Nooksack Valley soccer shows positive growth in loss to Sedro

The scoreboard didn’t show it, but Nooksack Valley High School coach Kevin Rus was quite pleased with what he saw from his team in a season-opening 7-0 loss to visiting Sedro-Woolley on Wednesday, Sept. 7.

“It was really positive from our perspective,” Rus said. “We’re still getting girls practice-eligible. ... I had some freshmen that had to play positions they had never played before. They’re still learning the game. They held up pretty good, though we had lapses.”

Rus singled out Sabrina Macy, who played midfield and filled in at goalkeeper; Chloe Cownman, who put some shots on goal; and Jo Kingman, who played strong defense.

The Pioneers return to action Monday, Sept. 12, against Bellingham at Phillips 66 Soccer Park.
