LVS wins despite mother nature

The Lady Vikings traveled to Plano Prestonwood tonight through rain and thunderstorms but all they needed was an 80 minute window to defeat the Lady Lions by a score of 5-0.  The game was originally scheduled to kick off at 7:30pm and got delayed only 15 minutes.

The wind picked up throughout the game and the rain began to fall starting at halftime and throughout the entire second half.

"We talk about external conditions all the time and tonight the conditions were very difficult to play in," said Lady Vikings head coach Jay Fitzgerald.

Senior, centerback Regan Hafer got the scoring started off a corner in the 20th minute and then 5 minutes later, Hannah Allred scored her first goal as a Lady Viking off a blast from the top of the 18.

Fitzgerald went on to say, "This game was very unpredictable with a strong wind and the second half going into a 30-40 mph wind we played some of the best soccer of the year."

The Lady Vikings scored 3 goals in the second half with Allred and Hafer adding one more each and Megan Bettinger scoring her 4th goal of the year.  Selena Guzman had 2 assists on the night while Brennan Flynn, Kate Kleiser, Emily Keoughan, and Bettinger all had one each.

Hafer and Allred on their thoughts on the conditions and the match.
Liberty Christian (2-0-0) is up next for the Lady Vikings (3-0-0) and that match will be tomorrow night, on the road, kicking off at 6:00pm in Argyle.

The JV host Pantego Christian varsity on Thursday at home at 6:00pm as well.
