Smethport scored the only goal in Wednesday afternoon's girls' soccer match at the SMAHS soccer field; however, it was the Lady Dutch who came away with the 1-0 win.
"We lost to them the first time, so getting a little revenge was nice," said SMA coach Dr. Bob Schmidt. "[They were] some pretty well-matched teams and we've continued to improve. We had a lot of good action up front with Aspyn Wolff, Holly Shields, and Caley Keister, and then in the back with Mia Keener and Shannon Bridges, as well as Haley McGowan. It was a good team effort and a nice way to finish the season."
