LC soccer teams going to state

The Lamar County soccer teams have qualified for the state tournament. The Lady Trojans will go as the fourth seed from Region 4-AA. The boys are in third but could finish second and host a first round match. This will be the second straight year both teams have qualified for state. The Lamar girls dropped a pair of matches last week, falling to Morgan County 5-0 and Pike County 8-1. Jesse McDaniel scored Lamar’s lone goal on a rebounded shot after Sydney Tenney had taken a hard shot the Pike goalie blocked but could not secure. The Trojans fell to top seeded Morgan County 6-1 but came back to shut out Pike 3-0. It was Lamar’s second win of the year over the Pirates, whom they had never beaten before this season. The Lamar junior varsity teams had a good week, both finishing second in a tournament they hosted at Trojan Field. The girls opened, falling to Pike 2-1 before beating Griffin 3-0. Tenney scored the lone goal for Lamar, kicking a loose ball into the net after Katie Jo Daniel took a shot on goal. Tenney, Daniel and Kelsey Lawson scored against Griffin. The JV Trojans beat Pike 6-5, lost a 2-1 heartbreaker to Griffin then captured the second place trophy with a 4-0 win over Mary Persons. The win over Pike was the Lamar boys’ second of the week as they had beaten the previously unbeaten Pirates earlier in a regular season game. The Lady Trojans lost their regular season match with Pike 3-1 on a couple of late goals by the Lady Pirates. Daniel scored for Lamar, dribbling through the Pike defense and putting a rocket shot into the back of the net. The score was tied at the half and Lamar had several chances to score more goals but could not finish.
