BROWN STRIKES FOR CAPS' WIN
Broughton women's soccer team traveled to Heritage on Wednesday evening for the last regular season Cap 8 match. The first half saw a "battle royale" as the Caps and the physical Huskies played to a nil-nil score at halftime. The second half saw much of the same from Heritage who celebrated Senior Night at halftime. However, as the full moon rose over the pitch, Senior Captain Caroline Brown found the back of the net on a beautiful 36 yard free kick strike to put the Caps up 1-0. The Caps managed a few other chances with a header from Sarah Grace Lasso off a corner kick deflecting off the cross bar, and Emma Willard arguably due a penalty kick after being grabbed from behind and pulled down in the box in the last minute off action. The Caps finish the conference regular season 7-7 and tied for fourth place with Wakefield. They improve on the campaign to 9-8 and travel out of conference tonight to Holly Springs for a 6:30 kick-off. Broughton opens the Cap 8 tournament Monday night against Wakefield, location to be determined.
