Captain Shreve overcame some early jitters and a pesky Ruston team to win 2-0 in the first round of the Division II girls soccer playoffs at Lee Hedges Stadium on Friday night.
“I think they had some jitters in the beginning,’’ Shreve coach Nicholas Thompson said. “Ruston did a very good job of possession so our through balls weren’t quite on point.
“As the first half went on, we picked up our possession which kind of took their possession away.’’
Kelsie Payne and Laura Leigh Lawrence scored the goals for Shreve. Caroline Brakeville shut out Ruston as she turned away all 13 Ruston shots on goal.
“I was definitely pleased how the end (of the game) came out,’’ Thompson said. “We’ll travel to West Ouachita and do our best over there.’’
