The girls celebrated their Senior night tonight and played their hearts out in the last home game. Kailey Clark and Chloee McDaniel shared in the amount of kills from the middle and outside respectively. Kendall Beier also had several strong kills from the right side.
The scores from last Thursday’s game against Station Camp were as follows:
25-18, 25-15, 25-21.
We lost 3-0.
Mental toughness seemed to have been the weakest part of our play on that day, so we learned from it and are ready to meet them again in the district tournament. Although we lost the game, we had several outstanding blocks by Elizabeth Epley that gave the team rejuvenating energy throughout the game. We also had some powerful kills from the outside hitter, Chloee McDaniel and Allyson Grava. In all, though, we weren’t able to bring our best game as a team.
The Lady Bucs traveled to Gallatin HS on Wednesday to make up a game which had been rained out last week. The game was rather sluggish by both teams as the Lady Bucs controlled play early on and had a few chances that missed. The Green Wave countered a few times but never got a really good scoring chance in the first half. After a relatively good start the Lady Bucs play was uninspiring and lacked energy. The half ended at 0-0.
The second half was a bit different as the Lady Bucs capitalized on their chances and Gallatin missed several great chances to score, including 2 open net chances. Lady Buc goalie, Savannah Jarrett, came out to play ball but missed and in effect, the Green Wave missed their chance to win. Hailey Burroughs lofted a shot from about 30 yards out which got over the Green Wave keeper’s head for the first goal of the game with about 30 minutes left in the game to give the Lady Bucs a 1 -0 lead. The second Buc goal came with Kendra Mueller finishing off a “pinball” in the box with about 20 minutes left in the game. Burroughs got another goal late in the game after collecting her own rebound which got past the keeper and fighting off two Gallatin defenders to score and make the final 3-0 Lady Bucs.
Coach Cooke told BA.com, “we played a much better 2nd half, too many mental errors in the first. Very happy we got the win but it’s time to move on and get prepared for the White House game on Tuesday.”
With the win, the Lady Bucs improved to 9-3-1 on the season, 4-0 in 9AA play. Next Tuesday at 7pm, the Lady Bucs will host White House HS in what could be the match that determines the district championship. With two games remaining in district play (the other is with Portland on Sr. Night on 10/3) the Lady Bucs and WH are tied atop the 9AA standings. Portland has lost to WH-Heritage, but could spoil our parade with a win over the Lady Bucs.’
The Lady Bucs (8-3-1/4-0) beat the Bobcats 8-0 tonight in District 9AA play. Jana Claire Swafford scored the first goal 9 minutes in and Alex Hancock scored just two minutes later to make it 2-0. Play was dominated by the Bucs who added two more goals in the first half. Swafford got her second of the night and Jill Fuqua scored off a corner kick to make it 4-0 at the half.
Two minutes in to the second half, Swafford and Fuqua scored again. Jana Claire’s goal gave her a hat trick. The Bucs added goals by Sophomore Cassidy Cothron and Freshman Julia Smith to finish off the visitors from Robertson County 8-0.
Coach Cooke told Beech Athletics, “I thought the girls played very well tonight. We are getting a lot better at building our attack from the back. I still believe there is much more potential out of our girls and can’t wait to see what we can do moving forward.”
The Lady Bucs will travel to Gallatin tomorrow to make up a game at 4:00pm at Gallatin HS.
