Eastview High School
Lakeville South High School
The Lightning had their first South Suburban Conference game tonight and they travelled to Lakeville South to take on the Cougars. The Lightning controlled most of the play in the first half and really had the majority of the possession. Sophomore midfielder Lauren Glas was instrumental in winning 50-50 balls in the middle of the field. The defense anchored by Senior, Captain Sally Nelson kept the Cougars from getting an decent looks at the Lightning net.
The second half started with the Lightning controlling play again. The Lightning were able to get more and more possession and started to generate some scoring opportunities. The game’s lone goal was scored by Senior, Molly Beckman. That is Molly’s third goal on the season and she is the teams leading scorer. The defense remained strong in the second half and were able to defend the one Cougar corner kick all night.
The Eastview Lightning will travel to Duluth to take on the Duluth East Greyhounds on Saturday at 4:00.
