Beckman coach Greg Keegan netted his 100th career win when his girls toppled Solon, April 16, at home, 1-0.
Hope Naber scored the lone goal needed, a “high lofted shot over the outstretched hands of Solon keeper Alex Paisley,” said Keegan. “She had an almost identical goal in our home opener.”
Notching shots on goal, a team total of 24, were Naber, Kennedy Arens and Olivia Hogan five, Sydnie Reitzler three, Isabelle Kluesner, Lauren Osterhaus and Trista Schmidt two. Reese Osterhaus made one save and the Blazers had 10 corner kicks.
“Outshooting them 24-3, we played most of the game in the offensive half,” added Keegan. “But only getting one goal out of those 24 kicks and 10 corners is not what we are looking for offensively. We did have a couple of starters missing due to the musical so we had to adapt, which I thought we did well.
“I told the girls after the game that this was my 100th win and they were excited to be a part of that. I told them I knew it was going to happen this year because it was supposed to happen with a win to qualify for state in 2019, but we lost that game via a shootout.
“It was a milestone for me after being with Beckman soccer since its inception 18 years ago. I volunteered as an assistant for the first six years and have been head coach the last 12, technically 11 due to COVID-19.”
