      The Camdenton Lady Lakers advance to three wins and a tie on the season after defeating a tough Springfield Catholic team on Tuesday night by a score of 3-1.



      After leading 1-0 at halftime, thanks to a goal by senior Whitney Snow, Springfield Catholic tied it up at 1-1 in the second half.



      The Lady Lakers battled back, retaking the lead with another goal from Snow before Camdenton’s junior Bri Bullock hit one late to put the game away with a 3-1 win for the visiting Lady Lakers.



      Camdenton’s next match will be their first home game of the season, where they will host the Osage Lady Indians on Friday, March 28th, in a lake area showdown you won’t want to miss.

  • Laquey, Mo. – Monday night the Lady Hornets were throttled 7-0 by the Osage Lady Indians during a snow shower in Laquey.
    The girls might not have liked the low, 30 degree temperatures and the large, fluffy snowflakes falling about them, but Laquey girls soccer coach Doc Podurgal used an old soccer saying to describe his feelings about it all.
    “Every day is a beautiful day, all we need is a ball and a pitch,” Podurgal said. “Today was a great day to play soccer. This is was ideal soccer weather. It's snowing and cold, the kids don't think that, but it really is the ideal day.”
    Many of the girls were quick to discredit that after the game during their team meeting, laughing when he continued to describe the frigid night as beautiful.
    Couple the mean weather with the tough competition that strolled into town and the odds were definitely stacked against the Lady Hornets Monday night.
    Scoring started just a few ticks over a minute into the contest when Osage's Savannah Foster received a beautiful cross from Morgan Breneman who promptly nudged it in for the early lead.
    For a short while it looked like Laquey was going to be able to give the talented Lady Indians a run for their money as they fended off many scoring attempts.
    Senior goalkeeper Lisa Arrington saved six shots on goal and had to sweat a couple more that went high or wide.
    Breneman though, took advantage of an unsuspecting defense when a pass sailed high, up and over the defense and when the ball landed around the goal line she struck it into the left of the net.
    After her goal at the 38:01 mark, Breneman would get one more shot at the net before halftime, but Arrington was waiting for it and garnered another save for herself.
    The senior keep for Laquey ended up with 15 saves for the Hornets and made many more unbelievable plays that go unnoticed on the stat sheet.
    Several times she had to rush out to stop a through ball that got in behind her defense or defend an oncoming Lady Indian and fall on the ball before they could get their shot off.
    “Arrington did a wonderful job back there,” Podurgal said. “She just got overwhelmed. Osage has girls that can hit the ball as hard as any guy on our guys' team.”
    The second half is when those hard kicks started to find their targets.
    Breneman came out firing for Osage, making Arrington save three shots in the first five minutes of the second half and then sending one just wide.
    Finally, in the ninth minute of the second half, Breneman took a big rip from 16 yards out on the right side and it went top shelf.
    Page 2 of 2 - Four minutes later Monica Cisar took a quick kick inside the box and it slipped through the defense and by the keeper.
    Cassidy Culver also added a goal with about 12 minutes left in the game from an assist by Alexa Pittenger to make the score 5-0 for Osage.
    Then two tough-to-handle goals rolled in against Laquey.
    The first was a rebound kick off of a save by Arrington that Mandee Reahr got ahold of and sent in.
    Later, Bre Mundy stole a pass and kicked it past a shocked Arrington for the game's final score with 47 seconds left to make it 7-0.
    Osage's win gave the Lady Indians a 1-0 running start, which they promptly turned into a 2-0 record the next night with a 5-0 win over Fair Grove.
    The Lady Indians continued their aggressive attack on goal, taking 27 shots on goal on Tuesday night while allowing just four on their own net.
    Monica Cisar led the Lady Indians with two goals on the night, with the other three coming from Cassidy Culver, Morgan Breneman and Katie Kostuke. Culver, Cisar, Breneman and Megan Atkin all finished with an assist on the night, too.
    Cisar's first shot came after eight minutes into the game, but it wasn't until 19 minutes in that her third shot found the goal to score.
    Leading 1-0 at the half, Osage came out firing, as Cisar scored again three minutes into the second half.
    With 24 minutes left in the half, Culver pulled off the third Osage goal, and the floodgates opened, as Breneman and Kostuke scored goals before the end of the game.
    In the goal, Vanessa Webber finished with four saves on four shots for a perfect night.
    The 2-0 Lady Indians now prepare for their Friday night game at Camdenton, where they'll take on the 3-0-1 Lady Lakers.
    As neither team has actually lost a game yet, this game will decide which team will continue their win-streak.
    Kick-off is set for 5 p.m. on Friday, March 28 at Camdenton.
