Cuba-Rushford defeated the Wellsville Lady Lions, 1-0
Within the first 10 minutes, the Lady Rebels delivered the first strike on a ball delivered up field by Christy Childs. It was soon picked up by Sofia Riquelme, who knocked it home past Makenna Dunbar in the Wellsville cage to account for the contest’s lone goal that kept them buckled in the driver’s seat permanently.
Although they had the lead, the Lady Rebels (4-3) did manage to collect a bundle of chances along the way, especially in the second half, when perhaps their best to add onto the lead came on a quick sequence that began with a ball squirting through the hands of Dunbar and to the open side of the Lady Lions cage.
Both the Lady Rebels and Lady Lions were dead even in the shot department, each garnering nine shots. Tara Duvall would pick up the victory behind five stops, while Dunbar secured eight for the Lady Lions.
