It was a difficult week for the General Amherst Lady Gens soccer team.

The Lady Gens fell short in a pair of one-goal matches, the most recent of which was a 2-1 defeat at the hands of the Kingsville Cavaliers last Thursday afternoon at the Libro Centre.

Vanessa Pidutti scored the lone goal for the Lady Gens.

“That was a very tough one,” said General Amherst coach Mark Sweet.

The Lady Gens had numerous opportunities to tie the game late but just couldn’t find a way to get the goal they needed.

“Lady Luck wasn’t with us today,” said Sweet.

General Amherst played great defensively, he added, and the offensive chances were there.

“We had enough to win the game,” said Sweet. “We take the wins with the losses and move on.”

The game two days earlier against the Leamington Lions followed the same pattern. Sweet said they had 13 attempts on the Leamington goal with the Lions only having two attempts but it was Leamington coming away with the 1-0 victory. That game was also played at the Libro Centre.

“I thought we were the better team on that day again,” said Sweet. “We can’t buy luck.”

The girls are working hard and remain determined, with Sweet saying the coaches can’t ask for more and that they are proud of them. They have to get the girls back up and ready to play their next game.

General Amherst, now 2-2-1 on the WECSSAA Tier 3 girls soccer season, conclude the regular season on their home turf Thursday at 4 p.m. versus the Catholic Central Comets.
