Girls soccer earns tie against Dust Devils

Tied games usually end with dissatisfaction, but when the Bucks had to fight to earn one Saturday, they were pleased.

The varsity girl’s soccer coach Jose Sapien said, “I was satisfied with the tie, the girls played well.”

Dayton had several shots-on-goal in the first half, but Lowry goalkeeper Ashley Okuma turned them away. Dayton scored in the 25th minute of the game and Lowry quickly countered with its own shot, but the ball was deflected by Dayton’s keeper.

Lowry had other opportunities to tie the score including a penalty shot. But the attempt by midfielder Becky Noonan sailed wide of the goal.

In the 20th minute of the second half, the Bucks tied the score when Kirstie Ingle slipped the ball by the Dayton goalie.

Dayton added the go-ahead goal to make the score 2-1, but Lowry battled back to even the score.

Sapien said that the girls played much better than in their last game and expect the final games to go well.
