LaVille High School
The LaVille Lady Lancers brought home the Sectional Championship Trophy Saturday night with a huge win over rival Argos Lady Dragons. With the dark clouds covering the sky in the West there was a slight suspicion that maybe this game would have to be rescheduled. As the heavy rains moved in, the thunder and lightening stayed at bay so kick off remained at 7 PM. It was a very slick surface with players from both teams loosing their footing and taking a tumble to the ground. The Lancers came out ready to play and stuck to the game plan. Senior Lindsey Aschenbrenner opened up the scoring in the 7th minute of play with a feed from Kelsey Aschenbrenner. 6 minutes later Senior Aryn Eash found the back of the net with an assist from Senior Madison Donahue. Argos capitalized on a foul in the penalty box when Samantha Stone scored off a penalty kick before the first half came to an end.
As the second half got under way it was back and forth between the Lancers and Dragons. Argos committed a foul in the box and Shelfie Zeiger stepped up and finished the penalty shot. With just a little over 20 minutes to play the refs had to postpone the game as lightening filled the sky. It’s an automatic 30 minute wait with no lightening or thunder before the teams could return to play. As play got under way after the lightening break it was back and forth play for 12 minutes until Aryn Eash finished out the scoring and secured the win. Micah Edwards and Trynitie Cox were both solid in the goal. Shelfie Zeiger, Haylie Cox, Kylee Platz, Emily Talaga and Sydney Han had an outstanding defensive effort. Cory Hess, Kamryn Gorka Abbi Creager, Emalie Franz, Hannah Clark and Madison Donahue controlled the midfield play.
It was awesome to see the excitement in the girls’ faces as they held the trophy! Congratulations Ladies.
