5/3/10 Girls Soccer
at Chillicothe 7, Benton 5
<Complete Season Scores>

     It doesn’t happen that often where it comes down to an offensive struggle in soccer, but tonight it did.  The lady Hornets found themselves in a battle with the Lady Cardinals of Benton, but this time an offensive one with a total of 12 goals scored.  Tonight saw a hat trick plus one by Madeline Brick as she beat the keeper one on one 3 times and a 20 yard rocket for a total of 4 goals.  Tonight Madeline finally saw and did what she has been coached all year, she did not try to put the ball through the keeper, but finessed her way around her.  This was by far her best offensive game that I as her coach have seen. Her goals were assisted by Sarah Hussey in the 15th minute, Brooke Westcott in the 50th minute and Leslee Moore in the 77th minute.  Her partner up front, Rochelle Gillilan, also added a pair.  Unless you have watched several of the Lady Hornet games, you would not see how much defensive pressure Rochelle gets on the field, allowing for other players like Madeline. Brick to have a good night, as she draws a double and triple team most of the time opening the door for other things to happen if the ball is played right.

     Sarah Hussey also scored her first varsity goal in the 25th minute.  It was almost saved by the keeper, but was counted as she fell back towards the goal, allowing the ball to cross the line.  I might add that Sarah had a good game with an assist and goal, but played well on the defensive side as well.  My hat is off to her as well, since she played most of the game not feeling well.  Along with Madeline Brick and Leslee Moore who both were struggling with colds.
     Benton had a lot of fight in them and always seem to battle back, Chillicothe seemed to have it sowed up with a three goal lead but two quick goals by Benton in the 50th and 52nd minute tightened it up once again, 4-5.  LH scored in the 59th minute to go up 6-4, but
Benton answered back in the 65th minute making it 6-5, but the LH scored once again in the 77th minute putting icing on the cake for the 7-5 win.  Chillicothe out shot Benton 34 to 27.    

     Lacey Nibarger and Echo Followwill both had good games, with Lacey made god passes to set up the attack and Echo stepping up and beating Benton to the ball.   Cyrsten Lollar played well coming off the bench and gained some valuable playing time.
