The Lady Broncos traveled to Zeeland West on a cold Friday night to battle the Dux in their annual match. The first half saw play on both ends of the field with ZW outshooting the Lady Broncos 7-5 yet no goals were allowed and the halftime score was knotted at 0-0.
The second half showed a scoring outburst as Katelyn Messock opened up the seasons scoring just 28 seconds in with a nicely placed shot past the Dux keeper. ZW would even the score only a few minutes later. Both teams took turns on offense for the next 15 minutes but it was the Lady Broncos with the go ahead goal with 17 minutes remaining on a blast from Erin Mason from 20 yards out. ZW evened the score at 2-2 with 8 minutes remaining for the final score. The Lady Broncos outshot the Dux in the 2nd half 8-6.
All 22 players on the roster played and contributed to the final result. Overall it was a solid effort against a very talented team. The Lady Broncos next game is the Tuesday after spring break against Calvin Christian, which gives a few players an opportunity to heal some minor injuries that are bothersome. The season looks very promising!
