Posted on Wednesday, March 20, 2019 at 10:09 am

It finally got dry enough to get some games in this past week and it was a good one. The Lady Indians soccer teams both varsity and JV got it all started Monday with double wins over 2A King William here. The varsity won 4-0 and the JVs took a 4-1 victory. The guys got into the action with a varsity only win here Wednesday, 3-1  over Rappahannock County (Washington, Va.)

Northumberland scored in the opening half of the ladies  game Monday when Tahi Wiggins scored on an assist from Hannah Loving with about half of the first period gone. In the second half, they really got things going with Cameron Lewis booted one home on a penalty kick from the left corner. That was followed by a long shot by Alice Sisson from the right corner that caught the net in the upper left corner. Lewis completed the Indian’s scoring with seven minutes left on a break away with McKensey Smithart on the assist.

An obviously delighted Coach Mark Fridenstine said “King William is big and strong and the game was more evenly played than the score indicated. An excellent start of the season against a good team.” Smithart had five shots on goal, Lewis and Loving four each. Grace Emminizer had five steals, Smithart four. Goal Tender Addie Swisher recorded the shut out with eleven saves.

The JV girls had set the  tone Monday with their 4-1 win. Abby Jennings scored in the opening half with an assist coming from Grace Sisson. Sisson then scored on an unassisted goal. Emily Rice scored and then KW got on the board. In the second half, Rice got her second with Sisson getting an assist.
