Broughton loses 4-1 to Heritage

The Caps suffered a 4-1 loss to Heritage Thursday night as they continued to struggle to convert scoring opportunities.

Playing with a strong wind at their back, the Huskies scored twice in the first half -- one off of a corner and one off a counter following a Broughton corner -- to take a 2-0 lead into the half.

The Caps came out strong to start the second half, but the Heritage keeper blocked a shot on a Broughton corner and a subsequent free kick by the Caps was wide left of the goal. Heritage, meanwhile, added to their tally with a third goal that drew protests from the Broughton bench that offsides should have been called.

Broughton got on the scoreboard in the 63rd minute when junior Lucy Krueger lofted a free kick into the box that junior Anne Lassiter Barnes was able to head over the outstretched hands of the Heritage keeper. But it took less than two minutes for the Huskies to respond with another goal, making the final score a 4-1 loss for the Caps.

The loss drops Broughton to 6-6 overall on the season and 3-5 in conference play with roughly half of the Cap 8 schedule remaining to be played.
