CAPS GETS BACK TO WINNING WITH 1-0 VICTORY OVER ENLOE
The Broughton women's soccer team returned to the home pitch Wednesday evening for a Cap 8 fixture against the Eagles from Enloe High School. The Caps were coming off a humbling defeat Monday at the feet of Wakefield High School. The Caps dominated possession in the first half and sophomore Sarah Grace Lasso provided a little excitement with two shots on goal, but was unable to find the back of the net. Sophomore Kelly Ann Evans was thought to have opened the scoring for the Caps in the 51st minute, but her goal was called back due to an offside call. One minute later sophomore Emma Willard tried to open the scoring for Broughton, but her shot caromed off the near side goal post. The Caps kept pressing and in the 56th minute sophomore midfielder Lily Schneider slotted a quality pass to a streaking Willard who beat the goal keeper and put Broughton on the scoreboard. Willard's goal would conclude the scoring on the night as Enloe fought hard to keep the ball out of the net and find an equalizer, but were denied by junior 'keeper Allie Cutler and the Caps' defense. Broughton's record is now 3-2 and 2-2 in Cap 8 play. The Caps return to action tonight when 5th ranked J. T. Hoggard High School from Wilmington (6-0-2)comes to town to test the Caps and the Cap 8's metal. There will not be a JV game and the varsity game kicks off at 6:30.
