On the road less than 24 hours after their Friday night game, KUA found themselves in a battle against a fast and physical Wilbraham side. Despite good amounts of ball possession in the opposing end, KUA could not capitalize in the first half. Early in the second half, Wilbraham struck first off a long throw to take a 1-0 lead. With 15 minutes still remaining, Willa McGough found Kyra Russman-Araya at the top of the 18 who then finished with a low strike to the left post. Casey Allen, Molly Davis, Bella Parento, and Scout Beaupre were key figures in the back. Kat Maniatis, Esa Anderson, and Lucie Turcotte played non-stop, two way soccer throughout the game. Olivia Brooker and Sophie Bridge split time in the net for the Wildcats. KUA (7-3-2) plays New Hampton twice this week.
