Roundup: G-Girls rally to beat Providence on soccer pitch

EAST RIVER — The Graham G-Girls soccer team fought back from a 3-3 tie in the second half to defeat Providence Academy, a private school from Johnson City, Tenn., 6-3 on Monday evening at East River Soccer Complex.

Liz Workman started the scoring with an unassisted goal for Graham (6-1) around the 10-minute mark, executing a looping shot from about 25 yards out that went over the goalkeeper’s head.

Kali Furry gave Graham a 2-0 lead, assisted by Whitney Browning after a back-and-forth exchange down the field between the two. After Providence’s Erica Roller cut the lead in half, Morgan Whisman gave Graham its 3-1 halftime lead with an unassisted shot from 18-yard mark, landing just inside the far post.

Kyler Williams of Providence scored twice to tie the match. Workman then scored the go-ahead tally, Alysia Leung added to the lead after an assist from Elizabeth Barker, and Browning wrapped up the scoring with an unassisted goal, battling through four defenders.

Karly Morgan was in goal throughout for Graham, which plays today at Giles.
