Mother Nature delayed Tuesday (Sep. 1) night’s Elyria Catholic/Independence girls varsity soccer match for a bit, but neither the weather nor the Blue Devils could slow down the potent Panther attack as EC and first-year head coach Jonathan Ruano knocked off the hosts by a score of 5-0 to improve to 1-2 on the young year.
Sophomores MaKenna Hodges and Ryan Kunkle both scored twice and senior Meliah Roman accounted for the other EC tally. Strong team defense limited the Blue Devils to just one shot on goal all evening.
The Panthers will be in action again on Saturday (Sep. 5) when they travel across town to take on Elyria High School. That match will begin at 5:00 p.m.
