Riley Henry scored both goals in Saturday’s road win over Cedarville.
Senior Riley Henry’s second goal of the afternoon in the 85th minute gave the Lee women’s soccer team a 2-1 victory over host Cedarville University under windy conditions on Saturday afternoon. The win improved the Lady Flames’ record to 3-0 and sends Coach Chris Hennessey’s club into the Gulf South Conference opener next Friday (7 p.m.) against Union University in the annual Kickin’ It for Kids with Cancer contest. 

Henry’s first goal came in the 8:04 mark of the opening half. She picked up a double assist from Sage Sammeli and Alexis Hale and drilled her 18-yard left-footed shot high into the far left back of the net.
The 1-0 lead stood until an on-goal by the Lady Flames tied the contest at the 65:44 mark in the second half. Henry produced the winner from 15-yards out on a low strike to the low back post. Jordan Blair delivered the assist. It was Henry’s third score of the season.  

“Henry had an excellent week of play,” commented Coach Hennessey. “All of our forwards and the defense played well under the extremely windy conditions today. Give Cedarville credit. They are a class act and played well. We’ve got some injured players we have to try to get well before next Friday’s conference games begin.” 

The Lady Flames had 13 shots and placed five excellent opportunities on goal. Avery Engels (2) and Kelsey Yoder (1) had Lee’s other shots on goal. Cedarville keeper Brooke Ackley had three saves in taking the loss. On the other hand, the Lee defense allowed the Yellow Jackets just seven shots and six on target. Lee keeper Jacqueline Burns stepped up with six saves, two in the first half and four in the second. Each team was awarded three corner kicks.
