Shorthanded Rebels battle Charlestown to 1-1 tie
Southwestern girls soccer battled injuries and illness to play arguably its best match of the season and battle Charlestown to a 1-1 tie on Tuesday.
With four girls on the sidelines recovering from concussions and one dealing with the flu, Southwestern played with just 13 players.
The two teams played a scoreless first 30 minutes until the host Pirates found the net with under five minutes to play in the first period to lead 1-0 at halftime.
The second half played out much like the first, but the tables turned, benefiting Southwestern. With less than 15 minutes to play, the Rebels tied the game when Jennah Butters' cross pass found Ashley Reardon, who sent a laser shot past the Charlestown goalie to knot the score.
Neither team gave up a goal in the final minutes, resulting in the 1-1 tie.
In addition to the play of Butters and Reardon, Emily McCane debuted at the sweeper position and contributed throughout both halves.
Southwestern (0-6-1) hosts Rising Sun on Thursday.
