Wolves get much need win over Ridgway

After two disappointing losses last week, the Wolves looked to get back on track against the Ridgway Elkers. Kane travelled to Ridgway three weeks ago and came out with a 3-0 win. The start of the game was difficult for both teams as the field conditions were very tough. Nobody was quite able to get their feet under them and put the ball past the goalie. Then, with just 10 minutes remaining in the first half, striker Jack Wolfe intercepted a pass that was played out on a goal kick, took a dribble past the goal keeper, and tapped the ball into a wide open net. Kane looked to go into the break with a 1-0 lead and with just two minutes remaining the ball once again found the foot of Wolfe who put in a tough angle at the near goal to give the home team a 2-0 halftime lead."At halftime the Wolves talked about keeping the intensity up and playing hard," said Kane head soccer coach Chamberlain.With just one minute into the second half midfielder Ryan Peterson fed a beautiful ball to Pete Sirianni who put the ball past the goalie. Eight minutes later, midfielder Jesse Brinkley made a gorgeous shot in the upper netting that was taken from outside the 18-yard box. The next portion of the half belonged to the visiting Elkers, who scored 12 minutes in and 23 minutes in to cut the lead to 4-2. With just 10 minutes remaining in the game Wolfe made a beautiful pass behind the Ridgway defense to Sirianni who put in his second goal of the game. Less than thirty seconds later, Brinkley took another long range shot that found the back of the net, increasing Kane's lead to 6-2. The Elkers would add one final goal with just one minute remaining to give the home team a 6-3 victory.See full article by purchasing the Oct. 4 edition of The Kane Republican.
