|By BRITTANY SCOTT | News-Telegram Correspondent|
March 7, 2006 - The cool, breezy wind made Saturday a beautiful day for an afternoon soccer game at Gerald Prim Stadium. The Sulphur Springs Lady Cats couldn't make it a perfect afternoon, unfortunately, losing to North Lamar, 3-1.
The Lady Cats gave up the first goal early on in the first half,
but couldn't come up with one for themselves, leaving North Lamar head at
the half, 1-0.
Five minutes into the second half, North Lamar scored a second
goal, but three minutes later SSHS junior Gayle Grand-Lienard answered with the first goal for the Lady Cats.
With 12 minutes left in the game, North Lamar scored its third
and final goal of the game, putting them ahead 3-1.
The Lady Cats played strong to the end with a total of 16 shot
attempts, six from Grand-Lienard and five from freshman Bonnie Grafton, and seven saves by goal tender Kai'la Petty, but that just wasn't enough. North Lamar had 18 shot attempts and 10 saves.
Sulphur Springs (8-10-3) remains in third place in District 13-4A with a 3-3 record and nine points. But, the standings are getting crowded. Mount Pleasant (3-3) has pulled to within one point of Sulphur Springs, and North Lamar (2-4) is two points behind.
The Lady Cats can maintain their standing with a win tonight over last place Pleasant Grove (0-6, zero points). The game is scheduled for a 6 p.m. start at Gerald Prim Stadium.
