Lady Wolverines Take Down Wildcats, Dragons

Sports Writer

The Dade County High School Lady Wolverine soccer team got the 2023 season off to a great start compiling a 7-1 overall record and are currently 2-0 in conference play. Here are the highlights from a couple of recent games.

The Lady Wolverines traveled to Ft. Payne, Ala., on Monday, Feb. 27, for an I-59 showdown with the Lady Wildcats, and the Lady Wolverines came away triumphant as they defeated Ft. Payne by a score of 4 to 3.

After giving up a goal in the first minute of the match, the Lady Wolverines stabilized themselves and grew into the match. Oli Conrad evened things when she scored off a punt from goalkeeper Abbigail Tremmier. As play continued, Ft. Payne continued to press. They were rewarded with a penalty kick when their outside midfielder was fouled in the box, which was converted to take a 2-1 lead.

The Lady Wolverines continued to battle and evened the match at two when Lila Evearitt scored off a header after Ft. Payne’s goalkeeper was unable to handle a cross. The halftime whistle blew with the teams tied 2-2.

It was Dade who struck first in the second half when great team defense caused the Lady Wildcats to turn the ball over in their defensive third. Conrad finished off the turnover after some great combination play with Anna Ballard, giving the Lady Wolverines the lead, 3-2. The Wildcats equalized late after a free kick was given from a questionable handball call.

That wasn’t enough for the Lady Wildcats because Caroline Tremmier buried the game winner, assisted by Lila Evearitt, with less than five minutes left to play in the match. The Lady Wolverines were able to see the match out and head home with the win, moving them to six wins and one loss on the season.

The Lady Wolverines defeated Pepperell on Wednesday, March 7 by a score of 7 to 1. Conrad had four goals, Evearitt had two goals and Caroline Tremmier had one goal.

Caroline Tremmier also had three assists while Evearitt and Blythe Jelley each had one assist. Great defensive play from Madeline Jelley, Blythe Jelley, Ayden Miles, Chloe Ballard, Kinsley Pryor, Maddie Cuzzort, Alyson Jenkins, and goalkeepers Abbigail Tremmier and Jayden Williams helped keep the Lady Dragons at bay for much of the night. The win moved the Lady Wolverines to 7 and 1 on the season and gives them sole possession of first place in the region at 2 and 0.

The team will be back in action Tuesday, March 14, at Trion High School for a conference match and they will host the Chattooga Lady Indians on Thursday, March 16, at 4:30 p.m.

Get out and support the Lady Wolverines as they look to improve on a successful season!
