Two seniors and a freshman accounted for three of the five goals scored by the Lees-McRae women's soccer team on Saturday as the Bobcats finished the regular season with a 5-0 win over Southern Wesleyan.  But a sophomore, Taylor Barrineau, who played high school soccer at East Lincoln, scored two goals in helping her team secure the #4 seed in the upcoming Conference Carolinas tournament.

The win gave the Bobcats a regular season record of 11-3-2 (8-2-2 in the conference).  Lees-McRae scored just three minutes into the game as senior Pali Smith made her third goal of the season.  The Bobcats tallied two more shots-on-goal in the next seven minutes and in the 14th minute as senior Alexa Todd buried her fifth goal of the season

Taylor Barrineau scored Lees-McRae's third first half goal at 28:49. 

After 20 minutes of scoreless action to open the second half, Barrineau scored her second goal of the game and sixth of the season to extend the lead to 4-0.
Freshman Sierra Shuey added the fifth and final goal on a header at 67:51.  

The Bobcats will enter the Conference Carolinas postseason tournament as the #4 seed, but will have to wait until Wednesday to see who they will host in the quarterfinal round on Saturday (Nov. 6th).

If you would like to see Taylor play, it's about an hour and 45 minutes drive to Banner Elk (allow two hours). You can get there via NC181 north from Morganton to Linville, then NC105 north, or take US321 to Boone and then southwest on NC105, finishing up by taking NC184 to Banner Elk.
