The Lady Patriots Soccer Team defeated the St. Mary of the Woods Pomeroys 1-0 in a match at Nelson County High School Saturday afternoon.
In a match marked by strong defense from both teams, the Patriots controlled play for most of the match but were only able to notch one goal for the afternoon. Emily Caras made a strong dribbling run late in the first half, beating two Pomeroy players and shot from just outside the penalty box to finish what would prove to be the winning score.
Just before halftime, Ashley Lazaros' free kick would carom off the crossbar and keep the Pomeroys in the game. Several Patriot chances were turned away by the Pomeroy Goalkeeper in the second half, while two Pomeroy chances were stopped by Patriot Goalkeeper Lindsey Vinson late in the game to preserve the win.
The Patriots will be in action next on Tuesday, September 20th versus Trevecca Nazarene University at 3:00 pm. The Patriot Men will play Trevecca at 5pm. Both games will be played at Nelson County High School.
