In a defensive struggle, the USC-Salkehatchie women's soccer team got past Wake Tech College 1-0 in their season opener Aug. 24 in Allendale.
USC-Salkehatchie and Wake Tech played nearly 65 minutes until Kenesha Roberts drove a ball through the net off an assist from Neichie Etienne.
Throughout the contest both teams had their chances to get on scoreboard, but the Lady Indians were more productive with a 10-5 edge in the shot column.
"In the first half, we were tentative in our play. At times, we had problems maintaining possession. In the second half, we were a looser team. We played with a lot more confidence and it showed on the scoreboard," USC-Salkehatchie coach Bill Glass said.
Defensively for the Lady Indians, the one goal lead was more than enough for Lady Indians' keeper Chelsee Wright.
Wright recorded two saves in the final three minutes to preserve the shutout.
Wright said the victory was the result of good team work.
"Defensively, we were very strong as a unit," Wright said. "Our midfielders stepped up and made several outstanding plays. They made my job easier."
Several other showcasing their talents defensively included Ashai Brown, Sara Johnstone, Sasha Crawford, Jasmine Smith, Lisa Doolittle and Chelsea Mayo.
