No. 9 Mercy wins in soccer


September 28, 1994|By From Staff Reports

Junior forward Lacey Morley had a goal and an assist to pace No. 9 Mercy over 15th-ranked and visiting Howard, 5-2, in girls soccer action yesterday.

With the Lions closing down around the area's second-leading scorer, Heather Miskiewicz, Morley found an opening to score in the upper right corner of the goal 13:25 into the game for a 1-0 lead. Then 4:25 after Howard tied the game at 1-1, Morley put the Sharpshooters (5-1-1) ahead for good by feeding Tina Steck for a score off a touch pass.

"All the defenders surround Heather," Morley said. "That leaves me wide-open for a pass back or cutting in."

Howard (1-2-1) had to settle for single-shot opportunities, but did regroup to close to within 3-2 after Karen Krupka powered in a goal between a crowd of defenders 17 minutes into the second half.

However, one minute later, Miskiewicz intercepted a clearing pass and scored on a one-on-one situation with goalkeeper Elissa Shefrin.
