The Lowry varsity girls soccer team lost a tough game against Elko. The girls played hard but couldn’t pull out the win, losing 3-0.
Elko started the game with a goal in the 19th minute on a perfectly executed corner kick. It didn’t take long for Elko to score again as they added their second goal four minutes later.
A controversial no-call happened in the 35th minute as Lowry goalkeeper Savannah Ingram leaped up to stop the ball from going in the net and was plowed over by an Elko player. Despite the hit, Ingram was still able to hold onto the ball.
It took a while for another goal to take place, but Elko scored again in the 75th minute as the ball sneaked past Ingram’s fingertips into the bottom corner. Lowry had multiple opportunities to score a goal but was continuously stopped by the Elko goalkeeper.
The girls have a shot at redemption as they play Pershing county on October 1 at 1 p.m. at Lowry.
