Camdenton falls to Waynesville in double overtime and Osage shuts down Fulton
Camdenton comes up short in double overtime battle with Waynesville
It was a tough finish for Camdenton when the Lakers visited Waynesville Tuesday night in Ozark Conference action.
Regulation was not enough to decide it and it was the Tigers who found a way to put the ball in the back of the net as they handed the visitors a 3-2 double overtime defeat. According to Camdenton coach Chris Byington, there was a questionable call that led to the game-winning goal but it was certainly no excuse.
"You can't base the game off calls made or not made. The boys played well and came back from a two-goal deficit in the second half," Byington remarked. "In my opinion we had the better of the second half and overtimes, but it just did not go our way."
Connor Hugher and Josh Gerdiman both scored for the Lakers who fell to 2-4 overall and 0-3 in the Ozark Conference. Camdenton will host Hillcrest on Tuesday at 5 p.m.
"It was a good battle between both teams. Like in life, sometimes you give your best effort and it does not turn out the way you planned," Byington said. "I am proud of the boys for their tenacity and mentality. We just have to keep progressing and improving."
Osage shuts down Fulton
School of the Osage added another win to its resume Thursday night after sending the Fulton Hornets home with a 4-0 defeat.
Senior keeper Parker Jett protected his net and picked up his fourth clean sheet of the season while the junior combo of Garrett Long and Layton Jennings scored a pair of goals each for the Indians.
"I was especially pleased with the defensive play of juniors Bobby Colonius and Tristan Satterlee who did an efficient job stepping to the ball at the point of attack and keeping play out of the middle of the field and away from the front of our goal," Osage coach Jason Long said.
Osage (4-2-1) hosts Jefferson City on Tuesday at 5 p.m.
