The Rapids traveled to Maggie Walker tonight for their one and only scrimmage this preseason and came out with a 1-1 tie at the end of regulation.
James River dominated possession for the majority of the game and created several goal scoring opportunities, but couldn’t convert to put the game away.
However, sophomore Ellie Simonpietri collected a loose ball early in the half at the top of the 18 yard box and placed a quality shot over the keeper’s head into the back of the goal to put the Rapids up 1-0.
The team conceded later on off a cross and finish by Maggie Walker but the Rapids continued to dominate possession and created chances.
The team looks forward to opening up their regular season on Tuesday at home vs LC Bird at 4:00.
