Sweet Home earns first win of season with shut out of Crook County

Saturday afternoon, the Sweet Home Huskies used strong defense to defeat the visiting Crook County Cowgirls, 3-0, in non-league soccer action.

“They were a team of pretty much all seniors,” said Crook County head coach Rich Abrams.

Sweet Home scored their first goal late in the first half on a penalty kick after the Cowgirls were called for a hand ball inside the penalty box.

“It kind of forced us to play differently,” Abrams said of the goal. “You can’t just rely on your defense and a counter attack once you are behind. You have to try to score and that opens it up a little for the other team.”

The Huskies took advantage of opportunities in the second half to score two more goals. Although the Cowgirls were to put some pressure on the Huskies in the second half they were unable to find a way to score.

The Cowgirls, who have been riddled with injuries, were missing four starters during the match.

With the win, the Huskies moved their record to 1-2-4 while the Cowgirls fell to 2-7 on the year.
