Johnson's OT goal lifts Richmond over Rangely

... In the extra time, the Bobcats finally found their way, getting a goal from Abby Johnson off a rebound for a 1-0 victory and a win to start the season.

The graduation of standout players from last year’s state finalist seemed to play into Richmond’s struggles to score Saturday. The Bobcats outshot the Lakers, 19-3, and had a 4-1 edge in corner kicks, but only a handful of those shots were solid scoring opportunities.

“We are still sorting it out and knew the goals were going to come hard this year,” Richmond coach Troy Kendrick said. “Having some young kids on the field, some jitters, and Rangeley being stacked in the back made it tough to score today. It can be tough to unlock that.” ... ly/2193646

Richmond, Old Orchard play to a scoreless tie
Richmond owns much of the possession but is stymied by the lack of a finishing touch.

...Richmond (5-3-2) held Old Orchard (5-2-2) to one shot on target – which came well before halftime – and had the best chances to produce what would have been a winning goal in the final five minutes of regulation or overtime.

But Richmond put just four of its 17 shots on target.

“We’re still searching,” said Coach Troy Kendrick, whose team lost 2-0 at Old Orchard earlier this season.

“I was pleased with this effort. I thought we outpossessed them, outshot them, outplayed them for 90 minutes. We just need some finishing. I don’t think we’ve ever struggled so much to finish.” ... eless-tie/
