Mabank nips Greenville Lady Lions, 4-3

HIGH SCHOOL SOCCER

GREENVILLE —   Greenville’s Lady Lions battled a talented Mabank team to the final seconds before falling 4-3 in non-district soccer on Friday night at T.A. “Cotton” Ford Stadium.

  Mabank’s Savannah Henderson, who was one of the top scorers in the nation last season, scored all four goals for the Lady Panthers, who improved to 10-1-2 for the season. Henderson, who signed a letter of intent on Wednesday with Texas A&M University-Commerce, has scored 37 goals this season and put in 63 last season, when the 19-7-2 Lady Panthers went four rounds deep in the Class 4A playoffs.

  Texas Tech signee Maddy Crabtree scored all three of Greenville’s goals as the Lady Lions dropped to 6-7-1 heading into their District 19-4A opener at home on Tuesday night against Sulphur Springs.

  “They played hard,” said Greenville coach Caree McKethan. “Just made more mistakes. The theme of the season.”

  McKethan called Henderson a “great, great player.”

  “She’s unbelievable. We knew that coming in. She’s phenomenal. She’s a great, great player. So is Maddy. I think we have more dangerous players than they did. We just couldn’t finish.”

  Mabank led 1-0 at halftime after Henderson deftly dropped a shot over the head of Greenville goalkeeper Jenny Hardaway.

  The Lady Panthers upped their lead to 3-0 early in the second half after Henderson scored on a penalty kick and a breakaway.

  Crabtree then stepped up her game to boot in back to back goals to trim the lead to 3-2.

Henderson scored on another penalty kick to increase the Mabank advantage to 4-2.

  Mabank goalkeeper Keki Hill turned Crabtree away on a header and a putback before Crabtree scored again with about four minutes left after a Brinkley Henson touch on a free kick.

  Hill preserved the lead and the victory with a save on a header by Greenville’s Priscilla Carrillo without about two minutes remaining. Carrillo recently signed a letter of intent with Paris Junior College to play soccer.

  Mabank took the junior varsity contest, 7-0.
