CAPS WOMEN'S SOCCER STARTS SEASON 2-0
Yesterday's beautiful early Spring weather meant the Caps women's soccer team was able to play a game, something it hadn't been able to do since February 27, 2014.  Broughton's women did not look rusty at all and came away from Trentini Stadium in Wake Forest with a 4-0 victory over the Cougars.  The Caps opened the contest aggressively and got on the scoreboard early when sophomore Kelly Ann Evans capitalized off a shot from Emma Willard that deflected off the goal post in the 10' to score her second goal of the season.  The attack continued when sophomore Sarah Grace Lasso collected her second goal of the campaign in the 16' when she one-touched a corner kick from Allison Gupton to put the Caps up 2-0.  As Wake Forest's frustration mounted, senior Annika Meulink found the back of the net in the 23', again taking advantage of Willard's second shot to deflect off the post for the night.  The Caps scored the final goal of the night in the 26' when senior Averill Payne scored off an assist from sophomore Julia Stevens.  The second half found the Caps playing a lot more defense with more exceptional play from junior 'keeper Allie Cutler, who earned her first clean sheet of the season.  Broughton returns to action, weather permitting, Wednesday night at Cap 8 rival #2 ranked Leesville Road High School (2-1-1).
