The Marion County High School girls soccer team participated in four games this week, and struggled to defeats in all four. Monday of last week the team hosted Garrard County and was defeated in a shootout after the game was tied at zero after regulation. Two days later the Lady Knights took on Mercer County and was defeated by a final score of 8-0. On Thursday, the team traveled to Danville and was defeated 10-0. In the final game of the week, the Lady Knights were defeated by Montgomery County on Saturday by a final score of 5-0.
In the Garrard County game, the team was not able to score but had opportunities.
“We weren’t able to take advantage of our chances,” Head Coach Hart Hagan said. “We had nearly 10 breakaways on offense, but couldn’t score. Claire Hagan played a great game in goal for us.”
Hagan stopped a penalty kick in regulation to give the Lady Knights an overtime session to try to pick up the victory.
The Mercer County and Danville games were difficult for Coach Hagan.
“We didn’t do any of the things we worked on all through the year,” he said. “There was an overall lack of effort and competitiveness throughout.”
Both of these games were district games, and that made it even rougher to handle according to Coach Hagan.
The team looked better in the Montgomery County game on Saturday.
“They came out and played hard,” Coach Hagan said. “They did more of the things they needed to, and even though the score doesn’t look good on paper, we hope that this was a turning point in the season.”
The Lady Knights faced off against Pulaski County on Monday, but results were unknown as of press time. The team has a game at home against Boyle County tomorrow.
