  • Marshfield, Mo. – The Camdenton Lady Lakers are on a roll.
    An undefeated roll.
    Tuesday night's match against Marshfield proved to be yet another notch on the belt for the talented Lady Laker soccer team, who recorded their fifth victory of the season with a 10-0 shutout.
    For Camdenton's goalkeeper Hanna Lowther, it was the third shutout of the season.
    For senior midfielder Whitney Snow, it was her best performance of the season, scoring four goals in the first half.
    That's right, four in the first half. Snow also recorded two assists in the game, leading the team to a non-conference victory.
    Camdenton looked to get off to a quick start against the Marshfield Lady Blue Jays, and five minutes into the game, Snow struck, giving Camdenton a 1-0 lead.
    One of the things that Coach J.D. Hunter has always  noted about his team is their smart plays and willingness to pass the ball off, an unselfish approach, especially in the case of seniors Whitney Snow and Morgan Henry.
    That became more evident to the Marshfield defense over the next 10 minutes or so, as both Danica Brewer and Bri Bullock scored, both assisted by Snow.
    But the focus of every defense that plays Camdenton always settles on Snow, and she showed why in the next few minutes.
    Morgan Henry played the last game with a hurt ankle, and coming off of that, she had a quiet game when it came to scoring. But her setups in the first half led to Snow connecting on back-to-back goals in less than 2 minutes.
    Henry finished the game with three assists, proving that even when she isn't scoring and recovering from injury, she's still dangerous.
    Another facet of the Lady Lakers' game is their depth, one that Coach Hunter is always quick to mention.
    After Snow scored her second and third goals, that also became apparent, as Karissa Lembke  managed a score, assisted by Raleigh Johns. Brewer followed that up with another goal, set up by Morgan Henry, and a final unassisted goal by Snow led the Lady Lakers into halftime with an 8-0 lead.
    Once again, that depth proved itself, as the Lady Lakers came out in the second half to win 10-0 after goals by two defenders, freshman Ireland Betta and senior Grace Scheidemantle, who were given the opportunity, a reward of sorts for all of the hard and unrecognized work they do as defenders. Grace's goal came off an assist by her sister, Faith, who found Grace on a cross for the goal.
    With that goal, six different Lady Lakers scored in the game.
    Coach Hunter has said before that he believes every minute is valuable playing time, and the Lady Lakers use every second of it to continue growing - and winning.
