No goals for, or against, Cougars girls soccer team
TRURO - Three games into the NSSAF Northumberland region girls soccer season and the Cobequid Cougars have yet to score a goal.
But on the bright side they have yet to let one in their own net.
The Cougars battled to another 0-0 stalemate Thursday against the North Nova Gryphons at CEC Field, after doing so against the Dr. John Hugh Gillis Royals and Northumberland Nighthawks earlier this season.
Regan Zscheile recorded the shutout.
The result caused some mixed emotions with the club. Naturally, without scoring a goal the Cougars were disappointed, especially after hitting three posts.
"I think at times we dominated the game," said Cougars co-coach Kate Adams. "It was unfortunate because it probably could have been 4-0."
But Adams said the Cougars are optimistic if they keep creating chances they'll start hitting the back of the net.
"We didn't dominate the whole game but we had a good chunk of it and we were just unlucky with hitting the posts."
However, Cobequid is happy with how its defence is playing under the leadership of senior Carleigh Hiltz and freshman Emily Annand.
"Carleigh has been playing outstanding, she's been so steady," Adams said.
"And Emily has been impressive at the back too."
Those two, along with the other Cougars fullbacks, have been keeping Zscheile from being tested often.
The Cougars are hoping to get their offence clicking tonight when they face the South Colchester Wolves in an exhibition game at 8 p.m. at the NSAC Field.
"We just need to get our confidence up a bit and know that we can score," Adams said.
