Emma Alvarez's goal in the final minutes keep Badgers unbeaten

The toughest contest so far this season for the girls soccer team took place last night at Prescott High School, as the Badgers needed a late goal to win 2-1 over the Seton Catholic Sentinels. The game was tied 1-1, before Emma Alvarez got the much needed goal in the 77th minute of the contest.

"We won ugly tonight, but at the end of the day that is what matters," said Prescott coach Paul Campuzano. Rebekah Norris had 10 saves, only allowing one breakaway goal in the second half. "Becca Norris came up with some wonderful saves tonight and really is the reason we pulled out the victory. She has really stepped up and becaome a real difference for our team."

Sawyer Magnett broke the scoreless tie with about three minutes left in the first half, as she was able to get the ball just past the Sentinals goalie. Seton Catholic had some chances, but Norris did a great job defending the Badger goal. The only goal for the Sentinels came 13 minutes into the second half, when Bri Nunley found herself on a breakaway, and scored a goal that just got past Prescott goalie Rebekah Norris.

Campuzano added, "Well when you play a good team and do not finish your chances and get outworked for portions of the game, it is very difficult to win. The girls understand that sometimes it is important to win games that we are playing disjointed and choppy."

Prescott (4-0), will travel to Greenway on Thursday for a 6pm game. Seton Catholic falls to (4-2-1).
