Kankakee Valley was up 3-0 with less than two minutes left on the clock against Boone Grove when Hannah Wilder was tracking a ball up the sideline that was ruled out of bounds.
Wilder threw her arms up and questioned the official, "Are you kidding me?"
That competitive spirit, regardless of the situation in front of her, is what has made the Kougars senior one of the top goal scorers in the area.
"I just like (soccer) because you can be physical," Wilder said. "It's not like volleyball or another sport where you cannot hit anyone. I like being able to physical and aggressive."
"I guess that's just the way I am."
But Wilder isn't just a brute who forces her will upon opponents. She's also got ball skills and the ability to finesse a play to give herself an opportunity to score. That's led to 16 goals through 10 games for Times No. 3 K.V.
"She does a great job getting good touches on the run and inside the box, which helps her score at a high clip," coach Alex Conklin said. "Since she can do several things well and score in different ways, it's hard for defenses to stop her."
Wilder skipped her junior season at Kankakee Valley, choosing instead to play for a club team that finished fourth in the nation and exposed her to college coaches around the country.
She verbally committed to play her college soccer at Drake in January.
"When Hannah came back, there was an adjustment that the team went through. It was different having someone back on that wasn't on the team the year before," Conklin said. "The biggest adjustment was having someone on the field that is as vocal as she can be. In the end, everyone has adjusted pretty well and meshed well on the field together."
Wilder is just part of a stacked Kougars squad that has eyes on some trophies once the postseason rolls around. K.V. is a perfect 10-0 and has outscored opponents 48-3.
"On and off the field, I've been telling them 'We've got this. We've got this. We've just got to believe in ourselves,'" Wilder said. "It's our last year. We have to get a run here."
"We have a lot of talent and if we can get it together, I think we can do really big things."
