Controlled play gives girls’ soccer split

September 3, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY – The 2012 girls' soccer season kicked off Saturday with Punxsy controlling two matches of its own tournament to earn a split with a 0-0 (1-3 on penalty kicks) loss to Keystone before blanking Smethport, 2-0, in the afternoon.

“Our team played great today,” excitedly told Lady Chucks head coach Kevin Hughes. “We controlled possession, and our passing was very good in both matches.”

In the second match, Ashley Bacha found the net for the first time in the Punxsy season with an unassisted effort 12 minutes into the contest.
