Lady Trojans win two region matches

By Walter Geiger The Lamar Lady Trojans (5-2, 2-0) notched two region wins on the soccer pitch last week as they tightened up their defense and allowed no goals to opponents. On Feb. 28, LC hosted Spencer (0-3, 0-1) and routed the Greenwave Owls 10-0. Rachel Patterson, Hailey Hadsell and Victoria Boland scored two goals each for LC while Becky Taylor, Skylar Bedgood, Kayleigh Swanson and Caylin Cornelius had one goal each. Cornelius returned to the team following an injury that sidelined her during the Trojan Cup tournament. Boland joined the team after helping the Lady Trojans basketball team to the first round of the state tournament. ‘After the disappointing loss to Locust Grove in the tournament, the girls have been putting in a lot of extra work at practice. That hard work paid off. It is nice to have multiple players scoring so our opponent can’t key in on one or two players,’ coach Wayne Calvert said. On Friday, LC traveled to Callaway (2-4, 1-1) and notched a 3-0 win over the Lady Cavaliers. Tomiyah Alford got free at the 15 minute mark of the first half for LC’s first goal. Hadsell got two first half goals, the first coming on a beautiful left-footed shot. The two teams played a scoreless second half. ’Our defense takes a lot of pride in what they do and they really played well Friday night. Callaway has a couple of really strong offensive players that pressured us all night. Our defense kept their pressure up and Ashley Haddock had some key saves in goal. The girls are on a streak of 10 straight region shutouts. The last time we gave up a goal to a region opponent was April 17, 2015,’ Calvert noted. Lamar hosts Dublin (23) tonight in a non-region match. First touch is 5:30 p.m. Region play resumes Friday when they travel to Temple (2-2). LC is ranked #3 in the latest Class AA top 10 poll. Junior Varsity The JV Lady Trojans beat Jackson 8-1 Feb. 27. Scorers included Boland, Kaylah Grammer, Grace Albritton, Madison Smith and Porter Sherrit. On Feb. 2, the local lost to FPD 9-0. They played a strong first half, holding a talented team to just two goals.
