SPARTANBURG, S.C. – The Lees-McRae College women's soccer team won on Saturday against Converse, with a final score of 1-0 from Spartanburg.
The Bobcats came out applying a healthy amount of pressure on Converse, taking 13 cracks at goal as a team. Seven of those 13 came on goal and required attention from the opposing keeper. Lees-McRae was also able to spread the ball around as six different players supplied the 13 shots.
The match was tight the entire 90 minutes and the game was forced into overtime. It was here that the Bobcats put the game away. Pali Smith broke away from her defender and put a square ball back across the face of goal. Ashley Herndon was making a run and was there for the easy tap in to give the Bobcats the win.
Hope Sanborn played well again today as she was able to collect her second clean sheet of the season and make all nine saves on the day.
Lees-McRae will return to action next Wednesday when they travel to King. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m.
