The Highlands Ladybirds (2-4) soccer team played South Oldham tough Saturday.

But South Oldham came away with a 1-0 victory on a penalty kick. Highlands freshman goalkeeper Olivia McQueary made eight saves.

“We outpossessed them 70-30, outshot them and had more (corner kicks),” said Brian Wiefering, Highlands Head Coach. “Their goalie made a lot of great saves.
