The Bucs were on the road again to face the number one ranked team in class 6a tonight. Chelsea certainly looked the part as they capitalized on an early Buc’s error. The Hornets were able to exploit a defensive break down just 3 minutes into the match and scored on a break away goal to go up 1-0. Chelsea kept the offensive pressure on but the Bucs defense was up to the task as Goalie Haley Lowell denied several shots by the Hornets forwards. The Bucs were able to tie up the score late in the first half when Nicole Kennedy followed up her initial shot which was blocked. She was able to strike the ball over the goalie and into the Chelsea goal for the Hoover goal.
Although those were the only goals of the game the second half had both teams and fans on the edge of their seats. Both sides had legitimate scoring opportunities for the win. The game would end with both sides still trying frantically to get the winning goal. This game definitely had a playoff feel to it. And that is where the Bucs are headed next Monday. But first they will be back in action tomorrow at home to face Huntsville at 6 pm. Go Bucs!!
