Central Crossing 3,
Teays Valley 2
The Vikings hosted Central Crossing on Thursday for senior night.
Both teams struggled to control the match throughout much of the first half, but Teays Valley was able to create the better of the chances overall.
Despite several good chances on goal, the Comets actually struck first when Georgia Lasko scored from 18 yards out in the 28th minute, leaving the eventual halftime score at 1-0.
The Vikings fought back hard in the second half and pulled level midway through the half when Calli Henderson connected with Brook Jacob who finished to make it 1-1.
Three minutes later, Central Crossing netted a free kick and finished the rebound to take the lead again.
Teays Valley responded again, however, as Aimee Watson finished a pass from Jozie Hammond to level the score again with 10 minutes remaining.
With just over eight minutes remaining, Lasko once again sprang free and her effort from distance found the net making the final 3-2 in favor of the Comets.
The Vikings continue non-league play on Saturday with a matinee against visiting Lancaster.
