Lady Bobcats Caught in Tornado

The Lees-McRae College Lady Bobcats soccer team traveled to King College Monday afternoon for a non-conference match up against the Lady Tornado. The home side would pull out a 2-0 victory, evening the Lady Bobcats record at 4-4 (1-1 CVAC).

Mary Alice Rowney got the home side on the board first, crossing a ball to teammate Jena Rickard who fooled Lady Bobcats keeper Anita Hekman (pictured) when she connected with a header for the 1-0 lead in the 30th minute. Rickard then assisted on a goal by Lindsey Cobb from 12 yards out, five minutes later. The Lady Tornado continued to press the Lady Bobcats defense in the second half but were unable to solve Hekman a third time.

The Lady Bobcats will host Carolinas-Virginia Athletic Conference rival Coker College at Tate Field, Saturday at 2:00p.m.
