GREENEVILLE-With a season on the line, a pair of early long-range strikes made all the difference for the Greeneville High School Lady Devils.
A pair of goals in the opening 11 minutes of play was instrumental in setting the tone for Greeneville's 4-0 win over Cosby High School in a Region 1-A/AA tournament semifinal at Terry Bellamy Soccer Park on Tuesday evening.
Greeneville junior Olivia Collier scored the first goal from long-range into the top right corner of the net in the game's fifth minute. Senior Kelli Grissom followed six minutes later into the left side of the net for a quick 2-0 lead.
The pair of quick goals quietly silenced any momentum that Cosby (12-4-1) had built in their overtime win over University High in the quarterfinal round last Thursday night.
"Those two quick goals just took a lot away from us," Cosby High coach Ken Green said. "It seemed to break the momentum that we had coming in to (Tuesday's) game."
