The Lebanon girls’ soccer team fell to Camdenton on Monday night at ‘Jacket Stadium, 4-0.

Camdenton (8-4) got on the board in the first minute of the game when senior Raleigh Jones crossed a ball that freshman Aeryn Kennedy was able to head into the back of the net to give the Lady Lakers an early 1-0 lead. Ten minutes later Camdenton got another goal from Kennedy as she was able to rebound a shot that was deflected by Lebanon junior goalkeeper Abbey Schmidt and extend the Lady Lakers lead to 2-0.

Lebanon (9-8-1) had a great look at the 23-minute mark of the first half when junior Alyssa Long had a shot on goal that deflected off the top crossbar and that would end up being the ‘Jackets best look on goal in the first half. With ten minutes remaining in the first half Camdention senior Natalie Schulte got a nice pass from Kennedy and was able to sneak it past Schmidt to give the Lady Lakers a three goal lead at the half.

Lebanon head coach Matt Jerningan said he was proud of the way his girls responded in the second half and how they never quit fighting. “It is easy to get down on yourself after you give up a goal in the first 30 seconds of a game and we did not do that,” Jernigan said. “We had a look go off the post and a couple other opportunities as well that we missed.

“At halftime we just talked about playing with pride and playing with a chip on our shoulder. It was a very physical game and we kept fighting.”
