RV tops Lady Bruins, 2-1

The Bruins completely controlled the match in all categories except the final tally in the 2-1 loss. LHS had five corners to one for RV.  LHS had 15 shots on goal to  RV’s three.

Most of the match was played at the RV side of the field, however, the Bruins were unable to find the back of the net.

Lena Pringle, with an assist from Sarah DeVenny at the 15-minute mark of the second half, tallied.

The Lady Bruins pushed hard to get the game winner, but were unable to finish with a win.

“There are matches like these sometimes where one team completely dominates, but is unable to finish. RV used its opportunities wisely and attacked successfully when we were pushing hard for the winner.  Sometimes when you are in a total offensive mode transitions by opponents catch you and such was the case tonight,” LHS coach Bo Sylvia said.

Sylvia noted he was proud of the effort of Frances Whitesides, Lena Pringle, Sarah DeVenny, Morgan Gardner, Mallory Blackmon, Ashley Cauthen, Mary Beth White, and Tarah Tipton for their hustle and determination.

“If the effort and intensity continues, good results will be around the corner,” Sylvia said.
