PROCTORVILLE, Ohio — The Gallia Academy High School girls soccer team lost 3-2 in an away Ohio Valley Conference game to the Fairland Lady Dragons Tuesday evening.

The Blue Angels (4-8-2 overall, 2-4-1 OVC) took the initial lead 23 minutes into the first half off of a penalty kick by senior Preslee Reed, but the Lady Dragons (7-4-1, 3-1-1) tied the game up less than 10 minutes later.

Tuesday’s game remained tied into the second half when Fairland scored two girls in a 6-minute span.

Reed made another penalty kick with two minutes to go to bring the score within a goal, but the Blue and White were unable to get that last goal needed for a tie.

The Blue Angels will be back on the field at 7 p.m. Tuesday when they travel to face the Point Pleasant Lady Knights.
