BANNER ELK, N.C. – After scoring three goals in its first five games of October, the Lees-McRae College women's soccer team's offense came alive in a big way Wednesday with four second-half goals to knock off conference rival King University, 4-0. The Bobcats improve to 6-10-0 and 6-4 in league play with the victory.
Lena Lagille and Cheyenne Warrick both tallied a goal and an assist in the win. Langille assisted the team's first goal from Timber Powell in the 59th minute and scored one of her own in 71st minute. Langille's goal was assisted by Warrick, and she scored her own goal at 75:56 from Emma McGovern. Kennedy Masse scored the other goal for LMC.
Goalkeeper Alexis Feely picked up her sixth win on the season and made four stops in the win. It marked the sixth shutout this season for Feely. Feely now is alone in eighth place on the program's list for career shutouts with 11.
The Bobcats will close out their regular season Saturday at home against Emmanuel (GA). If LMC can beat the Lions, it will lock up the No. 4 seed and a first round home playoff game for the Conference Carolinas Tournament. That game would take place Tuesday evening in Banner Elk. Saturday's game, which will also be Senior Day for the team's four seniors, is scheduled for a 2 p.m. kickoff from Tate Field.
