H.S. girls soccer: Green Dragons get needed win at Midd-West

Green Dragons get needed win at Midd-West

(Continued)

The Green Dragons attempted just five shots in the first half to Midd-West's nine, but two of those five found the back of the net, including Cole's goal off a baseline pass from Lindsay Ayers.

What hurt Midd-West was missed opportunities and chances throughout the game. Junior Kenedi Moyer had breakaway passes and found through balls routinely, but struggled to generate decent shots and missed the frame. Moyer scored in the second half but, despite the goal, the Mustangs struggled to convert. Of the Mustangs 20 shot attempts, just two were goals.

"That seems to be our story right now. We're so close (but) we just can't get over that hump to have a complete game and finish things we need to do," Midd-West coach Russ Goodling said. "I got to give Lewisburg credit: They took advantage of their opportunities and made the best of them. We just didn't, plain and simple."

Fisher played solid in the goal for Lewisburg despite giving up two goals.

In the second half, Moyer took a shot from about seven yards out, only to see Fisher get her hands up and block it. The loose ball rolled back to Moyer who tried to tap it in just a few yards in front of the goal, but Fisher got a leg out to block it before she fell on top of it.

It was that type of effort and play from the senior keeper that helped Lewisburg walk out of Middleburg with another win.

"(Fisher) was oustanding. When we needed her the most, she came out with two tremendous saves to keep the game at 2-2, and then Donnelly came in there (to score late)," Vega said. "It was a good feeling."
