Converting chances is the most crucial aspect to soccer. If you can’t score, you can not win. Although the Allen Community College Lady Devils were defeated by Cowley Community College Wednesday, they had a chance to take the lead early on. 

In the early stages of the first half, sophomore Destinee Smith was in on goal with a chance to put ACC ahead. Perhaps the forward took too long to strike the ball goalward, and the best opportunity of the afternoon went begging. 

“She has to do two things. Either she shoots it sooner, or she pushes that ball to the side hard and puts it away as the goalkeeper dived for it,” head coach Jeremy McGinnis said.
