Last night the girls traveled to West Lafayette for the Lady Red Devils’ Senior Night.
Whitney Pierce scored the game’s first goal off a well driven attack and cross from Nicole Burdette giving the Lady Kats their first ever lead over WL. It wasn’t moments later WL capitalized off a penalty kick to tie the game up.
Unaffected by the PK, the Lady Kats continued their quick improving transitional third attacks when we got them. Shortly before half we managed to force a quick right wing attack that ended up in creating a foul from the WL keeper and giving Nicole Burdette a PK shot herself. She scored on a well-placed left side-net shot. However, right before half, WL was able to even the score.
Though the Lady Kats had an exhausting second half and found themselves trailing 3-2 half way through, it wasn’t till the final 11seconds of the game WL went up 4-2 for the win.
The Lady Kats defense showed great composure under relentless attacks, minimum errors, and strong will. The offense took proper looks at the WL goal when they got the opportunities and was able to keep themselves in the game by doing so.
Great job all around and well improved upon.
