The Logan County Lady Cougar soccer team travelled to the home of the Hopkinsville Lady Tigers on Tuesday night. The Lady Cougars had an off night and went down hard against the Lady Tigers and would end the night with a 2-10 loss.
The Lady Cougars had to put up a good defensive fight early in the game on Tuesday night. The Lady Tigers took control of the ball early and made the Lady Cougars defenders work hard to defend the goal. The Lady Tigers would break through the defense just five minutes into the game and score their first goal.
With just 20 minutes into the game, the Lady Tigers would have a solid lead of 4-0 over the Lady Cougars. But the Lady Cougars would fight hard and within three minutes the Lady Cougars would score twice on the Lady Tigers. Both goals were made by Lauren Allen and assisted by Emma Cartas and Breanna Baptiste.
The Lady Tigers would score again in the first half, leaving the Lady Cougars trailing behind 2-5 going into the second half of the game.
The second half of the game was not in favor of the Lady Cougars, the Lady Tigers would have possession for most of the half and score five more goals before the game was over. The Lady Cougars would have the tough loss of 2-10.
“Hopkinsville is a really good team, they are in the top 25 in the state. I knew this was going to be a tough game but I didn’t think it was going to be this bad. The girls did not play good and they didn’t keep their shape but what was worse was their attitudes,” said head coach Dan Duncan. “This is just a life lesson and how you come back from being down and we did not have that tonight and it was very frustrating. I wish we had a better showing.”
The Lady Cougars will compete in the district tournament next week but since they are undefeated in their district, the Lady Cougars will be automatically competing in the regional tournament.
