CLARKSVILLE (August 20, 2018) — It was all Lady Cougars today at Winn Soccer Complex at Clarksville Academy as Kenwood fell, 9-0.
Apart from two shots on goal for the Lady Knights, they did not have much to show after walking away from a big loss. Clarksville Academy started off the game very strong by being awarded a penalty kick, but ultimately, they did not connect on the opportunity. The missed chance did not discourage them though.
Sophomore Leah Hayes started the onslaught of goals scored by Academy. Her goal was one of the five goals scored in the first half by the Lady Cougars. A few minutes after Sophomore Brylie Sykes scored followed by Leah Hayes and Katie Vanmaanen, also a fellow sophomore.
To open up the second half Clarksville Academy freshman Kaden Cobb put Academy right back where they left off. Kenwood had no answer and no way to stop the Lady Cougars. Academy controlled possession almost the entire second half as well. Two goals were scored back to back by Academy to put the up 8-0 late in the match.
All momentum had been and stayed with Clarksville Academy. Because of the score, CA was moving the ball around very freely and taking a lot of chances. They had been aggressive and stayed that way. Senior defender Morgan Crowley decided she was going to get in on the action. After controlling the ball and taking two quality shots, she finally got her goal right before the whistle to bury Kenwood and securing the CA win, 9-0.
Clarksville Academy girls soccer got their first win and moved to 1-3 and will play their next game on August 21 at Montgomery Central at 6 PM. Kenwood moves to 0-3 and plays their next game on August 28 at Sycamore at 6 PM.
