Women's Soccer: Panthers extend win streak to three

The LaGrange College Women's Soccer Team extended its win streak to three, beating Mississippi University for Women 5-0 at Panther Field to improve to 3-1-1 on the season. 

The Panthers jumped out to quick lead 10 minutes in, when reigning Conference Player of the Week Kaia King scored her third goal of the season on an assist from Madison Drobisch. 

LC added a second goal with 18 minutes left in the half when Kirsten Captino scored her third goal of the season off a deflected shot by Sydney Dailey. Just over a minute later, Dailey scored her first goal of the season to extend the Panthers lead to three, and that is where it stayed entering the half. 

King and Dailey both scored again  midway through the second half to raise the tally to 5-0, and that score held. 

The Panthers had control for most of the game, though MUFW had its chances. The Owls had 10 of 13 shots end up on goal, but goalkeeper Leia Moss proved too much, securing eight saves and a clean sheet before being injured on a save with six minutes left in the game. 

"It was a good win," said Head Coach Kennet Fosuhene. "We had a slow start, but put together a good performance once we worked out the small kinks.

"It's a quick turnaround, and the squad will be tested against Trinity Baptist on Thursday. I'm looking forward to it!" 

The Panthers remain at home for Thursday's match with Trinity Baptist before traveling to Covenant College on Saturday to start conference play.
