The St. Marys Area Lady Dutch soccer team handed the Kane Lady Wolves a 3-0 setback Thursday afternoon at the SMAHS soccer field.
The Lady Dutch took a 2-0 first half lead. They added another goal early in the second half.
"Overall we played a good possession game today," said St. Marys coach Eric Bridges.
"Our reserves played aggressively and helped us to keep possession of the ball," said Bridges.
"Kane impressed me with their 80 minutes of play. We were forced to fight hard for the 50/50 balls," added Bridges.
The Coudersport Falcons came to town on Thursday afternoon and handed the Kane boysâ€™ soccer team a 3-0 loss on the Wolvesâ€™ home field. Coach Ernie Chamberlainâ€™s Wolves played well, but just couldnâ€™t find the back of the net despite more than a dozen shots on goal.
Kaneâ€™s best chance of scoring early on came when goalie Michael Butterfield made a save and punted the ball way downfield where teammate Chris Cummings caught up to it and redirected it towards the goal. Falcons goalie Michael Chambers batted it away and scooped up the rebound before Cummings could knock it home.
A tree and special plaque have been placed in Evergreen Park in Kane to honor the memory of Brenda Emer.

More than 100 family members and friends-- many with tears in their eyes-- attended a brief ceremony Wednesday to dedicate the tree and plaque on the Birch Street side of the park.
Wearing "We Remember Brenda" pink shirts, Jill Thompson of Kane and the Rev. Craig Smith spoke at the dedication ceremony.

Kane residents attending a budget-input meeting Monday are calling for a reduction in the hours of on-duty borough police coverage.
The police department, headed by Chief Heath Boyer, now provides around-the-clock protection in the borough every day of the year.
Speakers told the Kane Borough Council Monday that the borough could save money by cutting on-duty coverage. Instead of providing 24/7 coverage by an on-duty police officer, the borough could assign policemen to "on-call" status. During "on-call" duty, designated police officers would respond from home only when needed.
