Germantown kickers part of scoreless ties

April 28, 2009

The defense remains stout for the Germantown girls soccer team, but the offense needs work.

That became clear as the Warhawks played two scoreless ties with Milwaukee Lutheran and Wauwatosa West.

"We have established ourselves as a very organized, strong defensive team that does not allow many easy chances or goals," Germantown coach Steve Sperl said. "While this is a fantastic trait that all good teams must possess, we have to start finishing the chances we get or we will never get to that next level we are striving for."

The tie with host Lutheran was especially frustrating as the Warhawks had a 14-1 shots-on-goal advantage. Maggie Marks had three saves in the tilt with visiting West on April 24.

Germantown has given up only three goals all season, but has only scored three times.

Germantown (2-2-3) will host Appleton Xavier at 5 p.m. Saturday, May 2.
