HARRISBURG — The Massac County Lady Patriots picked up an SIRR road win, shutting out Harrisburg 1-0.

Clara Elliott scored on a penalty kick in the 19th minute for the game’s only goal. The Lady Patriots’ defense made it stand up.

Harrisburg spent much of the second half on Massac County’s side of the field but could not find the back of the net. Destinee Justice had one of the better opportunities, but her shot slid just wide of the net.

Both teams are now 2-4 in conference play.
