In a matter of 21 minutes last Thursday, the West Jessamine Lady Colts soccer team erased and conquered a three-goal deficit against the Sayre Lady Spartans, winning 4-3 at home.
After a tough 3-1 loss to the Lafayette Lady Generals three days prior, the home team came out sluggish and Sayre took full advantage, pounding in three first-half goals.
Despite the sizable deficit, spirits remained high in the halftime huddle for the Lady Colts.
"Even though we gave up three goals, if you could see the kids at halftime, you could realize that we weren't out of the ballgame," said West head Coach DeAngelo Wiser. "We've been able to put the ball in the back of the net this year, so the kids didn't believe they were out of it. They knew they could get it done and they just kept attacking and things snowballed."
The snowball started rolling nearly 13 minutes into the second half when freshman Tasha Boden knocked in a cross to the far post on an assist from Ashley Cobane, also a freshman.
