Hoban Wins Battle of the Knights
September 26, 2013Archbishop Alter High School
The Lady Knights of Alter fell to the Lady Knights of Akron Archbishop Hoban in Akron by a score of 2-1 on Saturday afternoon in a quality girls’ soccer matchup. Hoban came into the game undefeated with a record of 9-0-1. Alter falls to 6-4. The Alter Knights started the game strong and had some promising scoring opportunities throughout the first half. The game remained scoreless, however, until a Hoban forward broke free near midfield and made a nice charge to the goal under pressure to finish with only 3 seconds left on the clock.
Hoban scored early in the second half to take a 2-0 lead, but the Knights continued to play hard and finally registered a goal as Senior captain Avalee Hagerty found Junior Kyly Borton who turned and finished nicely to cut the deficit to 1 goal with a little over 10 minutes remaining. Alter kept the pressure on Hoban throughout the remainder of the game and held Hoban scoreless, but could not even the match. The Alter Knights now face a tough Ursuline team at 7:00 pm on Monday September 23rd at home and then travel to Purcell Marion for a league matchup on Wednesday the 25th.
