Tigers score early, top Hot Dogs

Frankfort — Frankfort was looking to stay in the hunt for the Sagamore Athletic Conference title Wednesday while Lebanon was trying to avoid a third conference setback.

The Hot Dogs, 2-1 in SAC play heading in, were unable to mount much of an offensive attack while the Tigers scored three first-half goals en route to a 4-0 victory.

The loss pushed the Hot Dogs to 2-2 in the conference and 4-9 overall.

“One (goal) was a wind-blown ball and the other was a play when the keeper tried to make a play on the corner and it didn’t work out,” said Frankfort head coach Phil Hammen said. “It was unfortunate to get down by two quickly and then three eventually.”

Lebanon (6-5-1, 4-2 SAC) scored its first goal four minutes into the game courtesy of senior Allison Newby. Newby hit a high-arching lob from distance – about 35 yards out – that was placed perfectly over the head of Frankfort goalkeeper Adilene Santos.

It was Newby’s first goal of the season.

Just five minutes later, Lebanon struck again off a corner kick. Santos raced out for the ball on Mariah Allen’s corner kick, but couldn’t reach it as it landed right at the feet of McKenzie Lawrence, standing 10 yards out in the middle of the penalty box. Lawrence then put the ball into the open net for a 2-0 lead.
