CAPS vs. EAGLES - PART I
The Broughton women's soccer team traveled the 4.29 miles it takes to get to William G. Enloe Magnet High School on Thursday evening with Greg Fishel's ominous weather forecast in the back of their minds. The "Fish" would not disappoint and neither would the Caps in the 24 minutes and 51 seconds of soccer they played. In that brief time before lightning rolled in, the Caps managed to put 3 goals on the scoreboard and hold the Eagles at nil. Without starting line-up introductions and our beloved Star Spangled Banner, in order to try to beat the impending storm, junior Emma Willard thought she'd get things going early, as well, striking first in the 4th minute from the left side just inside the 18 yard box. She wasn't finished either, as she received a pass from distance from senior defender Carson Taylor in the 6th minute to put one past the keeper from the right side. Junior Sarah Grace Lasso tried to get in on the action in the 9th minute, but her header from the center of the 18 sailed just over the cross bar. The Caps were a little shaken in the 13th minute when an Eagles player plowed over senior goal keeper Allie Cutler. After a brief stop in the action, junior Lily Schneider played a nice ball to a streaking freshman Taylor Sutter who collected her second goal of the campaign in the 22nd minute. Shortly, thereafter, the thunderstorm gave the Eagles the relief they needed when the game was stopped due to lightning. Stayed tuned for the reschedule date. The Caps will return to action on their home pitch when the Heritage High School Huskies come to Broughton Monday night, April 13th, at 4:30(JV) and 6:30(V).
