Soggy field doesn’t stop Lady Cougars

Lions 7-0.

Greenfield’s Sammie McCoy started the scoring early in the first half and

Emily Koers followed with a goal at the 13 minute mark. Allie Frazie

scored with :54 one the first half clock to make the score 3-0 at the


Rushville keeper Nici Martin fought off 26 shots by the Lady Cougars in

the half.

Frazie and Koers scored two quick goals for the Lady Cougars in the second

half. Greenfield added a pair of goals later in the half to finish off the

7-0 victory.

The Lady Lions (4-8-1) host New Castle at 6 p.m. today for Senior Night.

Lady Lions, Pirates battle to tie

Visiting Greensburg won the first half and Rushville won the second half of the soccer game Tuesday. The end result was a tie 1-1.

Greensburg out-shot the Lady Lions 11-7 in the first half, but it was a hand ball in the box that allowed the Lady Pirates to take the early lead. Greensburg’s Kaeli Fong took the penalty kick and found the net to give the Lady Pirates a 1-0 lead at the end of the first half.

Rushville came out in the second half with a goal at the 36:43 mark. Abby Whitaker passed the ball to Caroline Kuhn, who beat the Lady Pirate defense and keeper for the goal. Neither offense could break through with a game-winning goal as the result was a tie.

For the Lady Lions, Kuhn had seven shots and one goal. Shyla Sharp added two shots. Mikayla Dougherty, Kaley Flannery and Taylor Gilbert all had one shot. Keeper Nici Martin finished with 13 saves.
