CHAPEL HILL — Thursday night’s District 6-A backyard brawl matchup between the Community Viqueens and Forrest Lady Rockets delivered a physical, 80-minute melee that resulted in a 1-1 draw.
Forrest struck the first blow within the first five minutes of the match, only for the Viqueens to answer before the half.
“We started off the first 10 minutes of the game a little timid. Once we started playing, our touches got better. In the first half, we had four breakaways and just missed them. It was just one of those nights we couldn’t get the ball in the goal,” Viqueen coach Chris Brothers said.
That score stood through the remainder of regulation.
For the Lady Rockets, it was Maddie Stalnecker that put the Lady Rockets on the board early in the match off a long shot, 30 yards out from the goal.
Community continued to pour on the runs at the Forrest goal, but simply could not connect for the equalizer, until roughly 25 minutes into the match.
After the Lady Rocket defense came out of the box to make a play, Community handled a rebound and Zoey Dixon slotted home the tying goal.
For Community, the defensive effort was led by Abby Murrill.
“She had a great game. She kind of sets the tone back there,” Brothers added.
Neither team was able to add to the lead and that score stood through the remainder of regulation.
Community was back in action on Monday night at home against Zion Christian, but traveled to Cornersville on Tuesday evening.
Community 1 0 — 1
Forrest 1 0 — 1
F — Maddie Stalnecker goal.
C — Zoey Dixon goal.
