<Complete Season Scores>

 (Story by Lance Harvey)

     The Chillicothe girls soccer team avenged an earlier loss to Cameron with a 2-1 road victory on Tuesday night. The Lady Hornets battled the Lady Dragons and the wind in the first half and kept the game scoreless until Cameron's Brenna Lobb redirected a carom off the post into the back of the Chilli net to make the score 1-0.
     Unfazed, Chillicothe's tenacity on the offensive end was rewarded near the end of the half when freshman forward Lindy Saunders beat her defender off the dribble and fired a shot past the Cameron keeper to even the score.
     The second half should have been favorable for the Lady Hornets as they had the wind at their backs, however, Cameron controlled the ball for most of the frame and were within inches of scoring as they sent two shots on goal which both deflected off the goal post. Finally, with five minutes left, Chillicothe's defense sent the ball forward to Saunders who again beat her defender and passed into the penalty are to an onrushing Kylie Barton. The senior forward made a nice first touch and blasted a low shot into the net to make the score 2-1.
     Toward the end of the game Chillicothe's defense stiffened and cleared several balls out of their area to secure the victory.
     "This was a total team victory but my hat goes off to junior Brooke Thomas, who was assigned the nearly impossible task of shutting down their standout forward, Anna Curtis. Brooke played one of the toughest games I've ever seen. She rose to the occasion like no other." Harvey also complimented the goalkeeper play of junior Cyrsten Lollar, commending her for her quick reactions and great field communication.
