Sisters 4, Grant Union 0
SISTERS - Grant Union soccer coach Ken Purnell said the Prospectors had another "learning experience" on Tuesday, Sept. 10, dropping a 4-0 non-league match to the Outlaws.
The loss kept the Prospectors winless on the season at 0-1 in Special District No. 4 matches and 0-2 overall.
"Sisters has a few very talented, quick players and a good coach, but I don't think they are 4-0 better than us," Purnell said. "We didn't play very well in this match, but I think we are going to break out of it and start playing a lot better."
Purnell said senior fullback Tim Willey played a good match, especially on defense, for the Prospectors.
"As a team, the most encouraging thing is the way the kids have responded to starting the season 0-2," Purnell said. "The kids are working harder in practice to reach the goals they set for themselves before the season began. This could be a positive thing for us in the long run."
