Roundup: Wahconah girls soccer tops Brattleboro in Lady Patriot Classic
McKnight scored first just over four minutes into the second half, then bagged the winner with 11:28 to play. McKnight's winner came 30 seconds after Bratleboro's Hailey Derosia tied the game up.
Wahconah (1-2) had 30 shots on net during the game, something coach Meg Smith was happy to see after the team's loss to Burr and Burton in the Lady Patriot Classic on Thursday.
"When we played on Thursday night the girls did really well, they passed and played as a team, we just couldn't get anything in the net," she said. "We went home and I was like 'you need to just shoot.'
"Saturday, we came out a little slow, but we fixed that and we were able to get some shots on net."
Michaella Moncecchi had eight saves for the Warriors, who improve to 2-1 on the year.
