Lady Pacers shut out Christian Academy


The Switzerland County Lady Pacer varsity soccer team traveled to Christian Academy for varsity action on Monday night.

Coach Roy Leap said that both teams were evenly matched as play began; and play opened quickly, with both teams battling to record the first goal of the contest.

Despite the offensive fury, both defenses held, and the first half ended with a 0-0 score.

The second half saw the Lady Pacer offense get going.

The first goal of the game was scored by junior Kacie Kimmel, who scored off of a direct kick from 25 yards out. That goal was followed up in the 57th minute of play with another goal by the Lady Pacers, as freshman Taylar Jordan placed one in the back of the net, giving the Lady Pacers a 2-0 lead.

That score stood for the rest of the game, and Switzerland County returned home on the strength of a 2-0 shutout.

“We changed up our layout a little in the last two games and it has really worked,” Coach Leap said. “We are moving the ball around the field really well. Our defense is solid and we are able to stop the attack. I am extremely proud of this team.”

The win brings the Lady Pacers season record to 5-6-1 tie.

Switzerland County travels to Silver Creek High School tonight (Thursday); and then to Gallatin County this Saturday for a day game beginning at 10 a.m.
