LISBON FALLS — Kayla Angelico scored the tying and go-ahead goals in the second half as the Lisbon High School girls soccer team rallied for a 3-1 victory over Oak Hill in Mountain Valley Conference play on Saturday.

 

 

Oak Hill (6-5) grabbed a 1-0 halftime lead on a Julie Morneault goal six minutes into the game.

“They were going to the ball more aggressively in the first half,” said Lisbon coach Jake Gentle. “In the second half, once we tied the game we relaxed and began controlling play.”

Angelico tied the contest for Lisbon (9-0-1) six minutes into the frame off a corner kick. Her breakaway tally with 10:58 remaining proved to be the game-winner, and Kailyn Hill finished things off on a corner kick header from Paige Galligan.

For Lisbon, which visits Madison on Thursday, goaltender Courtney Martel and Oak Hill netminder Kelsey Collins both turned aside six shots. The Greyhounds held a 6-5 edge in corner kicks, while the Raiders finished with a 12-8 lead in shots.
