The Mercer County Lady Titans Soccer Team sent their seniors out with a victory Monday night, as they took down the Franklin County Lady Flyers 2-1 on their annual senior night.
After the ceremony to recognize seniors Lauren Beams, Kelsee Darland, Emily Patterson and Samantha Travillian, the Lady Titans were fired up and ready to play.
Only nine minutes into the game, the Lady Titans struck for their first goal when freshman Jasa Connelly intercepted a pass in the Lady Flyer defensive area and sent a blazing shot past Franklin County goalkeeper Kerrigan Brown.
“I anticipated the pass, and once I intercepted it, I took it towards the goal,” said Connelly after the game.
The Titans shot 10 other times in the half, but couldn’t score, while they also held the Lady Flyers scoreless for the remainder of the half.
At the beginning of the second-half, the Lady Titans got a goal just 50 seconds in.
Mercer County’s Lauren Goodlett took the ball down the right sideline around the entire Lady Flyer defense and made a cross right to the feet of Patterson, who put the ball in the back of the net to give Mercer the 2-0 lead.
