Lady Mountaineers shutout by McDowell

LEDGER – Mitchell girls’ soccer lost to McDowell in the team’s only game this past week.

Mitchell lost 2-0 to the Lady Titans April 4 at Mitchell High. 

The defeat dropped the Lady Mountaineers to 2-10-1 on the season and 1-5 in conference play. 

McDowell dominated possession in the first half, but Mitchell’s defense repelled most of the attacks. 

Goalie Brandey Burleson made several saves as well. But McDowell went ahead with about 10 minutes left in the half after a Mitchell defender misplayed the ball and it fell to a wide-open McDowell forward who scored.

McDowell added another goal in the second half.

Mitchell was scheduled to play Wednesday at Hendersonville. 

The team is off this coming week for spring break. The Mountaineers’ April 5 home game against Owen was postponed and rescheduled for May 2 due to weather.
