Whittell wins soccer opener

Tribune staff report

Senior Jenna Hayes and freshman Kate Greenspan each scored goals as Whittell High defeated Dayton 2-0 in a rainy season opener Wednesday in Zephyr Cove.

The Warriors opened the scoring late as Greenspan scored with 8 minutes remaining. Hayes followed with her goal 4 minutes later.

“They played very good as a team,” said first-year head coach Jane Gadbois. “They passed the ball very well and Elise Thomas did a great job in goal.”

Gadbois was also pleased with the debuts of freshmen Greenspan, Marissa McKool, Nichole Adams and Brooke Schussel.

Whittell travels to Damonte Ranch for a 5 p.m. game Monday.

“Now that we have one behind us, it should make them more confident in what they need to do for the rest of the season,” Gadbois said.
