Prep Roundup: Lady Vols beat Lake Havasu
KINGMAN – The Lee Williams High School girls soccer team started off the 2019-20 season with a bang Monday as it defeated Lake Havasu 4-1.
The Lady Vols responded with four unanswered goals for the victory after Lake Havasu opened the scoring.
Lee Williams took the lead in the second half when Kendra Pease threaded the ball through the defense to Mackenzie Cathey for a score. Pease added a goal on a penalty kick for a 3-1 advantage and Cathey tallied her second goal on an assist from Tina Laegdhelm for the final tally.
Grace Otero scored Lee Williams’ lone goal in the first half, but it was enough as the defense stepped up.
