NEW MARKET-The Southmont girls' soccer team dug itself a hole Thursday night and almost got out of it. Ultimately, they fell 3-2 to their Sagamore Athletic Conference rival Western Boone.

Western Boone jumped to a 3-0 lead before halftime, but Rachel Welliever scored two second-half goals to get the Mounties back in it. A third goal was disallowed because the sideline official ruled that the ball was out of bounds prior to a cross that Macy Zachary capitalized on. One of Welliever's goals came on a penalty kick.

"The first half we came out and made some defensive errors that led to their goals," Southmont coach Alfredo Villalpando said. "We weren't playing very well and had a hard time transitioning from defense to offense. We made some defensive substitutions at halftime and the second half was all ours."

The Mounties fall to 0-2 on the year and 0-1 in the Sagamore with the loss. They will play host to Danville Saturday at 10 a.m.
