Soccer: Lady Knights fight back from early deficit against Lumpkin
OAKWOOD -- The Johnson girls soccer team defeated Lumpkin County 3-1 on Tuesday at Billy Ellis Memorial Stadium in Oakwood.
Lumpkin County actually pulled ahead 1-0 early in the contest, but the Lady Knights (3-4-1, 3-0 Region 8-AAAA) answered through Sandra Macedo, who ran on to Karolina Guzman's pass before firing low and to her left.
Johnson pulled ahead 2-1 with 16:44 left to play in the first half when Guzman scored on a penalty kick.
The Lady Knights added another spot kick strike in the second half after Lydia Moon was fouled just inside the penalty area. Guzman stepped up to notch her second penalty score and put the game out of reach.
Johnson will travel to face North Hall on Friday.
