On to Upperstate!! Congratulations to Powdersville Varsity Girls Soccer on their 1-0 third round playoff win over Indian Land at home on Friday, May 3, 2019. An enthusiastic crowd of Patriots fans enjoyed a game of intense competition as Lady Patriots advanced to the upperstate finals.
Both teams protected their territory in the first half, with each taking shots on goal. With 25:27 remaining in the second half, freshman Sydnee Barrett outran the nearest defender on a long ball and drilled a well-placed shot into the back of the net for the 1-0 advantage. Indian Land attempted determinedly to score in the remaining minutes, and Lady Patriots’ back line stayed with their marks and turned the ball around over and over. Senior keeper Jeanette Campbell saved or blocked the ones close to the net, and Powdersville racked up shut-out #13.
Powdersville (17-0) travels to Woodruff (21-5) for the Upperstate Final of Class AAA Girls Soccer on Monday, May 6. Game time is 6:30 pm. Woodruff hosted the upperstate final last year and fell to Indian Land. This season, Woodruff won their region again and defeated Carolina 6-1, Camden 6-1, and Broome 3-2 in playoffs. Time for a spring road trip! Woodruff is less than an hour away, and Lady Patriots would love another cheering crowd! Come out and support our Lady Patriots!! #MakingHistoryEverySeason! #Go Patriots!!
