On Sept. 26, the Lady Panthers came to Powell Field hoping to avenge an earlier 2-1 loss to Lyon County at Dawson Springs a month earlier.
Dawson would have settled for a repeat of the earlier game, since the Lady Lyons scored early and often en route to a 7-1 victory. All seven goals were tallied by Jill P’poole, which gives her 35 for the season and a whopping 113 for her career.
Coach Megan Sholar offered her thoughts after the victory.
“We were heading into the Dawson game with some tough losses behind us so we worked hard in practices to get everyone refocused on our goals,” Sholar said.
“I was glad to see them step out on the field determined to win that night. Everyone played hard and we had an excellent win. It was a very tough game, Dawson towards the end got really physical but my girls kept their cool and kept playing. I was really proud of how they stayed composed and kept playing till the end, it was the win we were looking for (and needed). Our number one goal has always been to win the district championship again and I feel like everyone is starting to see that that is a strong possibility now.”
The Lady Lyons have three games left in the regular season, Ballard on Oct. 1, Webster County on Oct. 3, and Union County on Oct. 7.
All these games are at home.
The Lady Lyon record stands at 4-8-0 for the season.
