Mayhem handed first loss
If this was the NFL, the 1972 Miami Dolphins would be popping champagne corks right about now.
There will be no undefeated team this season in the Borderland Women’s Indoor Soccer League after the Wright Physiotherapy Rockettes edged the previously-unbeaten Main Street Mayhem 3-2 last night at Fort High.
It was the squad’s first non-forfeit aided win of the season.
Shannon King added a single while Mary Waghorn picked up the win in goal in her first game since being reassigned from the Boston Pizza Ball Blasters.
That team was disbanded last week for not being able to field enough players on a consistent basis.
Jaymee Fiset, with her league-leading 18th goal of the year, and Abby Sanders replied for the first-place Mayhem (7-1).
Despite several solid saves, Phyllis Pierson not only took the loss in net but also took one for the team in the dying seconds of the contest when a Rockettes’ blast from in close hit her square in the face.
After taking a couple of minutes to regain her bearings, Pierson was all right.
But the two teams decided to end the game at that point.
League action resumes action next Wednesday at 7 p.m. when the Mayhem face the second-place Cater 2 U Queens (4-3).
