Wildcats, TA Draw 1-1 In Girls Soccer

Friday, April 13 -- Rockbridge County High School and Turner Ashby finished level at 1-1 in a Valley District girls soccer match in Lexington.

Leslie Juarez put the Knights (3-3-2, 2-1-2 Valley) in front less than three minutes into the game. Maria Vargas would pull the Wildcats (3-2-1, 1-2-1) even on a free kick in the 61st minute.

Neither team scored in the 10 minutes of extra time. The Wildcats then won a penalty shootout 4-3, but the spot kicks will only count as a tiebreaker in the district standings.

Aly Huntsman totaled eight saves in the match for RC, while Meredith Bowers recorded five stops for TA.

The Wildcats return to the pitch on Monday with a road contest against Waynesboro. Junior varsity action will begin at 5:30 p.m.
