Although it didn’t win, the Mathews High School varsity girls’ soccer team sure gave West Point a fight on Monday night, falling to last year’s VHSL Class 1 state semifinalists by a 3-2 margin in a game at MHS.
West Point opened the scoring, followed by two MHS goals before halftime. The Pointers came out strong in the second half and got two break-away goals to earn the win.
Hailey Denkinger had five shots on goal, including the first two goals in the history of the Lady Devils’ soccer program. Goal keeper Trinity Reynolds had 18 saves, while Adelle Hudgins had 10 intercepts and four steals defensively.
In other recent action, the MHS girls were shut out by the visiting Northumberland Indians on Friday, 7-0.
Coach William Berg said he is pleased with his girls’ continued improvement and remains optimistic for Wednesday night’s match at Middlesex High School. That will be the last game before Spring Break; the girls return to action on April 11 at Christchurch School.
