A slow start doomed the Henry County Lady Cats’ soccer team on Sept. 3 at Walton-Verona.
The Bearcats scored just 6:30 into the match after the teams had played fairly evenly in the opening minutes. The goal came from 25 yards out on the right wing on an excellent shot from a tight angle.
After the score Walton threatened again with 10:20 left in the half but Sophie Hughes made a nice save for the Lady Cats. Hughes would make three more saves in the closing minutes of the half to keep the Lady Cats in the game.
