WBC Lady Eagles Soccer makes history with draw against Harris-Stowe

Posted:

From Williams Baptist College

A 2-2 draw was the final result of the Lady Eagles soccer match against Harris-Stowe on Saturday. This marked the first time that the Williams Baptist College women forced a draw in a contest that gained their first points of the season. This was a fitting score in a contest which saw two periods and two overtimes come to pass without any team gaining a decisive advantage.
 
The Lady Eagles were down 1-0 early in the first period against the Hornets. Presley Owen found Reagan Raper, who touched the ball past the keeper for her first goal of the season. The equalizing goal came in the 29th minute for the Stuttgart, Ark., native to tie the score at 1-1 heading into the second period.
 
Early in the second half, Harris-Stowe took the lead on a penalty kick from Briana Garza. WBC would fight back by getting fouled in the six yard box and Owen put away the penalty kick off the top crossbar in the 64th minute to even the contest back at two.
 
The Lady Eagles were led on offense by Owen, who recorded four shots on goal. Raper, Cynthia Sikes, and Marlo Stacy each contributed two shots on goal, respectively. Williams outshot the Hornets 18 to 13 in the contest.
 
"It is such a pleasure to watch this team grow each and every game.  They have continued to get better throughout the season and to not lose for the first time was important.  The ladies deserve all the credit," said Head Coach Shane Stolz.
 
The next contest for the Lady Eagles is a home AMC match-up against Stephens College on Friday, October 25th. The contest is scheduled for a 3:30 p.m., start at the WBC Soccer Field. This is the final game of the inaugural season for WBC and also senior day. Eagles captain and only senior Carolina Vela will be honored before the match.
