blank'/> Broughton Sports Update

Tuesday, March 17, 2015


Junior Emma Willard opened her account Monday night as the Broughton women's soccer team began the 2015 campaign 2-0 and began conference play 1-0 with a 3-0 defeat of Wake Forest High School.  Willard started what would end on the night as a "hat trick" in the 4th minute of play when she received a pass from fellow junior Sarah Grace Lasso and put her shot in the back of the net to put the Caps up 1-0.  Lasso was credited with the assist by official team statistics guru, Jeff Cutler. Willard was not done for the night and 4 minutes later, in the 8th minute, she received another pass from Lasso in the midfield and dribbled her way through the weak Cougar defense before firing in her second goal of the evening.  The Caps supporters thought Willard decided to share the wealth in the 30th minute when junior Julia Stephens slotted one in past the goal keeper, but the assistant referee thought differently, and flagged her offside.  The Caps continued the offensive attack in the second half while the Caps solid defense kept the Cougars at bay.  The Wake Forest goal keeper was busy throughout the night fending off the Caps and in 42nd minute stopped what was a sure goal off a well place Caps corner kick.  Finally, the Caps put the match out of reach in the 76th minute when Willard completed her night with her 3rd goal.  Senior goal keeper Allie Cutler kept her second clean sheet of the season.  The Caps, ranked 15th in this week's Eurosport 4A poll, welcome 7th ranked conference foe Leesville Road High School to campus Wednesday night.  As always, JV begins at 4:30 with the varsity clash set for a 6:30 kick-off.  Come out and support the Caps!
