Tigers' speed thwarts Stars

Lebanon — The Lebanon Tigers girls soccer team has developed a streak of success against county rival Western Boone.

For the third-straight season the Tigers earned a shutout victory Tuesday night, topping the Stars 3-0 to improve to 2-2-1 on the season and 2-0 in the Sagamore Conference.

“We knew that this was going to be a big game,” Lebanon head coach Rachel Becker said. “Every conference game is a big game for us. To see us come out strong was great, and the shutout was really important.”

The loss ended Western Boone’s two-game win streak and dropped the Stars to 2-2-1 and 2-2 in the Sagamore Conference.

Western Boone head coach Jennifer Fisher said Lebanon did a better job of finishing its chances.

“I think we did a nice job on 90 percent of their chances, but it was a difference of a half a step a few times tonight,” Western Boone head coach Jennifer Fisher said. “They did a nice job capitalizing.”

Lebanon struck first in the 22nd minute when Katie Curtis slipped a through ball to MacKenzie Garner who made a touch around Western Boone keeper Allie Aguirre and put the ball into the net.

Eight minutes later, Curtis added a goal of her own to make it 2-0.

“Today we were able to use our speed and maintained our composure,” Becker said. “We were able to hit corners and that was really important. The girls played with each other well and were looking for each other up top.”

The Tigers added a third goal eight minutes into the second half when Garner passed a perfect through ball to Curtis and the senior captain scored her second goal of the night.

“I attribute it to their speed,” Fisher said of the goals. “They have tremendous speed up top and good finishers on top of that.”
