MHS soccer wins 3-0

By Joel Jellison

The Manhattan High soccer team won its third game of the season on Friday, beating Olathe North 3-0 on the road.

The Indians opened the game with an unassisted goal from Bailey Snyder, and went ahead 2-0 after Annissa Durar finished on a through ball from Onyeka Ehie.

Durar put the game away in the second half when she scored an unassisted goal that MHS coach Mike Sanchez said basically fell to her feet.

Sanchez said they had chances to make the score even worse.

“We had opportunities that it could have been six- or 7-0, but we just missed on some chances, and that’s sort of how the game goes,” he said.

The MHS coach said the team is still getting into the flow of playing aggressively from start to finish.

“They played really well, I was really proud of them,” he said. “They are getting used to playing like it’s 0-0 and keeping the pedal on the medal the whole game.”

Sanchez said the defense played well on Friday, keeping Olathe North’s shot attempts down and making sure goalkeeper Kristen Thompson wasn’t too busy.

The Indians will have some time off next week before hosting Washburn Rural on Thursday. MHS will have three games the following week as it hosts Salina Central on April 9, play at Emporia the following day, and play Seaman at home on April 12.
