Trinity girls soccer wins close one

In a match Trinity Lutheran coach Thom Hayes called "the battle of Cougars versus Cougars," the Cougars of his team defeated the Cougars of Greenwood Christian Academy in girls soccer Tuesday night.

Trinity prevailed 2-1 on the road.

Kailene Cockerham registered a goal and an assist to lift Trinity. The other goal was scored by Sarah Lemming, who matched Cockerham statistically by also adding an assist.

Trinity goaltender Genesis Munoz totaled 17 saves. Trinity took 12 shots on net.

Hayes credited his protectors for holding off Greenwood’s attempts to tie the contest as the clock was ticking down.

"In the end, it was Trinity’s defense that kept the opposing Cougars at bay, led by Kayla Goecker and Munoz," Hayes said.

Seymour doubles teams provide threat

Brandon Hubbard and Eli Meyer captured the No. 1 doubles match 6-0, 6-1, and a new doubles tandem of Sam Baker and Joe Schmidt also won, as the Owls tennis team put a scare into New Albany before succumbing 3-2 on Tuesday.

"We played very competitively against New Albany," Seymour coach Sharon Wood said. "We are improving each and every day in our consistency, shot selection and first serve. We are taking full advantage of the saying ‘Every day is a chance to get better.’ Tonight, we simply could not get the third point on the board but are moving in the right direction."

The second doubles match was a war with Baker and Schmidt outlasting their foes 8-7 (4), 3-6, 10-4.

"Sam and Joe played with great enthusiasm, communication and teamwork," Wood said.
