UNIONVILLE — The Community Viqueens held a slim 1-0 halftime lead before surging ahead with three goals in the second half as the Viqueens ended their regular season with a 4-1 win over the Middle Tennessee Golden Eagles in a soccer matchup Thursday night.
Community (9-2-1), fresh off a hard-fought 1-0 district win over Cascade, didn't rest on its laurels as the Viqueens won for the fifth straight game with the defense providing a consistent staple.
The Viqueens have only allowed one goal in its five wins.
With the Lady Eagles giving the Viqueens trouble on the offensive end of the field, the game remained scoreless for most of the first half before Stevie Dickenson scored off an assist from Zoey Dixon with 2:16 remaining to give Community a 1-0 lead heading into the intermission.
The late Viqueen goal provided momentum for Community as the second half began.
Dixon found the back of the net with two unassisted goals in the first five minutes, including her first goal 32 seconds into the half as the Viqueens extended their advantage to 3-0.
The Viqueens added an insurance goal as Rocio Barrio scored with 25:18 remaining to up the Community lead to 4-0.
A Golden Eagle goal with 10:57 left narrowed the final margin as Community gets ready for postseason tournament play.
"Everyone played well, and everyone got a lot of playing time," Coach Chris Brothers of the Viqueens said.
"It was a good way to end the season with a win to get ready for the district tournament next week."
