Lady Lions Soccer lose season opener
St. Edwards defeat the Lady Lions in this seasons opening game 3 to 2. The story of the game was effort level by both teams as the game went back and forth.
St. Edwards scored first in the 5th minute. The St. Eds forward got loose on the left side of the field and launched a nice shot over the head of freshmen keeper Grace Hoscheidt to take the early lead. The lions pressed St. Eds for much of the half getting several opporunities and finally cashed in, when Soph. forward Alesa Fasone intercepted a clearing attempt by the St. Edwards Keeper and sent a shot right back into the goal.
In 43rd minute coming out of the half time, the Lady Lions offense did good job of attacking St. Eds and Alexa got goal number 2, when Sr. Captain Frankie Wagoner took a deep throw in, and got to Alexa, who was inside the 18 in front of the goal. Alexa made a great play heading the ball past the keeper, giving Lisle the 2 - 1 lead.
It was short lived as St. Eds scored just a minute later, when the Lions defense failed to clear the ball out of thier zone. St. Eds took advantage and tied up the game. The game stayed 2 to 2 for most of the rest of the 2nd half, until a long ball from St. Eds mid field got past the defense and Grace came out of the goal to make a play. However the St. Eds forward got there just a step sooner and was able to get around Grace and score the game winner.
The Lions made it intersting in the last 4 minutes getting 3 great scoring chances but were not able to convert, preserving the win for St. Eds.
The Lady Lions take on Timothy Christian Monday at 4:30 at Wilde field.
