LAKELAND CHRISTIAN ACADEMY 9, JIMTOWN 1
LCA poured it on at Jimtown in a driving rainstorm.
As it rained hard in Elkhart County, LCA still managed to stay in fifth gear, using three goals from Tori Calizo, two from Jessi Calizo and single tallies from Lauren Starrett, Keely Bauer, Anna Reimink and Avery Hobbs to get the victory.
Maddie Paris stopped three of four shots in goal for the win.
“After losing a tough game at home to Fusion this past Tuesday, I was very happy with the way the team came out,” said LCA head coach Nat Raber. “I loved the way we played with the ball. We were more methodical tonight and prodded the defense and found holes to exploit. I was happy with the way the girls played through the elements. The rain was coming down pretty hard with strong gusts of wind.”
LCA (8-2-2) will travel to Maconaquah Saturday for its next match.
