Honesdale's girls varsity soccer team is making another run at the Division 'C' soccer crown. The Lady Hornets are now 6-1 after a Monday afternoon thrashing of Tunkhannock.
Very quietly, the Lady Hornets are making a case for themselves as a legitimate play-off contender in WVC soccer action.
On Tuesday afternoon here in the Maple City, Coach Eric Eisele’s girls hammered out a dominating 5-1 victory over Tunkhannock. With the win, the Red & Black upped their regular season record to 6-1. Honesdale is now tied atop the Division ‘C’ standings with Hanover Area.
“We’re really playing like a team,” Lady Hornet star Kayla Hartley said during a recent visit to the TWI Sports desk. “We’re a very close-knit group...almost like a family. We’re not settling for anything less that another championship.”
Hartley and her teammates jumped all over Tunkhannock in Tuesday’s match. The Lady Hornets peppered the Tigers’ net with shots, building a 3-0 lead at intermission.
Maureen Ordnung led the way with a pair of goals. ‘Mo’ broke the ice off an assist from Grace Manzione just 8:18 into the match. She closed out the scoring with less than eight minutes remaining in the second half.
Hartley was once again all over the field. Honesdale’s senior striker contributed a goal and two assists. Kayla is now all alone in her quest for a second straight Division ‘C’ scoring title. She finished up last season with 25 goals and seven assists.
Allaina Propst earned the win between the pipes. Honesdale’s senior keeper faced just four shots and carded three saves.
