A lone early goal proved to be just enough to earn Holley a narrow 1-0 victory over rival Kendall in a Genesee Region League girls soccer game this evening at Kendall.

Sierra Apicella scored the only goal the Lady Hawks needed as it turned out just six minutes into the game off an assist from Halee Passarell.

Kendall did have good scoring chances but had one shot rattle off the inside of the post 15 minutes into the first half and later couldn’t connect on a direct kick opportunity from 20 yards out 15 minutes into the second half.

Leah Rheinwald made seven saves to get the shutout in goal for the Lady Hawks.
