Brambleton, VA (Apr 25, 2016) – As the season begins to wind down, every Loudoun County high school game has importance, and the girls soccer matchup between the visiting Potomac Falls Panthers and the home-standing Briar Woods Falcons was no exception.
JV: Briar Woods 7 – Potomac Falls 0
Before you knew it, halfway through the first half, the Falcons had scored three times and the Panthers were reeling. Dealing with a number of key injuries, matters only got worse for Potomac Falls as Briar Woods continued to control the match and the momentum. By the time it was all over, the Falcons had scored four more times.
Varsity: Briar Woods 3 – Potomac Falls 2
Fifteen minutes into the first half of a very evenly played match, Potomac Falls’ Maggie Moorcones struck a long shot that went in just under the bar, and the Panthers would retain that lead into the break.
The Falcons came out more aggressive to start the second half, and it paid off with a goal for Rayven Connor less than ten minutes in. And that score would hold up forcing the game into overtime. A tightly contested match became a wide-open shootout once regulation was over and the extra period began. Briar Woods scored twice to take a two-goal lead, but Potomac Falls cut it back to one just a little too late.
