The powerful Bowling Green Purples made a trip to White House on Monday and defeated the Lady Devils, 4-2.
White House hung tough the entire game and fought to take a 1-0 lead just three minutes into the game when sophomore leading scorer Morgan Potts fired on net. But the Purples fired back with two goals to take the lead, the first a hook arc from the left corner that found a sliver or room at the top of the net over a leaping defender Marley Hyde and keeper Jordan Turner.
The second goal for a 2-1 lead went over Turner’s head on a longer shot from the right middle, but White House tied the game with 17:06 left in the first half when Kaitlyn Stanfield anchored a shot into the right side of the net.
The Purples added the third goal before half on a solid right footer from 20 yards out and then capitalized in the first few minutes of the second for a 4-2 lead.
White House will take on an even more formidable opponent on Wednesday from Kentucky when they welcome the multi-time state champion Greenwood Gators to WHHS, getting ready for next week’s district tournament play with a couple of tough games to end the regular season.
Overall, it was a solid effort from the Lady Devils on Monday against a Class 6-A school, and Turner was solid in the net as the Purples spent the majority of the night on the offensive attack.
