Peaster named Peach Belt Goalkeeper of the Week
Young Harris College's Mckenna Peaster has been named the Peach Belt Conference Women's Soccer Goalkeeper of the Week ending Oct. 2.
Peaster recorded her second shutout as Young Harris extended their winning streak to three games with a 1-0 win on the road at Georgia Southwestern State University in their lone game of the week. The sophomore keeper from Clarkesville, Georgia, made three saves in the clean-sheet effort. After a scoreless first half, she made all three of her saves after YHC took the lead just after the start of the second half, two of them coming in the last five minutes. Both of Peaster's shutouts this season have come during the current three-game streak. She is currently ranked fourth in the PBC in saves per game (4.17) and seventh in shutouts per game (.333). The Mountain Lions return to the YHC Soccer and Lacrosse Field Wednesday (Oct. 5) when they host No. 3-ranked Columbus State University in a 2 p.m. PBC match.
