Soccer: Caps fade away in second half.

Friday's home soccer match with Leesville Road was the best of times and it was the worst of times.  The Caps completely controlled the first half of the match and then came out in the second half lifeless, allowing the Leesville Road team to take the conference win, 2-1.

The first half of the match, the Caps played great.  The team pushed into the attacking third as a group, made runs, made passes and scored.  The first goal was scored by Brian Haines.  Brian was one of two attackers available to receive the serve from Lassiter Tollison.  Multiple attackers were in the attacking third much of the half.  The result was lots of opportunities, but only the one goal.  The half ended with the Caps up 1-0.

Leesville came out energized after the half and was able to keep the ball in their attacking third.  It was only a matter of time before Fernando Castellanos  and Brandon Arostegui scored.  Playing with a 2-1 deficit, the Caps played with a greater sense of urgency, but were unable to get the tying goal.

This result leaves Broughton 0-2 in league while Leesville is now 2-0 in the conference.  Come out to Broughton to support the Caps as they go for their first conference victory Monday at 6:30pm against Wake Forest-Rolesville.
