Lady Ads battle state’s No. 2 ORHS to 1-1 tie

There was plenty of good and bad to say about Farragut’s 1-1 soccer tie with the state’s No. 2-ranked Oak Ridge Lady Wildcats.

“It was very physical and I think we worked really hard and we’ve been working on physicalness in practice and it really showed in this game,” senior midfielder Katy Maurer said of the Thursday, Sept. 22 showdown at Bill Clabo Field.

Jessica Stephens’ 25-yard laser shot from in front put the No. 10 Lady Ads (6-4-4 record entering the week) up 1-0 with 28:07 left in the first half. “Jessie’s shot was a rip, that was quite a shot,” FHS head coach Dennis Lindsay said.

Oak Ridge (10-1-1), tied it with about one minute left in the first half after a failed clearing attempt. “That’s just a bad defensive play right there, we let our guard down one time and they got a goal,” Lindsay said.

Speaking of the frustration of no wins versus Bearden and Oak Ridge in its last two games, “All these girls are coming to work and it’s not happening,” Stephens said. “You’re luck can’t be bad the whole season.”

In addition to Stephens, “I thought [Sarah] Fisher did a real good job,” Lindsay said. “Katy Maurer had a heck of a game. All my defense played well again, for the most part.

“I did a lot of experimenting because it’s a regular season game, we did some things that we wouldn’t normally do ... formations, combination of players, stuff like that,” Lindsay added. Of course, we weren’t expected to be in the game with ’em ... We felt we had a good shot at ’em. We’re just trying to get tournament ready ... we showed we can play with anybody.”
