The Magnolia Girls’ Soccer Team gave a gallant effort Sept. 15, but fell to Wheeling Central 4-1 at New Martinsville. It was the first game in which the Lady Eagles could compete, after missing four because of injury or sickness.
The Lady Maroon Knights scored a pair of goals in the first half and added two more late in the second half. The Eagles’ lone score came about the 20 minute mark in the second half on a penalty kick by Brittany Leek that cut Central’s lead in half.
Gabby Hostetler, the Eagles keeper, had one of her best games of the season, swatting away 20 Central shots.
The Lady Silver Knights of Tyler Consolidated won their first match of the season against Lady Eagles by the score of 3-2 on Sept. 17 at the old Middlebourne High School.
Haley Acree netted two shots in goal, while Nicole Stinespring added another to lead the Lady Knights to victory. Emily Wildman kept Tyler in the game with 13 saves.
Leek and Robyn Daughtery each netted a goal in the match, while Hostetler had 12 saves between the nets for Magnolia.
