Staff report

They had a couple of lapses.

Nonetheless, it was a stellar effort by the Lady Explorers.

The host Hudson girls soccer team improved to 7-4-2 overall and 3-1-2 in the Suburban League National Conference after earning a 5-2 victory over Wadsworth.

The game took place Oct. 5 at Hudson Memorial Stadium.

"We played one of our better games of the season," Lady Explorers head coach Chris Gentille said. "We played a good first half and then we got a little too comfortable in the second half and had to work harder than we should have.

"I liked the way we found goal-scoring opportunities and the defense played a good game."

Hudson got an own goal to take a 1-0 lead and then got goals by Jordan Manley and Grace Killeen to take a 3-0 advantage at halftime.

After the Lady Grizzlies scored on a free kick, Manley and Jenna Reitenbach each found the net to make it 5-1 in favor of Hudson.

Elena Vuksta and Lexi Muccino each had one assist for the Lady Explorers.

Hudson goalkeeper Lilly Morgan made two saves. The Lady Explorers had an 8-3 advantage in shots on goal. Both teams had one corner kick.

Hudson was scheduled to entertain Columbus Bishop Watterson Oct. 8. Results were not available at press time. The Lady Explorers are set to host Suburban League National Conference rival Brecksville-Broadview Heights Oct. 12 at 7 p.m.
