Following suit of the men’s soccer team, the North Greenville women’s soccer team punched their ticket to the NCCAA with a 1-0 win over Truett McConnell.
The lone goal for the Crusaders came off the foot of Leah Ward in the 53rd minute of the Game. The goal not only gave the Crusaders a berth into the NCCAA Regional tournament but also gave Ward the lead in goals for the season with 14.
As has been the case this season, the Crusader defense came up big throughout the game clearing all balls near goal, and Jessica Binkley had 2 huge saves to cement the victory.
The ladies will play next at the regional tournament either on Friday or Saturday.
