Women's Soccer-Caps Lose Hard Fought Match to Leesville
The Caps women's soccer team hosted the # 6 ranked Leesville Road Pride at 6:30 on Wednesday, March 13th. The Pride controlled most of the first 40 minutes and scored early with a beautiful strike by Mary Kate Bowers from just beyond the right side of the 18 yard box into the far post net. Leesville Road went up 2-0 before the half ended on a goal by Bailey Riggsbee. After the halftime break, the Caps came out strong and pressured the Pride to start the second half. Leesville Road was whistled for a handball in the box on a strike by Lily Schneider. Senior captain Caroline Brown, who is headed to Villanova University next year, converted the penalty kick drawing the Caps closer at 2-1. The Caps continued to press late into the game, but were unable to find the tying goal. Broughton drops to 2-4 (1-3). The Caps will be in action Monday at Enloe at 6:30.
