Kenton Pulls Away Late, Defeats Defiance 4-1

Written by on September 16, 2022

The Kenton Lady Wildcats pulled away over the final nine minutes to put away a pesky Defiance team by a 4-1 count Thursday at Merold Field.

The Wildcats move to 7-3 overall and 2-2 in the Western Buckeye League while the Bulldogs slip to 1-8 overall and 1-3 in league action.

Abi Temple put the Cats ahead with a marker just over two minutes into the contest, and it stayed that way until just over 10 minutes remained in the second half when a rocket off the foot of Defiance’s Reece Rittenhouse knotted the game at 1-each.

Kenton answered less than a minute later when Avery Smith scored, and exactly two minutes after that, Kyla Bostater slipped one past the goalkeeper to make it 3-1 Kenton.

Ali Harpel rounded out the scoring with a goal as time expired for the Wildcats.
