Lady Buc Soccer opens with WIN!!
The Lady Bucs hosted Green HIll HS, a new school that opened this year in Mt. Juliet. This was the Hawks first game ever in their school history. The Lady Bucs started off slow but built up steam throughout the contest and ended up with a 6-0 win.
Coach John Ferguson said, “Always good to open with a win. We struggled early to control the game, but found our feet in the second half. We still have a long way to go, but this is a good positive first step." Kess Tackett and Meg Fuqua got first half goals as the team led 2-0 at the half.
Hailey Burroughs knocked home a pair of goals in the second half and Nikki Pomohachi and Carson Sisk finished off the scoring for the Lady Bucs. Ferguson added, "She didn’t find the score sheet, but Kiara Berry was a force on her side of the field. Her pace caused problems for Green Hill all night and Carson’s (Sisk) impact on the game was fun to watch. Her goal was a beauty, and her cross to Nikki was textbook. Great debut for her, Delanie Nicholson, and our other freshmen.”
Next varsity game: Thursday August 19 @ White House, 7pm.
