Caps Women's Soccer Opens Season with Victory!

On a cold February evening, the Broughton women's soccer team traveled to Athens Drive for its season opener and after 80 minutes of soccer walked off the pitch with a 3-1 victory.  The game started off fairly even with neither side creating many scoring opportunities.  In the 27th minute, the Jaguars went ahead 1-0 when a Daria Draovitch (#5) free kick deflected off the Caps' wall and into the back of the net just out of the reach of goalkeeper Allie Cutler.  A nice gift from the Caps to Draovitch who was celebrating her 16th birthday!  Athens Drive's lead held through halftime.

Broughton came out determined in the second half and within five minutes got the equalizer when, after an Allison Gupton throw-in, Emma Willard made a short pass from her position near the goal post to Kelly Ann Evans who slotted in the goal.  Five minutes later, Sarah Grace Lasso netted the game winner when she made a run down the center of the field, took a pass from Magen Colgan, drew the Jaguar keeper out and took a low shot for the goal.  The Caps had to hunker down and withstand a furious rally by Athens Drive before Emma Willard opened her account for the 2014 season when she snatched Broughton's third goal of the night from the non-conference opponent with just seconds remaining.  The Caps return to action on Monday, March 3, when they travel to Angier, yes, Angier, for a match at Harnett Central with JV kick-off at 4:30 and varsity at 6:30.


The 2014 Broughton women's soccer season kicks off tonight with out-of-conference JV and Varsity games at Athens Drive High School at 4:30 and 6:30.  Please come out and support the Caps as they start down the road to the State tournament!
