Kirby United : Own goal & Maria Oliver
Holy Cross : Maria Mackey

Holy Cross challenges Kirby United 

On Wednesday evening at KGV, it was the new kids on the block wearing the Holy Cross colors playing the older more experienced Kirby United veterans. Early indications in the season are leaning the way which is indicating, this is going to be a very heated rivalry  
Kirby United played a solid first half and it showed on the scoreboard as Kirby took a well deserved 2-0 first half lead. Early in the second half Kirby Unite's #14 had the chance of a lifetime, she was positioned to put Holy Cross away.  She for some mysterious reason was left standing all alone on the six yard box with full control of the ball and only the keeper to beat. However, it didn't happen, she put the ball right in the goalies arms.  After that miscue, Holy Cross became rejuvenated and caught their second wind and as a result they took control of the final thirty minutes of the game. They scored with a little less than 20 minutes remaining on a beautiful strike from Maria Mackey. For the rest of the contest it appeared to be, all Holy Cross, KGV became like a, "Sea of Red". However, the difference in the match was the Kirby United goalkeeper. She was simply outstanding !!
