West Ottawa High School
Zeeland East High School
The Chix hosted the Panthers of West Ottawa on Friday night. West Ottawa demonstrated a high level of skill and athleticism scoring 4 goals in the first half and 2 more in the second for a 6-0 victory. Hope Steenwyk has 13 saves in the loss.
After the game Coach Elgersma offered some observations: “We knew that playing Unity Christian on Wednesday and West Ottawa on Friday was going to place a high demand on us physically. The simple truth is, West Ottawa was physically dominate tonight. We didn’t have the legs to stay with their speed. When you’re fatigued, you begin to breakdown mentally. The effort and desire were there, we just didn’t have it tonight. We’ll work through it, we’re learning, we’re getting better. Unfortunately these kinds of games are part of the process. We got beat tonight by a very good West Ottawa team, unfortunately we didn’t have enough in the tank to give them our best.”
