Plymouth girls soccer opens year with win at Argos

August 17, 2012

ARGOS — Plymouth head coach Chuck DeWitt wanted to use Thursday night’s opener at Argos as a forecast for the 2012 season.
The signs looked good.
Plymouth’s girls soccer team used its speed to outshoot the host Lady Dragons 17-7, Allie Wright created three goals for the Rockies — an unassisted strike to put the visitors on the board just 10 seconds in and two own-goals — and Plymouth claimed a 4-0 shutout of area rival Argos on the road.
“It was our opener, and we really didn’t know what kind of team we had,” said DeWitt. “This was a game to show us where we needed to play this season.”
