HARTSVILLE, S.C. – Three different Cobras scored for Coker on Wednesday (Sept. 26) night, to give the women's soccer team a 3-1 Conference Carolinas win over the Converse Valkyries.
Baily Van Order started the scoring spree for the Cobras, after she fired in a shot that was crossed to her from Jenna Pacyna. Coker took an unsatisfying 1-0 lead into the locker room.
The Valkyries however, were not ready to surrender. Converse came out of the locker room reenergized, as a goal from Samantha Lockman tied the match 1-1.
Coker quickly responded, when freshman Jalynn Fortt beat a Converse defender down the sideline and evaded the goalkeeper to put the Cobras back up 2-1. An insurance goal from Kelley Godbout in the 63rd minute sealed the deal for Coker and gave them a 3-1 Victory.
Coker will be back on the road for conference play on Saturday (Sept. 29), as they travel to compete against Lees-McRae. The match is set to kick-off at 3 p.m.
