Bulldogs fall one goal short in road trip

MOORESVILLE — While still getting used to a new coach and system, the Brownsburg girls’ soccer team had another adjustment Monday night.

Over the weekend against McCutcheon, Brownsburg starting goalkeeper Kassy Christy aggravated a lingering knee injury, and is out indefinitely. Sophomore Katherine Lyons stepped between the posts against Mooresville on Monday, and despite a solid debut, the Bulldogs lost 2-1.

“(Lyons) played well for us in her first varsity game,” Brownsburg coach Megan Osborne said. “She did exactly what she needed to and we’re very proud of her effort.”

Lyons had six saves and made aggressive plays on numerous other Mooresville offensive attacks. The host Pioneers had an 8-4 shots-on-goal advantage and kept pressure on much of evening.

“Our backs played hard as a group,” Osborn said. “They didn’t get much of a break all night. Mooresville came at us and outplayed us.”

Mooresville held its one-goal lead in over the final 13 minutes, which was welcomed by coach Jason Damron after his team lost two games last weekend after going up 2-0 in each.

“We really persevered and finished it,” Damron said. “We talked about that before the game, about how sometimes you have to find it in you to get it done. They really picked it up in the end.”

Brownsburg (1-2) jumped ahead 16 minutes in, when Kamarin Witham cut through two Mooresville players and fired the ball past keeper Natalie Guffey.

“She’s a strong player,” Osborne said of Witham. “When we can get the ball to her and on her foot and she gets within her shooting range, she puts it on frame.”

Mooresville (2-3) tied it up 12 minutes before halftime when Ashley Kimble scored on a feed from Kellie Cavanaugh.

Mooresville outshot Brownsburg 6-1 in the opening half.

“They played so well possession-wise,”Damron said. “I felt like we really controlled the half, and it was fun to watch.”
