On October 8, Lowry faced off against a very aggressive Battle Mountain team but managed to pull out a 4-0 win. Lowry had trouble keeping control of the ball in the early stages of the game due to Battle Mountain’s constant pressure.
Sydnie Sundahl started the scoring in the 18th minute by weaving past the Longhorn defenders and sneaking the ball past the goalkeeper It didn’t take much longer for Lowry to get another goal as Monique Rodriguez received a great pass from Sundahl and easily put the ball through the net.
Lowry’s pressure on Battle Mountain led to Battle Mountain not attempting a single shot on goal in the first half. Lowry quickly started scoring again in the second half as they sneaked the ball past the goalkeeper’s outstretched arms.
A scary moment occurred in the second half as Lowry’s Alyssa Jones slid for the ball and accidentally cleated the Longhorn keeper in the face as she dove for the ball. The keeper still managed to stay in the game but it didn’t take much longer to get the last goal of the game in the 67th minute.
Despite the win, Lowry coach, Chris Entwistle wasn’t too happy saying, “We came out a little flat. It seems like we’re losing steam at the end of the season, which is never a good sign.”
The ladies face off against White Pine on October 15 and coach Entwistle is confident that they will pull out another win saying, “We tied White Pine 0-0 on their turf but we were in control of the ball for the whole game but we just couldn’t put the ball through the net.”
