Madonna beats Oak Glen

WEIRTON - The Weirton Madonna girls soccer team beat visiting Oak Glen 6-2 Tuesday.

The teams played to a 2-2 tie in the first half.

Madonna jumped out 2-0 on a pair of Rachel Grubbs goals. The first was assisted by Mia Antinone in the third minute and the second by Gaby Kotten in the seventh.

The Golden Bears stormed back with two of their own. The first came when an Alex Burch cross pass to Megan Collins bounced off a Blue Dons' player and into the net at the game's 20th minute. Megan Collins tied the score at 2-all with an unassisted goal about eight minutes later.

"I give Oak Glen a lot of credit," said Madonna head coach Bob Kolanko. "Though they were down two goal within the first seven minutes, but they fought back and squared the match 2-2 by the half. (Oak Glen) Coach Sam Paletta has done a wonderful job with his girls and his record shows that."

It was all Lady Dons in the second half. Mia Antinone put an Anna Westfall pass in for the half's first goal and a 3-2 lead. Christina

Christina Conforti then scored two straight, one on a Kotten assist and the other off a corner kick to make the score 5-2 Madonna. Grubbs closed out the scoring with her third goal with about seven minutes left off Kotten's third assist.

"At halftime, we made some adjustments in the middle of the field and up top which allowed us to better control the ball and spend more time in the attacking third of the field," said Kolanko.

Both teams got off 15 shots on goal with Madonna goalie Amy Davis saving 11 and Oak Glen goalie Casey Highfield rejecting nine.

"It was great to get Amy back in goal after spending the last three games on the bench with an injury," said Kolanko.
