Railsplitters Win Hard Fought Match Over Young Harris 2-0

Box Score

HARROGATE, TN --  The Railsplitter soccer team pulled out a 2-0 win over Young Harris Saturday afternoon in a physical, foul-plagued game.

Sophomore forward Mackenzie Wilde struck first for Lincoln Memorial, as he broke into the open-field after a deflection by a Young Harris defender sent the ball flying. With a pair of nifty moves, Wilde was able to scoot by the keeper and plant one into the back of the net, taking the score to 1-0 in favor of the Railsplitters.

From the start, the match was a physical affair with multiple yellow and red cards handed out. This pushed the game into a defensive struggle with each team attempting to take advantage of the limited opportunities provided by the defenses.

Lincoln Memorial was able to seize a chance in the closing minutes of the match. Following a foul of Chris Nash, the Railsplitters were awarded a penalty kick. Sophomore Fernando Silveira took the penalty kick and pounded the ball into goal, giving the Railsplitters a 2-0 lead which they would not relinquish.

Junior goalkeeper Michael Watkins was, once again, spectacular in goal, as he showed leadership and resolve in the defensive onslaught.

With the win, the Railsplitters move to 6-2 on the season. They will hit the field again on October 5th, as Lees-McRae comes to Harrogate. That game has a scheduled start time of 4 p.m.
