<Complete Season Scores>

     The Lady Hornets were definitely ready to play tonight as they came out playing from the whistle, but once again struggled getting the ball in the goal.  It was not until the 35th minute that Brooke Westcott laid the ball to Lacey Nibarger, who then squeaked it past the Lafayette keeper for the score.  The tides were turned tonight as Chillicothe had the shot advantage of 19 to 2 in the first half, much different than against LeBlond. The LH were playing into combinations and using the left wing a lot to build the attack, which definitely was different than they had been doing and was a welcomed sight.  The LH shut down the attack of the Lady Irish and controlled the ball the majority of the half, just missing with some passes that had the intentions of being there for a score. 

     The second half seemed to come alive a little on both sides where Chillicothe scored 3, but allowed the Lafayette 2.  Chillicothe struck in the 49th minute where Rachel Gillilan carried the ball most of the field to beat the keeper on a hard shot.  Gillilan was flanked by Madeline Brick all the way which helped pull defenders away just enough.  It would only take 2 minutes for Madeline Brick to score and pick up Chillicotheís 3rd goal.  Lafayette made a move to change keepers bringing a very fast and rested player into the attack, which paid dividends for them as Sam Wood was making a run for goal was challenged from behind and brought down in the penalty area by Catherine Tipton, allowing Wood to step to the spot for a penalty kick.  She nailed the ball that was partly blocked by Me. Brick, but still made it past her.  The LH would score once more on one of the prettiest plays all season for them as Madeline Brick played a good ball to the right side that Kylie Barton had to work hard to keep in bounds, made a couple touches and sent a great ball across finding Gillilan feet and sliding it past the Lafayette keeper.  Lafayette was not through though as Wood caught up to a through ball, being heavily defended by Echo Followwill and still managed to get a shot off past Me. Brick for their second and last goal.  As time ended the LH would even their record at 6-6, with the win.

     It was very good to see Addie Stottlemyre playing well after an off night against LeBlond.  Followwill found her old form once again, working to win balls and playing tough.  Brooke Westcott had her first assist and played well in the midfield, almost getting her first career goal a couple times.  Sarah Hussey stepped it up and played very tough and determined in the center midfield.  Another freshman Brooke Thomas was there to let Lafayette know they would be challenged for every ball that was around her.  Jordon Gardner made several good runs in the first half, spreading the defense and allowing scoring chances.
