Greenville Lady Wave soccer team falls to Lady Skyhawks in MVL match
GREENVILLE – The Lady Wave varsity soccer team and the visiting Fairborn Lady Skyhawks hooked up in a spirited match Wednesday night at Greenville’s Harmon Field with Fairborn scoring 3-goals late in the game to earn a 5-1 win.
“Hard fought game,” said Greenville coach, Dave Ernst. “My girls kept their cool. Sometimes when physical games get out of hand – that’s a shame because it’s a beautiful sport. It’s a meant to be played with contact but yet not aggressive contact.”
Fairborn took a 2-1 lead at the halftime break with Greenville’s Jayda Lyons finding the net off a corner kick for the home team’s lone goal of the night.
The opening 26:20 of second half play proved to be a defensive battle for both teams only to have the Lady Skyhawks score at 13:40, 3:14 and 1:17 to earn the 4-point MVL win.
“We haven’t had full strength in practicing for a while with the Great Darke County Fair,” Coach Ernst said. “We’re hoping to get back in the mix and get back to where we need to. We’ll get there.”
