Jessica Kinnucan scored twice to lead the Western Michigan Christian varsity girls soccer team past rival Muskegon Catholic Central on Thursday, 6-1.
Kati South, Brea Frein, Alyssa Benedict and Alexys Riksen also scored for the Warriors, who are now 9-1 overall and 6-0 in River Valley Conference play.
“A rivalry game is always tough, no matter what the score,” said Warriors’ coach David Hulings. “This might have been a lopsided score, but play for play, it was still a rivalry game. … I think both coaches could be proud of the effort both teams played. Our girls played so well. The forwards linked up with each other so well. We had a couple goals from our outside midfielders. The four back players were solid the whole game.”
Hulings was able to get some of his reserve players into the game and was excited by what he saw from them.
“They played quite well together and supported the style of play we work on every day. That was an added bonus,” he said.
WMC faces a strong Grand Rapids Catholic Central team on Saturday.
