Havelock soccer falls 1-0 to defending state champs

Natalie Johnson had a breakaway opportunity. No one was in her way except for the opposing goalkeeper.

With less than five minutes remaining, and the Rams trailing by a goal, the junior blasted a shot that was stopped by White Oak’s Alexis Jones.

The Rams’ offense failed to score in a 1-0 loss to defending 3A state champion White Oak on Tuesday in Havelock.

“Natalie was on a fast break, and that’s the person you want on a fast break,” said Havelock coach Jeff Harris. “She had a great opportunity.”

White Oak knocked in its lone goal on a fast break by Ericca Lenhardt with two minutes remaining in the first half.

The Vikings had a golden opportunity to score with 10 minutes remaining, but Havelock goalie Caitlin Annunziata made a leaping save to push the ball out of the goal.

Lauren Seegel, Dominique Martinez and Alexis Delacruz all had shots on goal for the Rams over the final 40 minutes.
