It didn’t take long tonight for West Rowan to take the lead against Mt. Airy. 38 seconds after the first whistle Selma Mehmedovic put away a rebound off a shot by Mackenna Clifton. The Lady Falcons seemed to have the game in hand early, but Mt. Airy got a favorable bounce off of the post and in to bring the game back even at 1. Both teams exchanged chances throughout the first half, but it wasn’t until 45 seconds remained when Lejla Mehmedovic intercepted a pass and placed a great shot past the keeper to take a 2-1 lead. As the 2nd half got underway, West got back on the scoreboard when Lauren Corriher scored off of a corner from Briana Saelinger 8 minutes in. Then 5 minutes later a handball was called in Mt. Airy’s box which gave West a Penalty Kick that was placed perfectly into the corner by Chloe Patterson. West missed opportunities to increase the lead, which almost proved costly as Mt. Airy scored 2 goals to cut the lead to 1 with 5 minutes left in the game. Luckily, West was able to hold on and get the win. West begins conference play on Tuesday.
