The DPCA Eagles girls soccer team opened the season at home today battling against the Lady Cougars from Hyland Christian School in Westminster.  First half play saw the ball more frequently approaching Hyland's net, but the Cougar's defenders were able to keep the Eagles to a single score.  As the game progressed, the Cougars were able to make more plays with the ball on the Eagles' side of the field, but DPCA defense and goalkeeper Keely Campbell stayed consistent and held the Cougars to a single goal as well.  Despite consistent attempts by both teams throughout the remainder of the game, the defense on both sides held fast, and the match ended with the score tied at 1-1.

Warm weather brought out the fans, and the Eagles enjoyed a good crowd in the stands.
