The Waconia Wildcats took the field on Thursday night to play a game with the Watertown-Mayer Royals looking to earn their 6th win in a row and secure their 3rd Wright County Conference in 3 years.
With perfect fall weather and playing under the lights, the cats looked to possess the ball early and used combination passing to press for a goal early on.

A perfect pass wide by Hailey Bogema left Maris Heun in perfect position to shoot but Waconia’s goalie Isabelle Shuster timed her dive perfectly and sent the ball out for a corner. The royals would get 3 more chances on goal, but Shuster held her ground and with help from the Waconia defense kept the shutout going.
Sixteen minutes into the 2nd half, Waconia regained hteir compousure on the ball and with possession came scoring chances. A great cross from Chloe Jaeger almost became the third goal when Kennedie Dustin found herself at the pk spot but her shot went just wide of the goal. A minute later, Jordan Grell would find Bryn Theis in the goal area, and the freshman forwards shot made the score 3-0 in favor of the home team.
