ONW Boys Soccer vs Washburn Rural (Sept 10)

By Josh Burton

This Tuesday, the ONW Raven soccer team faced off against the Washburn Rural Baby Blues. The Ravens were looking to rebound from back-to-back losses against Park Hill South and Ray-Pec. After a hard-fought game, the Ravens were able to come back from Topeka with a huge 3-2 win.

The game started off slowly as both teams eased in to an extremely physical match. Late in the first half, Dylan Naidu floated a ball into the back post, and Landon Ouellette looped a header over the Washburn keeper for a 1-0 Raven lead. The Ravens moved into halftime with a 1-0 lead, but this game was far from over. 

The Baby Blues started off strongly in the second half and put two goals past the Ravens. The Ravens trailed 1-2, but were determined to fight back. Midway through the second half, Davis Goertzen chipped a ball into the box and Noah Conover was able to tie up the game with a beautiful header into the top corner. With 10 minutes left in the game, Landon Ouellette was able to win a penalty kick through some strong hold-up play. Davis Goertzen converted the penalty and gave the Ravens a 3-2 lead. The Ravens defended hard until the final whistle and were able to hold onto their lead and win the game 3-2.

The Ravens are now 2-2 on the season. Looking forward, the Ravens are hoping to continue this momentum in their next game against Eudora. They play at 1:00 on Saturday at CBAC, so come out and support the team!
