West Rowan went in to yesterday’s game with NW Cabarrus knowing they would need to be at their best to have a chance at beating a very talented opponent. And for the first 40 minutes the Lady Falcons did just that. West came out playing their best soccer of the season and put pressure on NWC from the start. Both teams had opportunities to get on the board first, but defensively West proved to be too much. Lejla Mehmedovic took advantage of a good look at goal around 18 minutes in the first and put West up 1-0. As the first half came to a close it was obvious to see that NWC was gaining momentum, but just not able to put away their chances at goal. From the start of the 2nd half, NWC proved to be to much offensively as they scored 2 goals in the first 8 minutes to take the lead. West wasn’t able to keep pace and conceded 5 more goals throughout the 2nd half. Though it wasn’t the result that the Lady Falcons wanted, a lot of what was accomplished in the game will be the building blocks for the rest of the season. West plays Mt. Airy at home tonight. Kickoff at 6:00 pm.
