GREENVILLE – The Lady Wave soccer team dropped a 12-0 Wednesday night MVL varsity soccer match to the visiting Vandalia-Butler Lady Aviators.

“It is definitely a work in progress,” said Greenville coach Samantha Grim. “I was telling the team earlier, we need to be coming to practice with a fire that can’t be deterred.”

The undefeated Lady Aviators wasted little time getting on the board with just 69 seconds of first half play to lead 1-0 and never look back.

Butler scored a total of six first half goals to lead 6-0 at the break with the final goal of the opening half coming with 1:32 on the clock.

Second half play had the visitors finding the back of the net with just 37-seconds of play on their way to a six goal second half while keeping Greenville off the board to win the MVL ladies soccer match by a 12-0 score.

With the win, the Lady Aviators remain undefeated on the season at 3-0 while the Lady Wave fall to 0-3 on the year. Butler is outscoring their opponents 23-4 and stand at 3-1 overall for the season with their lone loss coming in a season opening 3-2 loss to Chaminade Julienne.

“I appreciate Butler – I was talking to the Butler coach at the end,” Grim said. “He sees promise in us and I see it too. It’s just getting the girls to see it and pushing forwards towards it for a better outcome.”

Butler (3-0), Tippecanoe (3-0) and Troy (2-0) remain undefeated in the MVL Miami Division while Greenville and Piqua both have 0-3 records. Fairborn comes in at 3-0 in the MVL Valley Division followed by Xenia and Sidney with 1-1 records, Stebbins at 0-2 and West Carrollton an 0-3 mark.

“Even with injured, we still pulled out and gave it our best,” Gim said of the Lady Wave’s effort on the night.
