behind in the first half, the Dutchgirls could not get an offensive rhythm going against a game Lady Cavalier squad before falling 5-0 to their opponents from the city of Jefferson.

 Starting tonight (Wednesday) and continuing through Saturday, Owensville will make three trips west on Highway 28 to competing in the Dixon Girls Soccer Tournament.

OHS will begin their portion of the tournament tomorrow (Thursday) at 5 p.m., facing Belle’s Lady Tigers after Dixon and Crocker square off at 3:30 p.m.

Kemp’s Dutchgirls will continue the tournament on Friday also at 5 p.m., against Laquey’s Lady Hornets following Belle and Crocker at 3:30 p.m.

Owensville will cap the round-robin formatted tournament on Saturday with two matches.

Their first match will be at 11 a.m., against the host Lady Bulldogs looking to their recent 9-1 victory over Dixon from last Thursday night. Owensville will then cap their portion of the tournament later that day at approximately 2 p.m., taking on Crocker’s Lady Lions.
