Defiance’s Carlee Smiddy (right) and Kenton’s Lexi Wetherill (14) battle for possession during Western Buckeye League action at Fred J. Brown Stadium in Defiance on Monday. The Bulldogs and Wildcats battled to a 1-1 tie.

Defiance was able to strike first at Fred J. Brown Stadium, but Kenton hit an equalizer with 15 minutes to go as the Bulldogs played to a one-all tie with Kenton in WBL girls soccer.

Freshman Lindsay Roth knocked in her first career to goal to start the scoring.

“Our girls battled hard,” said Defiance coach Rafael Manriquez. “We scored with about 25 minutes left, but they were able to hit the equalizer with about 15 minutes to go. (It) was not the result we wanted. Kenton came in 6-1. We competed with a good team and hopefully that will give us some momentum.”

Defiance returns to action Thursday in the WBL at home against Elida.
