GIRLS SOCCER

EAST LINCOLN 1, LINCOLNTON 0: At East Lincoln, the Mustangs held on and won their 11th straight match on Tuesday.
Freshman Danielle Colanino scored in the first half on a deflection atop the box. The win was also their eighth shutout of the season, leaving them three shy of the school record of 11.
“I thought we moved the ball OK. They disrupted our flow. Coach Leith had his girls prepared,” East Lincoln coach Jason Dragoon said. “This is going to become more common. We’re playing with a target on our back. … We learned a lot from the match, and will use it to get better. … We need teams to play their ‘A’ game against us so we can get better.”
First place East Lincoln (11-3-1, 7-0-0 Southern District 7 Athletic 2A) travels to Bunker Hill on Thursday while Lincolnton (1-6 SD-7) heads to Bandys.
