  • In non-conference action, the Lady Leaf soccer team was edged out by visiting Bettendorf, 1-0 April 22.
    “We played a very good game against a very good team and Bettendorf played a very aggressive, hard to defend style, but it was good to get a game like that in,” said head coach Ian Kline. “We are a strong defensive team, but a lot of the teams we are playing are not testing us, but Bettendorf did. I think we did well, and I was very happy with the girls.”
    After a scoreless first half of play, the Bulldogs punched in the winning goal in the second half.
    The Lady Leafs finished the game with nine shots on goal; while Bettendorf took 19 shots on goal.
    “Darci doesn’t get too many shots in a lot of games,” said Kline. “She was geared up for this game, and has been prepping very hard the last few days. She wants to step up and play well. We had a hard workout the other day and she was ready to go after it so we did some work in the goal that was intensive, too. She has the work ethic, is driven and talented. She just needs a little help.”
    The Lady Leafs (7-2-1 overall and 3-0 in the NIB 12) will be in action at 1 p.m. April 27 against Rock Island.
