Martinsville scored again early in the second half to take the lead 2-1.
Brooke Holt gave an assist to Candace Freeman to score for Patrick County, evening the score to 2-2.
Martinsville scored again on a corner shot with about 10 minutes left in the game.
The Lady Cougars were unable to put the ball into the net for the remainder of the game, losing 3-2.
“This was a very physical game for both teams,” said Coach Sandra Rakes. “Our offense did a good job getting the ball up the field and taking shots. Defensively, we did well winning the 50/50 balls.”
