Salem 0, Minerva 0
SALEM - The Salem Lady Quakers played to a scoreless tie with Minerva Wednesday, but that doesn't deter the outlook of head coach Travis Zeigler in any way. And according to Zeigler it won't deter his Lady Quakers squad any either.
"We were so close tonight," he said. "But win, lose, or tie, it doesn't matter as we move forward. We're ready for the next game."
Zeigler's team had Minerva's backs to the wall towards the tail end of the first half and even had a shot careen off the goal post.
But in a difficult Northeastern Buckeye Conference, and with a purposely stacked schedule, Zeigler knows his team is getting better with each game.
"They're doing everything they're supposed to be doing," he said. "They're just not getting the results yet. But if we continue to do the right thing, eventually the results will come. I think this group stands as good of a chance in the postseason as any I've had. We've played a tough schedule, and the girls are coming together at the right time."
For the Lady Quakers, Makenzie Schwartz had six saves in goal, and Zeigler said both Rylee and Raegan Meals played well defensively to help keep the Lady Lions off the scoreboard.
Salem (5-5-1) will host Howland Saturday. The J.V. game begins at 1 p.m.
