On Sept. 20, the Meade County High School Ladywave soccer team hosted the Central Hardin Lady Bruins where they would be on the losing end of a 3-0 defeat.
These two teams match up well on the field, and that proved to be the situation as most of the game was played in the middle of the field. Both defenses made it hard to get inside to the box, or even down the field to try and put together an attack, but it would be Central Hardin that put points on the board first on a hard shot to the corner that got passed Meade goalkeeper Kerstin Nevitt at the 12-minute mark in the first half.
“I’m not disappointed in the way the girls played tonight,” Head coach David Craycroft said, “this is a good team we faced tonight. It’s the little things that get us, the minor mistakes, that we need to clean up.”
Meade tried to mount attacks at the start of the second half, but it would be Central Hardin to score again at the 26-minute mark to take a 2-0 lead.
“When we were down by one at the end of the first half, I was like, ‘Ok we can come back from that?’ But when they scored again, I knew we were going to have to pick it up”, Craycroft said.
Just a little over a minute after scoring their second goal, Central Hardin’s offense scored their third goal of the game to go up 3-0 over Meade.
Meade had chances late in the second half, but just could not capitalize on Central’s defense miscues, or get their corner kicks into position where they could score and would take the loss.
