The Lees-McRae College Bobcats soccer team traveled to Erskine College to battle the Flying Fleet in Carolinas-Virginia Athletic Conference action Saturday afternoon, returning home with a 1-1 draw. The tie gives the Bobcats a 7-5-3 record, (4-2-2 CVAC).
CVAC leading scorer Berin Boracic scored his 11th goal of the season in the 8th minute to give the Bobcats the early 1-0 lead. Nathan Wall placed a diagonal ball behind the Erskine defenders giving Boracic the opportunity to out run his man and get to the free ball. Boracic dribbled around Erskine goalkeeper Josh Veal and made no mistake from the tough angle.
Erskine battled back and scored the equalizer in the 76th
minute. Franz Destin broke free down the right side and sent a
driven ball into the box that John Michael Leppert was able to head
on goal in stride hitting the post. The rebound would come right
back to Leppert, who buried the second attempt into the right
corner of the net.
The Bobcats will return to CVAC action Wednesday October 18th when they travel to the defending CVAC Champion Belmont Abbey Crusaders. Kick off is set for 3:00p.m.
