LITTLE ROCK — The Little Rock Central Lady Tigers sidetracked the surging Bryant Lady Hornets with a pair of second-half goals for a 3-0 win at Quigley-Cox Stadium on Friday night in 7A-Central Conference play.
Bryant came into the contest on a four-game win streak including a 4-0 win over second-place Mount St. Mary Academy on Tuesday. They had a chance to move into a tie for third with a win over the Lady Tigers but a frustrating contest ensued.
“We struggled to stay organized and to anticipate a counter attack,” said Bryant coach James Paul.
The Lady Tigers scored a goal in the first half and that 1-0 lead held at halftime.
With the win, Central forged a tie with Mount for second in the league at 6-3 behind unbeaten Cabot.
The Lady Hornets, now 8-7 overall and 5-5 in league play, will try to get back in the winning groove on Tuesday when they host Fort Smith Southside.
“We are still progressing as a team,” Paul said. “We continue to grow in different facets of the game.”
