Soccer is a tough sport and sometimes you have to “Sock her”, just to get a leg up on your opponent…..That’s what the Greensboro College women’s soccer team did today, as they won their quarterfinal game in the USA South Soccer Tournament…..Mary Randolph led the Pride over Shenandoah in GC’s tournament opener….Some players found themselves asking, “did coach say Sock her or Shock her?”….Either way Greensboro College was to get the 1-nil victory…..
Greensboro, N.C. — Freshman Mary Randolph (Bowie, MD/Bowie) scored the match’s only goal as Greensboro College defeated Shenandoah, 1-0, in a USA South quarterfinal match on Tuesday.
