“We played a total team game and our coaches were very proud of our girls,” head coach Tully Anderson said. “It is so difficult for our ladies playing a long season and in very hot conditions with only 13 healthy players.”
— On Saturday, September 1st, the Madison Lady Cubs came to town, and the Lady Pacers battled in 90 degree heat for the first 30 minutes to keep Madison in check. Madison scored just before the half to go up 1-0.
In the second half, the Lady Cubs came out fast and scored in the first minute to take a 2-0 lead. Madison then added two more goals to finish out the game with a 4-0 advantage.
Coach Anderson said that Alli Bruce, Kaitlyn Yeary and Emily Pike played well for Switzerland County.
“We had a few chances but couldn’t find the back of the net,” the coach said. “Raylinn Kappes had a shot bounce off the inside post and go straight to the Cubs Keeper and that seemed to take some wind out of our sails in the first half. Our ladies never quit and continue to make our parents and coaches proud.”
