Soccer vs. Salem Baptist
The Sabers showed up ready to play on Wednesday as they looked to avenge an early season loss to Salem Baptist. The team played their best game of soccer this season. Everyone made great plays and passes and the team worked together well. Mandy Peake put Salem on top in the middle of the first half when she beat three defenders and put a perfectly placed ball past the fingertips of the Salem Baptist goalkeeper. The visitors were able to tie the score before half time and make the second half mean that much more. The Sabers were put to the test with the even play throughout the second half and saw chances to take the lead. Mandy Peake provided that lead late in the half when she was able to find the back of the net with eight minutes left. Angelina Pierre played a phenomenal game in the goal for Salem. She made multiple saves and stopped two different one-on-one opportunities to give the Sabers the chance to stay in the game.
