Larks improve play, tie Coffeyville

On a cold Tuesday night Hesston College tied the Coffeyville (Kan.) Red Raiders 1-1 in a double overtime match. Hesston was able to control the ball offensively and had a lot of chances but couldn’t capitalize to get the win.

“Tonight we did a good job of pressuring Coffeyville,” said coach Kurt Hostetler. “We were able to generate turnovers that led to several good chances.” Led by Brittany Albrecht (Sebewaing, Mich.) with three shots and the lone goal for the Larks, the offensive attack showed marked improvement. Freshman Janna Kaufman (Friedens, Pa.) and Kelsey Schrock (Wellman, Iowa) each recorded three shots. Freshman goalie Megan Leatherman (Hesston, Kan.) saved 7 of 8 shots for another impressive performance in goal.

“During the overtime periods I felt that we were the dominant team,” Hostetler said. “Unfortunately we were not able to capitalize on our chances down the stretch, but the girls battled hard the whole game and they should feel good about their efforts.”

The Larks, still looking for that elusive first win, head to Iola, Kan., to face Allen County Community College on Thursday, Oct 15 at 5:30.
