The Oldenburg Academy girls soccer team remains undefeated on the season, but was put to the test by Harrison. The two teams battled to a 0-0 tie at Gillespie Soccer Park. Both teams came out playing aggressive soccer and challenged each other’s possessions, according to OA coach Jeff Nolting. The Lady Twisters won the shot differential by taking 20 shots and only giving up nine. “This was the first game that our defense has been challenged,” Nolting commented “I’m pleased with the ball pressure and limited shot allowed by our girls. “May Hetzer and Meghan Wanstrath did an exceptional job stopping Harrison’s outside counter attacks,” he added. The coach also credited Alyssa Stein for her play in the middle and Hillary Nolting for her play in goal. “Offensively we were able to control possession through stretches of the game, but were unable to convert even though we took 20 shots,” Nolting commented. “A little disappointed we couldn’t score a goal, but credit to Harrison ... none of our shots came without being contested. One day earlier, the Lady Twisters traveled to Greensburg and left with a 5-0 victory.
