KELLOGG –– The Kellogg Wildcats soccer team opened up their season with a 2-1 win over their Intermountain League rivals the Bonners Ferry Badgers at Teeters Field.

The Wildcats got on the board early after Taeya Sheppard punched a free kick through a line of Badgers near the 30 minute mark of the first half.

The game settled into a back and forth affair with the Wildcats controlling the ball for the majority of it, including several shots on the goal.

Later in the first half Lora Allred scored a goal on a breakaway to put the Wildcats up 2-0 as the half wrapped up.

Kellogg held steady until late in the game when the Badgers finally got themselves on the board, but the Wildcats would tighten back up defensively to hold on to their season opening win.

Following the game coach Craig Petersen was pleased with his team’s efforts and is welcoming the challenge of them playing back to back games.

“This was a really positive start to the season. I'm sure there was nerves, so good to get that first game out of the way,” Petersen said. “Kellogg and Bonners Ferry are always competitive games. We had a really a solid team effort at all positions and it was good to see some first year players step up and make some good passes and play solid defense. We get a 24 hour rest and we'll play again tomorrow (Wednesday) against Grangeville. That should be a good test of both mental and physical fitness.”

Kellogg will be at home next week when they take on Timberlake at 5 p.m. at Teeters Field.
