Soccer: Lady Bobcats lose 2 by one goal each

Tuesday, April 20, 2021

The Berryville Lady Bobcats didn’t play poorly in two losses last week. They simply were the victims of bad timing and bad luck.

Berryville lost 2-1 to Dardanelle on Tuesday, April 13, then gave up a second-half lead in a 3-2 loss to Gentry on Friday.

Against Dardanelle, Berryville fell behind 1-0, then fought back in the second half to tie the score on a goal by Lucy Reyes. But the Lady Bobcats were called for a handball-in-the-box penalty with about five minutes remaining, and the Lady Sand Lizards converted the penalty kick for 2-1 victory.

Against Gentry, Berryville led 2-1 on goals by Lauren Compton and Reyes and seemed to be in control.

“We’ve got corner kicks, we’ve got girls on breakaways, and we just can’t put it in the net,” Berryville coach Aaron Hall said.

Gentry scored with about five minutes remaining to tie the score, then scored again less than a minute later to take the lead.

Berryville will host Harrison on Tuesday and visit Huntsville on Thursday.
