CBC opens season with victory

CONWAY – Opening the 2023 season with a rare night contest, Central Baptist College women’s soccer hosted the Lions of Freed-Hardeman University this evening at Centennial Soccer Complex. Vitoria Loiola’s 86th minute goal, her second of the contest, gave CBC (2-0) a 2-1 victory over the Lions (0-2).

Vitoria Loiola’s second goal secured a CBC win.

Loiola’s first goal of the contest came unassisted in the 36th minute and tied the contest at one after FHU had scored on a penalty kick rebound in the 14th minute. Amanda Parrerias assisted on the winner, her first assist of the season. Bailey Walerczyk posted three saves to earn the win in net as the Mustangs outshot the Lions 10-8 overall and 6-4 on goal.

Next up for CBC is a trip to Texarkana, Texas, on Saturday for a contest against the Eagles of Texas A&M-Texarkana. Kickoff from Morgan Field is scheduled for 4 p.m.
