Dragon girls soccer falls to Cathedral
August 21, 2013By Andrew Smith of New Palestine High School
The New Palestine girls soccer team dropped a 3-0 decision on the road at Cathedral Wednesday evening.
The Dragons were able to mount some offensive surges, but were unable to put a score on the board. In net, Gabbi Pierson had a solid outing, including stopping a penalty kick.
"Our young team continues to improve with each game, rising to the challenge," NP coach Gina Fannin said." Our applause goes to our goalkeeper, Gabbi Pierson. She held her composure well and brilliantly saved a penalty kick tonight. Our defense held their line well, pulling the other team offsides numerous times. Our offense worked the ball well together and were able to mount several good attacks."
The Dragons are now 0-2 on the young season against two tough foes. They will host the New Palestine Invitational on Saturday.
Cathedral won the JV match 4-0.
