Tuesday, August 25th our Lady Golden Eagle’s Soccer team traveled to Seqautchie County High School to battle the Lady Indians. The scoring got started off early for the Lady Golden Eagles with a Penalty Kick taken by Savannah Engelbrecht after Caroline Biddle earned the PK while attacking into the 18 and getting fouled.
The barrage of goals continued back and forth between the two teams. Then in the final twenty minutes, the Lady Golden Eagles with the score in their favor at 6-4, decided to turn up the intensity. They went on to score four more goals with a strong whole team defensive effort to squelch any further rallies by Sequatchie Co.
The Game winning goal is credited to McKinley Tyson when she scored the team’s fifth goal (her 3rd of the evening) when she followed up her previous shot that bounced off the post and buried it in the back of the net.
◦ Goalie: Belle Mahan (3 saves)
◦ Savannah Engelbrecht (3 goals, 3 assists)
◦ McKinley Tyson (5 goals, 1 assist)
◦ Lauren Estes (1 goal, 1 assist)
◦ Abigail Corcoran (1 goal, 1 assist)
