Lady Knights Lose Another Tough One
September 12, 2013Archbishop Alter High School
The Alter Lady Knights soccer team suffered another tough loss to a talented McNicholas team by a score of 3-2 Wednesday evening in Cincinnati. The Rockets scored the first goal of the game and took a 1-0 lead into halftime. The Knights responded with inspired play to start the second half and scored twice in the first 20 minutes of the half. Senior captain Katie Grunder scored on a nice goal with a wicked shot into the left side of the net. Junior Kyly Borton then broke free on the left wing and created an opportunity in front of the goal for senior captain Avalee Hagerty to finish and put the Knights up 2-1.
The Rockets however scored twice on the Knights in the last fifteen minutes of play, the first on a corner kick which snuck in the bottom corner of the goal after being tipped by Junior goalkeeper Abby Helm, and the second on a long perfectly placed shot into the upper corner. The Knights had a few chances to tie in the end, but it was not meant to be. The Knights return to action at home against a quality Bellbrook team on Saturday, September 14th at 2:00 pm.
