Behind three goals from Caroline Campbell, the Bryant Lady Hornets capped off their conference championship season with a 3-1 win over the Greenwood Lady Bulldogs on Senior Night Friday.
The Lady Hornets were already set as the No. 1 seed in the Class 7A State Tournament, which they will host starting on Thursday, May 14. Bryant will have a first-round bye and will play on Friday at noon against the winner of a Thursday game between the fourth seed from the 7A-West (Fort Smith Southside) and the third seed from the 7A-East (North Little Rock).
On Friday, the match was tied 1-1 at the half. Greenwood’s goal came on a penalty kick by Zoe Davis less than seven minutes in. Campbell’s first goal came off an assist from Anna Lowery with 8:53 left in the half.
In the second half, the goals came in quick succession. On a penalty kick, Campbell scored at 39:01 to snap the tie then just less than a minute later, she knocked in a follow shot.
Bryant keeper Maddie Hawkins had two saves in the contest.
