Coming off an impressive 2012 campaign where the Warriors competed in the Division III state championship game, Ontario's girls soccer team was looking for a fast start to the new season. It would take nearly 77 minutes of action to accomplish that goal, but the Warriors would pick up a win in front of the home crowd on their opening night.

With the jump to Division II this season, Ontario head coach Larry Atkinson decided to beef up his veteran squads schedule. Which is why the Warriors began their 2013 campaign with the much bigger Akron St Vincent St Mary.

Despite being the small dog in the fight, Ontario dominated the ball throughout the contest and put a number of quality shots on goal. But the Irish were able to keep the Warriors off the board for nearly the entire 80 minutes of regulation.

Then with just 3:36 remaining in the contest, junior midfielder Allie Atkinson played a beautiful corner kick and senior forward Mackenna Papst finished it with a header into the net.

"We knew sooner or later we'd get a goal off our corner kicks." Papst says. "We have a great corner kick taker and we all attack the ball really well."

Ontario would hold off any Irish threat in the closing minutes to secure a 1-0 victory and get the Warriors off to a 1-0 start to their season. Something both Papst and Atkinson agreed will be a big confidence booster for the team moving forward.

The next test for the Warriors will come Monday against the Madison rams.
