“Work hard, play hard.”
That’s the motto that the Grant County High School Lady Braves soccer team have adopted for the season.
That mentality helped the Lady Braves go onto beat the Simon Kenton Lady Pioneers 4-2 on Aug. 31.
The game started out hard and fast.
Senior Mollie Pelfrey struck the first blow, coming off a five-goal game against Carroll County.
Despite a valiant effort by Simon Kenton’s goalkeeper, Abby Thatcher, a freshman, Pelfrey went on to kick another goal in the first half when she charged the net.
Simon Kenton answered with a goal of their own making it 2-1 to end the half.
In the second half, the Lady Braves were determined to bring home a win, as they played hard causing Simon Kenton to lose steam.
Gwen McAdams, a senior, started the second half when she scored her first goal of the game from a sizable distance sending the ball soaring over the head of the goalie and into the right side of the net.
“I wanted to play hard for a big crowd, and we came out victorious,” McAdams said.
The Lady Braves added another goal when Pelfrey again scored to end the game 4-2.
