Chieftain soccer team 2-1-1on the weekend

The Dowagiac soccer team won a match, lost a match and played to a draw in less than 48 hours.

Dowagiac went 1-1 at its own Chieftain Invitational as it blanked Cassopolis 8-0 and lost to Three Rivers 3-0.

On Friday night, Dowagiac and Bangor played to a 1-1 draw.

Kellyn Daly scored with less than seven minutes left to play to give Dowagiac a 1-1 draw in non-conference soccer Friday night.

Bangor scored the match’s only goal of the first half in the 16th minute.

Daly scored off an assist from Anayda Lucio in the 73rd minute.

Grace Younger had 16 saves for the Chieftains, who are now 0-1-1 on the year.

“A very nerve-racking, yet extremely exciting game to say the least,” Dowagiac coach Ryan Haines said. “Bangor has had our number the past two years, as they have defeated us 7-0 and 5-0 each year. This year we have nothing to lose and everything to gain. The confidence is there, the communication, the soccer knowledge, everything. Grace Younger played lights out for us and made some incredible saves, even took a shot to the face in the game.

“The youngsters stepped up too, and are only going to keep improving.”

Daly had three goals and an assist in the Chieftains’ 8-0 win over a short-handed Cassopolis squad in the opening game of the Chieftain Invitational.

Mara Nelson scored two goals and had two assists, while Cali Rank scored a goal and had an assist.

Also scoring for Dowagiac were Anayda Lucio and Katlyn Briney. Katie Hurrle added an assist.

Cassy Pflug had 20 saves for the Rangers.

Against Three Rivers, Dowagiac trailed 2-0 at halftime and gave up a third goal on a penalty kick in the second half of the championship match.

Younger made five saves for the Chieftains.
