The Argos girls soccer team won its Northern Indiana Soccer Conference-opener 2-0 at Trinity Thursday.
In the ninth minute, Megan Ditmire beat a player on the right wing and crossed the ball, where Mariah Lineberry slipped it past the keeper. The Dragons outshot the hosts 13-5 (shots on goal), but while the Dragons dominated play, the Titans managed to keep it close as the visitors sent shot after shot over the goal. Argos sent nine shots high over the goal in the second half alone.
Late in the first half, a Titan forward got through for a shot, which was saved by Argos’ Jenni Fishburn. However, on the ensuing rebound, the hosts hit the right post, and sent a third attempt high over the bar with a wide open net before them.
About 10 minutes into the second frame, Lineberry found Katie Williams inside the penalty area, and the junior striker turned and put the ball in the net to give the Dragons a bit of breathing room.
The Dragons moved to 3-1 (1-0 NISC), while the Titans fell to 2-2-1 (0-1).
Argos Invitational play begins Saturday with the Dragons taking on LaVille at 1 pm. Northwood faces Munster at 3 pm.
