HUNTSVILLE SOCCER — Fitting home finale

Lady Hornets put match away in second half, one step closer to state soccer playoffs

HUNTSVILLE — The Huntsville girls soccer team shined in their final home game of the season with a 3-0 victory against Porter.

The Lady Hornets dominated on both sides of the field.

Huntsville registered 17 shots while they held Porter (3-3-3 District 39-4A play) to only a shot, which was blocked on the set piece play.

“Usually our game plan every time is to pass the ball around and make them run after us,” Huntsville coach Andrew Stewart said.

Senior Cassidy Conroy led the Lady Hornets (4-4-1 in District 39-4A play) with two goals.

Conroy’s first goal came in the 19th minute when she received the throw in and dribbled the ball towards the middle of the box and blasted the shot that hit off the top of the crossbar and over the line for a 1-0 lead.

“I thought we need some shots, we need to gain some confidence,” Conroy said. “I had the open shot and I took it. Luckily it went in.”

Conroy scored again in the second half.

The Lady Hornets close out the regular season on March 18 at Caney Creek.

In the 53th minute, Conroy received a throw in and dribbled into the box and blasted the shot into the net for a 2-0 lead.

The Lady Hornets added another one for good measure in the 69th minute when senior Sandra Rodriguez found her fellow senior Madison English in the box, who put it away to make it 3-0.

“It was just perfect,” English said of the goal. “They just gave it to me and had a perfect place. How much better can it get when the team does the hard work for you.”
