ERIE — Though they had a penalty kick stopped, Corry’s girls soccer team registered its first win of the season after three losses, the Lady Beavers outlasting Central Tech 2-1 at Veterans’ Stadium in Region 4 play.
Corry scored quickly in the match on the fast A-Turf surface and made the 1-0 lead standup through halftime.
Keeper Shelby Liller did a nice job, aided by the play of Sarah Zaczkiewicz in the middle of the defense.
Jaush Anderson and Autumn Sterling also played well defensively, as did all of the fullbacks.
April Sterling had Corry’s first goal, Meghan Goska with the second.
Both had several good chances in the first half, along with Thea Weibel who handled the corner kicks.
