The Lady Hot Dogs rebounded on Thursday night after a Tuesday night loss to West Lafayette by a score of 6-0. The Lady Dogs traveled to North Montgomery to attempt to build off the late play in the West Lafayette game and a spirited practice on Wednesday. The early going it didn’t look like the Lady Dogs would capitalize on that momentum when the Lady Chargers managed to pick up a score about 15 minutes into the game. However, the Lady Dogs found a way to minimize the damage and keep the score 1-0 in favor of the Chargers at half time.
The Lady Hot Dogs regrouped at half time and came out with a different attitude. They managed to even the score back up fairly quickly when they were awarded a penalty kick when Flor Lopez was fouled by the Charger goalie. Flor then stepped up and proceeded to put the penalty kick into the back of the net. That score seemed to give the Lady Dogs a new presence as they continued to press the attack.
The extra energy resulted in the Lady Hot Dogs pulling away in the second half with goals being scored by Rylee Seibert, Maria Alanis, Carolyne Morales and Flor Lopez scoring again. The girl’s played together with Liz Sandoval and Rylee Seibert each picking up an assist.
Although it wasn’t a complete game the Lady Hot Dogs managed to prevail with a final score of 5-1. The win took their overall record to 7-4 and a 2-1 Sagamore Conference record. The win also had some historical significance as it meant the 2017 Lady Hot Dogs will at least be tied for the 3rd highest win total in a season by any Lady Hot Dogs’ Soccer Team.
Next, up the Lady Dogs take on Oak Hill this Saturday in their final nonconference game of the year.
