Catching Powhatan

Since rejoining the Southside District six years ago, the Prince Edward County High School girls soccer team has chased perennial district front-runner Powhatan. Last Wednesday, the Lady Eagles finally caught the Lady Indians, as PE held on for a 4-3 victory over Powhatan at home.

Lowe scored two goals in the match, while senior midfielder Kyle Dyer scored the other two for the Lady Eagles, who led 2-1 at halftime, and 4-2 midway through the second half, before holding off a late Powhatan rally. The victory, gives Prince Edward the upper-hand in the race for the Southside District regular-season title, but the two teams will meet again to wrap up the regular-season on May 16.
