Second half scores overtake Lady Tornado

GAFFNEY, S.C. - A halftime lead was not enough for the traveling King College women's soccer team Wednesday as Limestone (S.C.) College scored twice in the second half for a 2-1 decision.

King went to 1-7 on the 2010 campaign while Limestone has a 3-4-1 record.

Morgan Shelton (Chattanooga, Tenn.) waited until the 44th minute of the contest to put King on the scoreboard. Shelton received the ball from Monica Aguirre (Miami, Fla.) for the Lady Tornado's score.

It took Limestone 3:20 into the second half to tie the contest thanks to a goal by Lauren Lanham. Ashley Alderin-Fleagle fed Lanham the ball on the play. The eventual game winner came at the 75:20 mark when Vanessa Jarrett scored in the upper left shelf of the goal. Jarrett received the ball from Madi Dulisse.

Abbey Kitts (Tazewell, Va.) stopped nine shots for King.

King attempted 18 shots, with 12 on goal and both are season highs for the squad. Limestone had 17 shots, 11 of which were on goal.

Next for King will be a 1 p.m. contest Saturday with Concord (W.Va.) University at the Lady Tornado's Parks Field.
