HARBORCREEK - The final score may have indicated otherwise, but the Warren Dragons girls soccer team hung with defending District 10 champion Harbor Creek Saturday before dropping a 7-2 decision at Harbor Creek High School.
The match was scoreless until the 15th minute when the Huskies broke through for a 1-0 lead. After another Huskies goal, Warren would start to turn up the heat and soon cut the deficit to 2-1.
The Dragons (1-3) scored their first goal when the rebound from a Reid Yarzabek free kick was buried into the net by Erica Blair.
While the Huskies would soon push the lead to 3-1 and keep scoring into the second half, Warren would add a second goal before the day was done. Kaitlin Ishman did the scoring this time by converting on a direct kick from roughly 20 yards out.
"The girls definitely picked their game up after Thursday's loss," said Warren coach Bob Domville. "We had more scoring opportunities and played with more consistency. I hope we have turned a corner and can play with more confidence going forward."
According to Domville, Amanda Pinkerton and Lauren Frazier made several nice saves in goal.
Warren's junior varsity team was defeated, 2-0. Domville credited Cheylee Smith with a nice job in net.
The Dragons will try for their second win Wednesday when they visit Central Tech.
