The East Lincoln Lady Mustangs South Point 2-0 in Overtime on Monday night.
Ali Fisher scored two goals. The first came off a Bailey Johnson corner and the second was a shot from just outside the 18 yard box which deflected off a defender into the net.
South Point was previously unbeaten in Big South 3A conference play.
The win raises the Lady mustangs to 5-2-1 in conference and 7-3-4 overall.
According to coach Jason Dragoon, Julia Barker played well in the midfield.
Bailey Johnson and Krystle Kresge played exceptional games in the back and Christina McClain shutdown South Point standout Samantha Fox most of the game.
Erin Smith played tremendous in net stopping 12 shots including a diving save on a breakaway late in the game and got some help from right fullback Mykel Gates who cleared what looked to be a sure goal off the endline and out late in the second half.
â€œI was extremely proud of our teams performance tonight, as we played without two key players,â€ said Dragoon.
