Lady Cyclones fall to THS

from staff reports

     Falling behind early to a strong Tennessee High Lady Vikings squad saw the Betsy Lady Cyclones try to forge a late rally. It would be to no avail however, as THS took a 3-nil first half lead enroute to a 5-0 whitewashing of Elizabethton.
     "We ran into a good 3-A team," said EHS coach Bill McClay. "We gave up a goal early and kind of fell back on our heels a little bit. In spurts we played well, but I think we were also afraid to make a mistake so we never really attacked."
     The Vikings got first half goals from Terry Broglio at the 3-minute mark, while Katelin Carswell tallied at the 25:00 mark and Alex Lyons closed out the first half with a score at the 32:00 mark.
     "To win this we would have to play at the top of our game," McClay said. "THS is very good technically. They cross the field with the ball well, and if we had not let them score early we may have been able to build some confidence and say "We can play with them", but it didn't happen."
     The second half saw Broglio score her ninth goal of the season to stake Tennessee High to a four-goal lead and Allison Hodge scored late to close out the scoring.
     EHS falls to 6-6 overall after this non-region match and will face Daniel Boone at Brown-Childress Stadium on Thursday night, with time of the match set for 7 p.m.
