The Class A 3rd ranked Central Catholic Knights overcame a determined Rossville team that was looking to upset the Lady Knights. The Lady Knights controlled the ball for long stretches at a time but every time Rossville won the ball, they would simply kick the ball down to our defensive end of the field where we would regain possession and then work the ball back up the field. After a Rossville foul ten minutes into the game, Emma Bullock took the free kick from about 40 yards and placed the ball right between the keepers arms and the crossbar for our 1st goal of the game. Midway through the 1st half, Karsyn Cherry played a ball to Caroline Lutz who sent a shot over the keeper making the score 2-0. 2 minutes later, Karsyn found the back of the net giving the Knights a 3-0 lead. 10 minutes before halftime, Rossville had a corner kick and on the corner kick the ball hit and went right to a Rossville player who was able to send the ball into the net cutting the Knights lead to 2. 11 minutes into the 2nd half, Anna Weeks mad a very nice run up the left side, where she then cut in toward the goal, made a very nice move around a defender and was able to get off a shot that went right past the keeper giving the Knights a 4-1 lead. 6 minutes later, Karsyn received a nice pass from Caroline and converted her 2nd goal of the day. 2 minutes later, Hailey Fallen played the ball to Caroline who drove the ball past the keeper giving the Knights a 6-1 lead.
There seems to be a theme to our games, and it followed the same pattern tonight. We possess the ball for around 60% of the game, take lots of shots (27 tonight), and deny the opposing team much possession (36%) or very many shots (2 tonight). Tonights win was again, a total TEAM effort. Great job, Ladies.
