Honoring seniors and welcoming back Head Coach Grant Kang, the Borgia Lady Knights picked up their first-ever Archdiocesan Athletic Association girls soccer victory Monday at home, 3-1.

Borgia (5-9, 1-3) welcomed Kang back after he missed a week due to health issues.

“While I was gone, Coach (Jordan) Pennington took the team for three games last week and did a terrific job,” Kang said. “I’m just glad he was available to step in for me last week.”

Kang said the team had been looking forward to this match.

“We felt we didn’t get the result we deserved last time playing on their field,” Kang said. “Today, they started the game with a lot of focus and desire to be competitive.”

The Lady Knights jumped out to an early lead with Allie Wilson scoring the goal.

“She slipped in there and took a very nice shot,” Kang said. “It was very early in the ballgame and I think it surprised DuBourg.

Kang indicated the early goal frustrated the Lady Cavaliers and that presented another opportunity for Borgia to add to the lead.

“They really had a hard time keeping their composure for at least 20 minutes,” Kang said.

Emily Grahl scored during that period and Borgia took a 2-0 lead to the intermission.

DuBourg scored early in the second half and cut the lead to 2-1.

“They scored in the first minute of so of the second half,” Kang said.

Borgia held on with the defense and goalkeeper Emily Sisco making key stops before Grahl scored her second goal on a breakaway with less than two minutes left in regulation time.

“That goal made a huge difference,” Kang said. “They were really pressing and pulled an additional defender to try to get the tying goal. We needed to be successful on the counter to get that insurance goal.”

Borgia’s lost Thursday to Rosati-Kain, 4-0. No other details were available as of press time.
