FAYETTEVILLE — Despite losing at Pine Forest Friday night, Richmond Senior girls soccer coach Bennie Howard is seeing signs of improvement.
Pine Forest blanked Richmond 3-0.
“It’s like building a house, we are laying the foundation and starting to put up walls,” Howard said. “We’re growing as a team and it’s starting to show. I thought our goalie Meredith (McLean) played well and made some good saves. I thought we grew up a little bit.”
Howard said the Raiders (1-2-1) had a handful of scoring opportunities in the contest but were unable to find the back of the net.
The Trojans led 1-0 at halftime then added an insurance goal 10 minutes into the second half.
Richmond will return to the field 6 p.m. Monday at home against Marlboro County. The Raiders shutout the Bulldogs 9-0 earlier this week.
In the junior varsity game, Pine Forest scored the game’s only goal with less than 90 seconds remaining to pull out a 1-0 victory.
