Punchless Lady Ads fall at Oak Ridge, travel to BHS

Preparing for a trip to Bearden and the annual regular season girls soccer showdown with the archrival LadySoccerDawgs, Farragut’s lack of scoring punch is a major concern.

That concern was painfully evident in a 1-0 loss at Oak Ridge Wednesday, Sept. 6, at ORHS, as the Lady Admirals (6-3 record entering the week) had only four shots on goal according to Oak Ridge statistics (10-4 Lady Wildcats edge).

“We played really hard, unfortunately we couldn’t finish,” FHS senior midfielder Kathleen Jarvis said, as her FHS girls head to Bearden’s Bruce Allender Field tonight, Thursday, Sept. 14, for a showdown starting at 7 p.m. “I think we’re trying to pass too much, I think we need to get a quicker shot off. We play as a team, I just think we’re taking it a little too far. ...”

Senior Sarah Fisher generally agreed with Jarvis.

“Toward the end of the game the whole team got real defensive and we didn’t seem to have any offense in our heads, we were just worried about them scoring another goal,” Fisher said. “We need to be more offensive-minded.

“We played hard ... I’m disappointed in the outcome, but we’ll have another shot at ’em,” Fisher added. “I think we’ll come in harder next time.”

FHS head coach Dennis Lindsay was proud of his defense. “We’ve got a good, strong defense — except one letdown, and that wasn’t from out fullbacks for the most part,” Lindsay said. “Sarah Fisher did well, so did Emily Harris, M-C Suhocki and Serena [Allen]. They played solid.”

An uncleared ball deep in FHS territory resulted in a 18-yard open shot in front of the goal from Lady Wildcat Courtney Brackins with 26:25 in the first half, as the Lady Wildcats improved its record to 7-0-0.

Despite the loss and the lack of offense, Jarvis sees bright spots. “I think we’ve been playing awesome, especially at Bearden [BHS Invitational] and Katie Hunter, we played really well,” she said.

“I’d say we’re improving as the season goes along, we’re playing as a team better.”
