CAPS OPEN SEASON WITH VICTORY!
Coach Kelly Mastin's Broughton women's soccer team opened the 2015 campaign with a 1-0 victory over a previously unbeaten Holly Springs Golden Hawks side. The Caps took the pitch after two weeks of weather delayed try-outs and cancellation of games against Athens Drive High School and East Chapel Hill High School, but the Caps supporters could not tell that the delay had any effect on the Caps, as they took it to the Golden Hawks from the start. Broughton possessed much of the first half and pressured the Holly Springs defense in the attacking third. In the 31st minute junior Sarah Grace Lasso connected with freshman Meredith Brown who cracked a beautiful shot from approximately 36 yards past the Golden Hawks' keeper into the ole' onion bag for Broughton's first goal of the season! The Caps took the lead into halftime and came out and continued to possess the ball and pressure the defense in the second 40 minutes of play. Broughton controlled the defensive third anchored by senior Allie Cutler in goal to complete victory. The Caps return to the pitch on Monday when the Cougars of Wake Forest High School come to town. JV kicks off at 4:30 with Varsity to follow at 6:30.
