By Brian O’Shea, Plateau Daily News

Summit girls varsity soccer team faced off against Blue Ridge Early College twice last month and walked away victorious both times.

The Lady Bears won on April 12 at home with a final of 3-1, and hit the road the following week and earned a solid victory 8-0.

The Lady Bobcats were missing Goalie Peyton Bryson who was sick on game day.

Summit Captain Sarah Betty is a mainstay of the Lady Bears defensive line, but played on offense during the second game against BREC and earned a hat trick.

“She’s a mainstay on defense and will do anything for the team, but she sure showed out at right forward though,” said Robinson.
