The Lady Vikings JV and Varsity teams hosted Keller High School on Tuesday night. The JV were involved in an end to end battle in the first half but down 2-0 early. Just before the half, Victoria Watson was able to get the Lady Vikings on the board. Unfortunately, the Lady Indians were able to punch in 2 more goals in the second half of play downing the JV by a score of 4-1.
The varsity on the other hand started strong and finished strong, improving to 10-4-1 with a 2-1 victory. Abby Geiser scored her 12th goal of the year as she was able to intercept a Keller pass and take it behind the goalkeeper for an early Lady Viking goal.
LVS head coach, Jay Fitzgerald commented, "This was one of the best starts to a game so far this season."
The Lady Indians were able to get themselves on the board in the 32nd minute forcing the Lady Vikings to pick up the level starting in the second half of play. With a sustained attack the majority of the match, the Lady Vikings were able to get themselves back on top with a 60th minute strike from Laci Earixson, her 10th of the year.
The game did pick up after the Lady Vikings took the lead with chances from both sides. Not forgetting what happened the year before when the 2 teams met, the Lady Vikings were not going to let the lead slip away and the 2-1 result stood.
Next up for the Lady Vikings is the Bear Cave Classic and both teams have something to prove. The JV is looking to avenge a championship match loss from last year while the varsity look to defend their 19 round, PK shootout championship over Denton Ryan in last years event.
The JV kicks off at 8:30am tomorrow morning with the varsity following at 9:50am. The forecast is for rain and the schedule may change a bit but as of now, both teams are scheduled to play 2 games.
