Tuesday night the Lady Warriors played Paint Branch to add to their win column, for their 7th victory in a row. The Warriors worked diligently to maintain possession and create the break away opportunities to attack Paint Branch’s goal. After a 1st half time out, the Warriors settled down and got in their groove of their text book passing game. The scoring opportunities presented themselves. Elana Winters maneuvered the ball from the right side of the field and crossed it into the shooting circle. Hope Tippery flicked in the loose ball in front of the goal for the first score.
In the second half the Warriors were down a player from an injury, however, this didn’t stop them from creating a counter attack run from mid field which was started by Kayla Larsen with the strong push pass to Hannah Lees. She in turn dribbled through defenders with out loosing a step to connect at the top of the circle to the forwards. The shot rebounded and the scramble for the ball was won by Hope, Tippery who snuck in the 2nd goal of the game.
Paint Branch came close to scoring but the strong defense led by Capt Nia Zagami, Megan Carmody Rose Gottchalk and Ella Joilet and Alison Keller were able to smother the attempts.
Will the Warriors continue their winning streak? Will they end the season without a loss? Only time will tell. Come out and support the Warriors as they play their last season game vs Blair at Blair today at 5:30pm.
