Lady Broncos rout Warriors in home opener

It’s hard to score in soccer. Even the professionals occasionally sit through games that end in scoreless ties.

That’s why Western Brown’s 7-1 victory over Goshen Tuesday night was an impressive one.

The Broncos opened the scoring just nine minutes into the contest. Sophomore Autumn Boothby ripped a shot past the Goshen goaltender to give the Broncos a lead. It didn’t last very long, as the Warriors were able to tie the game just six minutes later.

Broncos head coach Dan Silvis was not pleased that his team surrendered the goal.

“I’m not happy about that goal scored against us,” Silvis said. “We should’ve had a shutout. Sometimes mistakes happen so let’s just say I’m not happy with that goal.”

The goal would prevent senior goaltender Danielle Quittschreiber from drawing closer to the school’s all-time career shutout record. She currently sits three shutouts shy of breaking the record.

Western Brown tallied three more goals in the second half of the contest. Boothby scored her third goal of the game in the 19th minute. The Broncos tallied two goals in the half when the Goshen goalkeeper came out of the net to make a play on the Bronco attacker. Both times the Broncos converted for the score, once by junior Sierra Steppeler and the other coming off the foot of sophomore Sierra Darlington.

The Broncos offense started out slowly, but Silvis said he talked to his players and got them back on track.

“We did a lot of ugly stuff in the first 10 minutes of the game, sending balls wherever we could kick it,” Silvis said. “I pulled some of them out and tried to make them understand that we want to possess the ball a little bit more.”

The Broncos have a pair of Southern Buckeye Conference matchups next week, at Batavia on Sept. 1 at 7 p.m. and at New Richmond again at 7 p.m. on Sept. 3.
