The General Amherst Lady Gens are now 0-2-1 after a tie and a loss last week on the soccer field.

With both games at the Libro Centre, the Lady Gens started the week April 22 with a scoreless tie against the Assumption Purple Raiders. Playing in windy conditions, the game featured tight defensive play as evidenced by the final score. Coaches Eric Jaber and Lisa Voakes report that keeper Maddy Drouillard had a solid game and said the same thing about her Thursday effort, despite Walkerville coming to town and picking up a 3-0 victory.

“It was a great game by Maddy. She’s the best,” said Jaber.

Voakes believed, despite the final score, that the Lady Gens played better against Walkerville as compared to the previous game against Assumption, noting Walkerville is a strong team.

“We’re seeing improvement by our first-year players,” said Voakes.

“We’ve just got to keep moving forward,” added Jaber. “We’ve just got to keep working on the basics and the rest will come together.”

Emma Deluca, Nicole Bechard and Felicia Varacalli also had strong games against Walkerville.

The Lady Gens were in Leamington yesterday after this issue of the River Town Times went to press. They return to their home field Thursday at 4 p.m. for a game against Catholic Central.
