SLIAC Championship (11/5)

Posted Monday, November 7th, 2011

The Greenville women traveled to Principia to take on the SLIAC regular season confrence champions Saturday night. The ladies were ready and excited, as they knew the importance of this SLIAC Championship. Both teams knew they had a 90 minute battle ahead of them, as both GC and Principia had successful seasons this year. GC came out strong with high intensity.  They had a few great chances but both teams were unable to score in the first half. Going into haftime with a 0-0 score gave Greenville some confidence and they were ready to play their hearts out for another 45 minutes.

The second half started strong for GC with the ladies showing superb teamwork and working hard. GC’s effort and perserverence were commendable, as the ladies gave it their all the entire time they were on the field. Even the players on the bench were into the game, cheering and encouraging their teammates every step of the way. Despite the incredible work ethic the GC women had, Principia’s Nadine Marczi scored to bring them up 1-0. Greenville did not let up after getting scored on, as the ladies had a few great chances to tie the game. Unfortunately, they were unable to find the back of the net. The game would end in a Principia victory, 1-0.
