Lakeland Christian Academy Girls 1, Central Noble 1
It was another physical game for Lakeland Christian Academy. The first half they had better possession that would lead to multiple chances that didn’t go in. Central Noble was content to counter rush in the first half not getting too much of a build up going forward. LCA goalie Finley Hobbs didn’t get tested too much in the fist half.
The second half the game got more physical then the first half. LCA was again able to generate good scoring opportunities but were not able to capitalize until later in the half when Avery Hobbs dribbled in and passed off the ball to Liza Schmitt who shot the ball low and hard into the near corner from just outside the 18. It didn’t take long for Central Noble to respond scoring 5 minutes later when a cross was sent over and headed in by a LCA defender who was attempting to clear. The game would end in a 1-1 tie.
“We are still growing and getting better,” said LCA coach Nat Raber. “We need to clean up some of our passes in the midfield. Our offense is starting to gel some as I thought we had more quality chances and just need to capitalize.”
Lakeland Christian Academy Boys 1, New Prairie 0
The long trip to New Carlisle was well worth the time and mileage as the #17 LCA Cougars had the only goal in the match with their nickname namesakes. In the 30th minute, Micah Burns executed a brilliant cross off a corner kick that was banged into the goal by Brayden Lane to take the lead in the match, although it took another 50 minutes to seal the win.
LCA won the shot battle, putting 10 on goal against New Prairie’s 7. The victory raised the locals’ record to 5-2.
“We were playing short handed today and were still able to come away with a win,” said LCA skipper Dan Miller. ” We created a lot of scoring opportunities today and should have scored more. The New Prairie backline was very organized and made things difficult.”
LCA’s next match will be at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday when they host Blackhawk Christian.
