Lady Panther Soccer Beats Principia to Advance to SLIAC Championship

ELSAH, Ill.-- The GC Women's Soccer Team upset the No. 1 seed, Principia,winning the game 1-0, to advance to the SLIAC Championship.

Kieley Leach was credited with the game's lone goal but said it was a "team effort," as the ball was sent into the box when Claire Conwell-Vargas took a beautiful corner kick that sent the ball into dangerous territory. The ball bobbled around in Principia's defensive end, with both teams trying to gain possession, but Leach had the last word, putting the ball in the back of the net and bringing GC up 1-0.

"The outcome tonight could not have been accomplished without incredible team effort," Leach explained, "Not only did we come out with a win, but we made a mark in GC history!."

This win marks the first time in school history that Greenville has beaten SLIAC powerhouse, Principia.

The women will play in the SLIAC Championship game Friday, Nov. 2 at 7:00 p.m. when they take on Webster in hopes of winning the tournament for the first time in GC Women's Soccer history.
