PAINTSVILLE - The Prestonsburg girls’ soccer team claimed its second straight win Tuesday night, edging rival Paintsville 4-3.
Prestonsburg, under the direction of Coach Scott Porter, led 4-2 midway through the second half after the game was knotted 1-1 at intermission. The Lady Blackcats gave up the game’s final goal with 10 minutes remaining in regulation.
Prestonsburg played without two starters - fullback Allyson DeRossett and goalkeeper Autumn Hall. Multiple Prestonsburg players stepped up in the road game.
“We are all very proud of junior Jenna Little, who changed her normal position and played goalkeeper tonight to fill in for the injured Autumn Hall,” Porter commented. “We also had a couple of younger girls step up to fill other positions voided due to injuries.”
Katie Porter paced Prestonsburg with two goals. Ally Branham and Caitlin Kidd contributed one goal apiece for the Lady Blackcats.
Jackie Kidd and McKenzie Collins each had an assist for Prestonsburg in the hard-fought win.
Defensively, Prestonsburg goalkeeper Jenna Little limited Paintsville to three goals.
Prestonsburg was hosting Pike County Central Wednesday night in a game that ended too late to make this edition.
