first_imgThe Batesville Lady Bulldogs suffered their first loss of the season on Monday night to the Mr. Vernon Lady Marauders by a final score of 4-1. Mt. Vernon came out ready to play from the get go and had Batesville on their heels for the first 15 minutes.With 28 minutes to play in the half, the Lady Marauders attacked the right wing as the Batesville defense retreated. The ball was dropped to the top of the 18 as Stindle stepped into her shot and hit it past the outreached gloves of Olive Cerniglia. Batesville wouldn’t go down without a fight however. With 10 minutes to play in the half, Carlie Werner drew a foul deep in Mt. Vernon territory. Denise Davalos stepped up with a driven free kick that the goalkeeper had no chance to save. The 1-1 game didn’t last even a minute, as the Lady Marauders drove right down the field on the kickoff and netted their second goal of the game.In the second half, Batesville showed their toughness and played very well. They outshot Mt. Vernon 11-2 in the second half and 15-10 for the game, but it was Mt. Vernon’s shots that ended up on the scoreboard. With the game 2-1 for much of the second half,  the Lady Marauders would get two counterattack goals away from the run of much of the play in the half. The first one came with 30 minutes to play and the second came with 10 minutes to play.“I was pleased with our effort in the second half. We showed our toughness and didn’t get down on ourselves. We are battling a lot of injuries right now so the key to this week is getting healthy while still trying to compete at a high level. We will learn from this match and begin building our momentum back these next 2 weeks before sectionals.” Coach Laker commented on the match.The JV girls soccer team took on the Mt. Vernon Mauraders on Monday evening. With only 40 minutes to play the girls started with intensity and finished that way as well. With possession being about 60/40, with the Bulldogs in control, they had many opportunities to take. Unfortunately, the ladies were unable to finish a shot and scored no goals in the half. The Lady Mauraders on the other hand were able to finish one goal and maintain their lead. The ending score was 0-1.JV Writeup by Coach Griggslast_img
