Soccer: LWC Women defeat Bethel on the road
By Christopher Webster
Mckenzie, TN - A 40th-minute goal by Rayssa Neres Gomes De Souza pushed the No. 11-ranked Lindsey Wilson women's soccer team past Bethel (TN) 1-0.
The Blue Raiders (9-2, 8-0 MSC) extend their winning streak to eight games while the Wildcats (3-9, 1-7 MSC) drop their seventh consecutive game.
Lindsey Wilson applied pressure to the Wildcats defense the entire first half as they outshot Bethel 10-1. Bethel's lone shot came in the fourth minute as Ainhoa Chirivella attempted to put her squad out in front on a powerful shot from just outside the box. Maya Caon safely caroled the shot to keep the match scoreless.
The Blue Raiders responded with a counterattack, dribbling through the Wildcats defense into the opponent's side of the pitch. A header by Emma Lindell in the fifth minute seemed promising, but Bethel goalkeeper Shanay Ricketts made a fantastic save to keep Lindsey Wilson off the board.
The Blue Raiders searched for the first goal for most of the first half, but shots came up empty. The aggression for Lindsey Wilson paid off in the 40th minute as De Souza was fouled in the box and awarded a penalty kick. De Souza fired her shot to the lower-left corner for her eighth goal in two games to give the Blue Raiders a 1-0 lead.
Coming out of the break the Wildcats searched for the equalizer immediately as Caon saved a shot by Elle Carson less than 10 seconds into the second half. This would be the tale of the second half as both sides' goalies recorded multiple saves.
Lindsey Wilson attempted to expand its lead in the 57th and 62nd minutes as shots by Britt Tonis and Lindell were saved by Ricketts to keep the lead 1-0. The Wildcats responded with a shot by Maria Fernanda in the 73rd minute from 15 yards that Caon dove to save.
Bethel's Carson made one last attempt for even the score in the 81st minute as Caon once again shut the door as the Blue Raiders came away with a 1-0 victory to remain unbeaten in Mid-South Conference play.
The Blue Raiders return to the pitch on Oct. 19 as they host No. 3 Tennessee Southern. Kickoff is slated for 5pmCT at Walter S. Reuling Stadium.
