Warrior girls remain undefeated with 3-2 win over Hodgdon

FORT KENT, Maine — The Fort Kent Community High School girls soccer team remained perfect on the season following a narrow 3-2 victory over Hodgdon Thursday afternoon.

Julia Cyr scored two Fort Kent goals, both assisted by Payten Voisine. Warrior Hannah Lovley also scored a goal with an assist from Lily Werntgen. 

The Warriors are now 5-0 on the season.

Hodgdon’s Delaney Little registered both goals for the Hawks, with assists by Meghan Peters and Sydney Rockwell. 

“You guys lost by one goal to probably the best team in The County, so good job,” Hodgdon coach Rob Smith told his team after the match. 

The Hawks (1-2-1) proved to be a challenge for the undefeated Warrior team — a perennial powerhouse in Class C North. 

“It’s a humbling win and there is a lot of reflection that will come of it,” Fort Kent coach Doug Cyr said. “We have to give Hodgdon some credit. They had a two-and-a-half hour bus ride and they came hungry. They showed up hard.” 

“They played very well; it was a good team effort for them,” Smith said of the Hodgdon girls. “Fort Kent is very organized. They have a plan.” 

Fort Kent goalkeeper Mia Voisine had 3 saves on 5 shots. Hodgdon goalkeeper Madison Smith blocked 12 saves on 15 shots.

The Warriors will next take on the Presque Isle Wildcats, Wednesday, Sept. 29 in Fort Kent. The teams met up earlier this season in Presque Isle. 

Although the Warriors managed to shut out the Wildcats 2-0 during that game, Cyr said his team will need to fight hard during the rematch. 

“We’ve got to come out strong and play the soccer Fort Kent is known for the rest of the season,” he said. “Any team is beatable.”
