Game Summary

When Walker’s JV travels to Kent we are invariably involved in a close match and this visit proved no different. Early exchanges saw chances at both ends of the field. Kent’s clever high line offside trap nullified Walker’s attack on a number of occasions and their speed both in defense and offense troubled Walker’s all over the field. A disjointed period of 20 minutes in the first half saw Walker’s concede to go in 1-0 down at half time. With a concerted effort to play faster, play wider, put good crosses into the box and force breakaways with passes through Kent’s high defensive line Walker’s tied the game early in the second half from a smart finish from Lauren Krupnikoff ’23 after a pull back to the top of the box from Heidi Burley ’22. Walker’s winner soon came from a nicely taken Kyla Birk ’23 breakaway. Walker’s time-managed the rest of the half, keeping possession well and offering Kent few opportunities to get back into the game.
