PARCHMENT PUSHES BUT LAKERS STAY STRONG

Jack Janson

BERNARDS- This Friday, the Lake Michigan Catholic varsity girls soccer team took on Parchment at the Lakers home field. Even though by the end of the game Parchment was not able to win they still competed hard throughout the entire game.

The first half was the more action packed part of the game with all of the goals being scored during this half. To start the Lakers off with a 1-0 lead, Kathleen Krieger, sophomore, was able to put one in early. Quickly after that

LMC freshman, Maggie Tidey, was able to

head one in thanks to a cross by Katie Sullivan, which gave the lakers a lead

by two.

By this point the game seemed fairly one sided and it was just a matter of time before the Lakers would score next. It seemed like Parchment could not get an offensive break.

With about 20 minutes remaining in

the second half Tidey was able to dribble

past the Parchment defense and get an easy goal.

Before halftime, Sullivan was able to make the score 4-0 giving Parchment very little hope.

Maggie Tidey said after the game that, “We had good long passes to the forward,” which may have been the reason for her two goals.

The second half was much slower and no goals were scored. Although the ball was on Parchment’s half nearly the entire, time the Lakers could not finish. Also, Parchment still could not find a way to get it behind the Laker’s defense.

Parchment seemed to start getting very frustrated and fouled the Lakers many times, ending the game with two yellow cards. Despite the physicality brought to the field by Parchment, the Lakers stood their ground and finished the game with a 4-0 victory over the Parchment panthers.
