NEENAH, WI - The Assumption Catholic Royals girls soccer team began the 2021 season picking up two ties in Saturday's St Mary Catholic triangular in Neenah.
In the first match, it was a 0-0 tie against host school St Mary Catholic. Assumption launched nine shots and earned one corner kick. Assumption goalie, Kate Eithun, was able to turn away both SMC shots in the match.
In the second match, the Assumption girls got their fist goal of the season from freshman, Kendall Duellman. The goal came in the 13th minute against Wrightstown. The Tigers were able to draw event in the 41st minute on a goal from Madison Leick. The Royals outshot the Tigers 10-3 but were unable to find the winner in the second half.
Head coach Jim Wendells was pleased with his team's performances on Saturday. "We got off to an impressive start of our season. St Mary's is a quality team and (I'm) proud of how we competed. Duellman had a hard hit shot that was too much for their (Wrightstown's) goalie. Both teams battled to end resulting in a tie."
Assumption Catholic (0-0-2) begins its conference season on Thursday, May 13th with a road match at Altoona/Fall Creek (4-1-0).
