Tigers can't hold off strong Pike offense

The Lebanon girls soccer team faced a tough test Saturday afternoon when they welcomed visiting Pike in for a non-conference match. And while the Tigers’ defense held on for as long as they could, Lebanon wasn’t able to muster much offense and ultimately fell to Pike 3-0. “I think today shows us a couple of things,” Lebanon head coach Rachel Becker said. “One, we are tired. This was our third very difficult game this week, so we are just tired. But I think it also shows that we can play with a lot of heart and that is what the girls did. They didn’t give up, they were pressuring the ball and were playing hard. I want to see a little more composure so we aren’t chasing the ball as much, but we have a week off coming up so we can work on that.” Pike had a majority of the attack in the opening minutes, but the Tigers’ defense held strong until 15;22 remained in the first half, when Pike’s XX broke free in the center of the box and put a shot into the right side of the net. About four minutes later, the Tigers were called for a handball in the box, and Pike’s Haley Morton made the penalty kick to make the score 2-0.
