Lady Cougar soccer competes in scrimmages

By Stephen Henderson
The Patrick County High School Lady Cougar soccer team scrimmaged Floyd County last Tuesday night at home. The Lady Cougars lost the contest 5-0.
“We started out a little slow in the first half but played much better in the second. We saw some things that we still need to work on as a team, but that’s what a scrimmage is for. All in all, I thought the girls played well,” Rakes said.
The Lady Cougars competed in three 40-minute scrimmages in the Bengal Bash at the Smith River Sports Complex Saturday. They lost the first game to Dan River 1-0. Carroll County defeated the Lady Cougars 4-0 in the second game and PC lost to George Washington of Danville 6-0 in the final scrimmage of the day.
The Lady Cougars traveled to Bassett yesterday (Tuesday) and will host GW of Danville Thursday. The JV game starts at 5:30 with the varsity game following at 7 p.m.
