Highland girls’ soccer back on winning track

By Rob Hamilton


The Highland girls’ soccer team got back on the winning track Tuesday night when they traveled to Licking Heights and picked up a hard-fought 2-1 victory.

Licking Heights took an early 1-0 lead, but the Scots tied things up by halftime on a goal by Destiny Carpenter. There would be no further scoring until Highland got a penalty kick goal by Emma Hinkle with 5:35 remaining in regulation to give her team the win. Kayley Smith had a 13-save game in goal for Highland, who improved to 8-4-1 with the win.
