EDINBORO — Corry’s girls found out that there are two halves to a soccer match.
The Lady Beavers were outstanding in the first 40 minutes at General McLane yesterday, playing to a 0-0 deadlock at halftime.
But McLane registered four goals after the break and won the Region 4 contest, 4-0.
“This was a big improvement from last year’s game,” said coach Gary Hogue, Corry losing 12-0 at GM in 2008. “Our defense was amazing.
“Rachel McCray had her best game of the season,” he noted. “Kat (Pope) recorded 24 saves.”
Most of them were from in close.
McLane’s Roberta Alberts snapped the scoreless match with a goal at 33:59 on the second-half scoreboard.
Besides McCray, Jaushlynne Anderson, Brianna Sulecki, Autumn Sterling and Sarah Zaczkiewicz helped support Pope on defense.
McLane improved to 3-2 overall and 2-1 in the league, Corry now 1-4 and 1-2, respectively.
“Our junior varsity fought hard in a close game, as well,” said coach Hogue. “Our confidence is up going into tomorrow’s game against Iroquois.”
That away game has a 12:30 p.m. varsity start.
Corry 0 0 — 0
General McLane 0 4 — 4
Goals: GM — Alberts 2, Schaefer, Timko.
