New Albany scored one goal in each half and the Bulldog defense kept Jeffersonville under control in a 2-0 win at Jeffersonville in Wednesday’s girls’ soccer action.
Stephanie Iglesias scored on an assist from Kylie Harris midway through the opening half to opening the scoring.
The score remained 1-0 until Rachel Geveden — the Bulldogs’ top scorer on the season — gave the Bulldogs an insurance goal with six minutes remaining in the contest.
“Hard-fought win,” New Albany coach Tim Quakenbush said. “Jeff played us well. We’re improving with our possession of the ball each game since [a 6-0 loss to] Floyd Central [last week], but we’re still missing some good opportunities to score.”
Much of the credit for the win goes to the New Albany defense and Rachel Bowden, in particuar, Quakenbush said.
The game was a pinkout with both sides wearing pink in honor of breast cancer awareness.
New Albany, which hosts Providence next Tuesday, improves to 6-7 on the season and 3-3 in the Hoosier Hills Conference. Jeffersonville (3-7-1, 0-3-1) travels to Floyd Central next Tuesday.
