The Resorters dropped to 0-2 in the Central Lakeshore Conference (0-2 overall) but showed improvement, according to their head coach Kevin Ruh.

“We attacked the ball much better than in the first game – fronting the opposing players. Jessica Raether, Monica Ruh and Meghan Clemens held their own in the middle of the field playing against older players,” Ruh said.

Raether and Clemens are sophomores and Ruh is a freshman.

“We can see progress in our play. Our first-touch ball control is improving and we are getting our heads up and looking downfield for the open player,” said the coach.

“What we run into is we have a great first touch and a bad pass, a great pass and a bad touch. However, there were several instances where the midfielders saw the field and we were able to move the ball down under control.”

The Lady Dutch’s first three goals came in the opening 27 minutes. Sam Theune kicked the initial goal, followed by Maranda Huibregtse and Maria Huibregtse, respectively.

Theuene scored the final goal eight minutes into the second half.

Oostburg, a Division 3 state qualifier last year, had a 17-4 edge in shots on goal. Resorter goalkeeper Jenna Mehre, playing in the goal for the first time in two years, made 11 saves.

“Oostburg played a good game and attacked the edges and centered the ball from the corners,” coach Ruh pointed out.
