Nat Lankster knocked it home to give BHS a 2-1 lead and it was the game winner as well. The Lady Bucs added some insurance as Jill Fuqua headed in a corner kick with eleven minutes left in the game.
Coach Cooke told BA.com, “(I’m) proud of the girls for battling back in the second half. We’ve got to find a way to come out like that from the beginning. Message has to be clear to them that our focus is a full 80 minute game against White House on Thursday.”
