KCC’s Head Women’s Soccer Coach Levi Butcher said the night was tough but “in many ways we stood up to it and showed well.”
“For the first 30 minutes we played extremely well and split possession with a very solid Jackson team,” Butcher said. “Once Jackson gained the advantage in possession, naturally we were on our heels a bit, and they got a couple goals before halftime. We gave up another early goal in the second half, which is something we just can’t afford to do but has bit us in each of the last two matches. That one is on us as coaches to better prep them coming out of halftime and get them set up to have a strong start.”
Freshman goalkeeper Maya Ruelas (Kalamazoo/Home School) had another busy night, pulling 15 saves from Jackson’s 19 shots on goal, “including five or six of the spectacular variety,” Butcher said.
