Logansport’s girls soccer team broke open a tie game with three goals in the final 10 minutes in a 5-2 win at Frankfort on Tuesday.
Whitney Jennings led the way with four goals for the Berries in their season opener. Emily Pomasl added the other goal. Sydney Thompson had two assists and Mallory Rowe added another.
Usually the Frankfort game is a lopsided affair but the Hot Dogs gave the Berries a very close game.
“When we first started playing them they were closer games. The previous three years have been easy, but they were definitely a much improved team,” Logan coach Todd Reiff said.
The Berries had problems finishing goals. Reiff said they converted just 5 of 38 of their shots on goal.
“We worked all two-a-days on increasing our speed of play and we might have overshot that a bit,” he said. “We had a lot of opportunities we didn’t capitalize on because we were moving so fast.
“In the second half we settled down and were more patient and deliberate while still pushing the pace faster.”
Berry senior Amy Spear, the twin sister of teammate Ashley Spear, left the game with a knee injury. Reiff, who’s a physical therapist, is afraid it could possibly put her out for possibly the rest of the season.
“It’s really unfortunate because she’s worked really, really hard all summer long and in two-a-days to gain a starting position,” he said.
The Berries host Western on Thursday for their home opener.
“We’ve got a couple girls banged up a bit so [today] we’re going to let them rest up a bit,” Reiff said. “We’ve got games on Thursday, Saturday and Monday and we’ve got a few bumps and bruises.”
