Meet Recap

The girl’s varsity tennis team shut down the North Olmsted Eagles on Wednesday with an impressive 4-1 conference victory.
First off the courts, were the doubles team of returning varsity sophomore, Aly Leither and newcomer, Delany Brown. Leither and Brown took control of the match from the first serve and never lost a game. Leither kept them guessing with her serves and return shots and Brown, just shy of 6’0, owned the net with her great reach. They both moved the ball consistently at the baseline and the net. They worked as a strong team to get the “double bagel” 6-0, 6-0 win. This was the first shut out for the team this year.

Next off the courts were Gabby Gosciewski and Disha Rathod at first doubles. The duo outmaneuvered the Eagles and kept them on the run the entire match. Gosciewski’s varsity experience from last year made her look at home at the net as she continuously stared down her opponents and put away net winners. She also lobbed with great finesse to keep her opponents completely off guard. Rathod had several sharp cross court winners and came up with many well timed big serves. Together, the Bulldogs brought in a strong 6-2, 6-1 win.

Playing at third singles, Ellie Goetz had an opponent that came out strong and took the first 3 games from the lady Bulldog. That was all that was needed to get the fast moving freshman to turn up the power and keep her sights on keeping this just a two set match. Goetz kept her opponent on the move and crushed several topspin backhands to the corner to bring the first set to 3-3. All it took was a few hard serves to give Goetz the momentum to win the first set 6-4. The second set was a quick task for Goetz and she won it easily, 6-1. Goetz closed it out with a final 6-4, 6-1 score.

Madison Sherman has come from behind in a match before and she proved once again that you don’t need to have the lead the entire match to end up the winner. The first set was a challenge for Sherman as she tried to figure out her opponents game. By the end of the loss of the first set (6-2) she started to move her opponent around and win several long rallies. It didn’t take long for Sherman to get a game plan and put away the second set and force a 10 point tiebreaker. With all other matches completed, both teams were there to watch and cheer this exciting final match of the day. Sherman took an early lead and refused to let her opponent gain any momentum. Her strong serves and ability to chase down every single ball helped Sherman keep the lead in the tiebreaker and go on to win the match at second singles. The final match score was 2-6, 6-2, (10-7)

Captain, Abby Gaba faced an extremely hard hitting opponent at first singles. Gaba hit several cross court winners, chased down every ball and battled back powerful serves to stay competitive in every game. It was a long match and she gave her best, but North Olmsted won the first singles match 6-3, 6-2.

The varsity team travels to Avon Lake on Saturday for the SWC Conference Tournament. Varsity head coach Laura Graham said, “Our team has been getting stronger with every match and the way this young team battled today was a testament to how hard they have trained throughout the year and our current season. They have grit and determination and that’s what you need to play such a tough mental and physical sport like tennis. I am so proud of my team and I am excited to see them take on the other teams this Saturday.”

Play begins at 9am at Avon Lake High School, Saturday September 16th. Stop out and cheer the lady netters on at the SWC Varsity Tournament!

Game Recap

Bulldogs Use Big 2nd Half To Drop Amherst Comets 4-0

The first post Irma rain drops started falling at the final whistle as the Olmsted Falls Bulldogs finished up an important 4-0 SWC win over Amherst behind senior Kevin Lemin’s hat trick and an overwhelming team defense.

The Bulldogs controlled the grass pitch at Amherst Junior High as senior Charlie Watters scored for the 2nd straight game and chipped in an assist. Senior captain Ryan Kolonick exerted his will on the Amherst midfield as he ignited counters and breaks all evening after wrangling Comet players out of the ball. The Bulldog defensive back line of seniors Chase Fernkorn, Mark Ortiz, Kolonick, Joe Bement, and juniors Alex Kleck and Noah Le allowed only one shot on goal as senior GK Shelby Edwards took home win # 7 and clean sheet #5.
With Lemin and Kolonick at the midfield controls, numerous Bulldogs chased down through balls into the Comet box and peppered the Comet goalie all night.

Senior Rylan Wikle sent a header wide off a cross six minutes into the match and the Dogs were on the run. Amherst needed 9 men back slow the Dogs attack. A Lemin cross to Kolonick was nearly headed in and a through ball to Watters just missed. Senior Chase Fernkorn put a head ball on frame off a corner kick three minutes before Mark Ortiz burned into the Comet box and caused a hall ball violation with two point-blank shots on goal. Lemin converted the PK and the Comets only trailed 1-0 at the half.

After the half, Olmsted Falls turned it up a notch. Rylan Wikle sent a baseline free kick through the box without finding feet to set the tone. Then Watters played a pretty through ball to Lemin right up the middle for goal number two. Senior midfielder Joe Bement grabbed a pass and sent a crisp ball into Watters as he cut through the box. Watters volleyed the ball into the top of net on a sweet play and the Dogs were in control 3-0. The Comets grabbed and held Bulldog players all evening to no avail. The Bulldogs had three straight shots blocked in the box at the 24-minute mark without finding joy but then Kolonick found Lemin in stride with a perfect pass and Lemin completed his 2nd career hat trick with a right footer for the final 4-0 score.

The Dogs host longtime rival Strongsville Mustangs this Wednesday evening in a sure fire heavyweight slugfest. The Bulldogs and Mustangs have met 5 times in the last three years and every game has extremely close and bone crushing. The Mustangs will look to send a message so let’s get Bulldog Nation out in full force Saturday 7pm at Falls Middle School Soccer Complex. The game will have added meaning in that Coach Walchanowicz notched win number 199 against Amherst and goes for #200 on Saturday.

This is Bulldog Soccer.
