Girls Junior Varsity Soccer, Girls Varsity Soccer · LHS Lady Tigers Soccer Defeats Southmont 2-1 in Home Opener

The LHS girls soccer team hosted South Mont. in the Lady Tigers first home match of the season.  The Tigers came out victorious in a late goal winner from Madison Maher to prevail 2-1. The second goal came with under 2.5 minutes left in the match and was a PK resulting from an intentional hand ball in the box preventing an on target shot from the Tigers.  The guilty South Mont. defender was issued a red card for the hand ball.  Madison Maher coolly put the PK in past the GK by slotting the ball with pace to the lower left side of the goal and side netting.  Maher opened up the Lady Tiger scoring with strike from inside the 18 assisted from sophomore Lily Haines. The Lady Tigers entered the half up 1-0 with majority of the possession and action taking place in the South Mont. defensive half.  The Lady Tigers responded nicely coming off a tough contest the previous night in West Lafayette.  The defense once again played strong lead by the center back pairing of Lizzie Hart and Tori Bennett. GK Erin Huse registered 5 saves in the match.   The Lady Tigers will be back in action this Saturday at noon hosting a rescheduled game vs Pike
