Wickliffe overpowers Trinity

Led by Maegan Andrykovitch, Wickliffe overpowered visiting Trinity on Thursday, 7-1.

Andrykovitch scored three goals and the Blue Devils had this one put away by halftime with a 5-1 advantage.

“This was a good rebound game for us,” Wickliffe coach Steve Gribovicz said. “We played as a team and were able to string together passes to attack as a unit.”

Morgan Gabriel and Mia Welms scored two goals each and Gabriel and Eliza Wills each recorded a pair of assists while Welms also assisted on a goal.

Summer Wrobel scored Trinity’s lone goal, which, at the time, had knotted up the score at 1-1.

“We made some key defensive changes in the middle of the first half which helped us stifle their early attacks,” Gribovicz said. “The cohesiveness in our defense allowed our offense to attack and keep the pressure on Trinity to open up the lead after starting off 1-1.”

Wickliffe did everything right on Thursday from getting the ball to its offensive playmakers to implementing the in-game changes that prevented Trinity from mounting more of an offensive attack.

“(Andrykovitch) was aggressive today in scoring her trio of goals in a variety of ways, including curling in a corner kick,” Gribiovicz said. “Trinity has some key players that really made things difficult for us in the beginning of the game and we had to make adjustments to the entire game to earn the victory.”

Massey Andrykovitch and Clare Andrykovitch also contributed to the win.

“(They) may not have shown up in the final stat line, but their contribution on offense were felt in the lead-ups to some scoring opportunities and other potential chances,” Gribovicz said.

Kaylee Lauriel recorded six saves for the Blue Devils while Trinity’s Tiah Charlton finished with five.
