LYNCHBURG — Unbeaten Lynchburg-Clay handed Wilmington a 2-0 loss Monday in a non-league girls soccer match at LCHS.

“We wish Lynchburg the best of luck in their upcoming tournament run,” WHS coach Kerry Lewis said. “They have enough talent to make it to Columbus.”

The Lady Mustangs scored in the 10th minute and then again in the 78th minute.

“We had our chances, including a wide open goal from six yards out and a missed PK (penalty kick) all within the first four minutes,” Lewis said.

Lewis said the Lady Mustangs controlled possession throughout the match “but we continually counter-attacked.”

“Our girls played great,” said Lewis. “We pushed a veteran team to the final minute. Our defense was organized and stingy. Our back line played great team defense. We made LC work for everything. Senior keeper Lyla Self played a great game. Lyla neutralized their offensive attack with superb goal keeping.”
