The Osage Lady Indians finished off their regular season with a 10-0 shutout over Belle on Thursday night. The Lady Indians hold a record of 16-4, and will host their district tournament at home. Their first game is Monday, May 13 at 5 p.m. against Laquey. Osage’s defense has played very well this season, finishing the season with over 10 shutouts this season, and under 10 goals allowed by Class 1 teams. Their offensive front, led by a combination of Josie Verslues, Cassidy Culver and Monica Cisar has been deadly this season, with each of the girls going on scoring streaks, but never in the same game. The potential for a quick score is always there, and knowing that this team could have won more games by a higher margin, the Lady Indians are athreat to any team, regardless of the injuries they may be recovering from.
The Lady Lakers finished the season with a 5-0 win over Bolivar on Thursday night. They enter into the district tournament with a record of 14-6-1, and travel to Lebanon to take on Waynesville at 5 p.m. on Monday, May 13. Camdenton’s efforts on the field are perfect examples of team wins. While other teams focus on shutting down Miriam Taylor, the Lady Lakers’ ability to score from just about anywhere, with anyone, makes this team a deadly foe in district play. Their communication on the field allows them to work as a unit, and they excel at playing smart under the tutelage of Coach J.D. Hunter and his assistants.
The Lady Lakers faced Waynesville in early April this season and emerged with a 2-1 victory in rough weather and field conditions, so the team will most definitely be looking to show the Tigers how they play in more favorable conditions.
