Lady Tigers handle Todd Co. Rebels

Caldwell County’s Kendall Boyd readies a strike during a recent game.

The Caldwell County Lady Tigers posted their second win of the season on the road at Todd County last Thursday. After a 5-game losing streak, the 2-0 shutout over the Lady Rebels couldn’t have come at a better time.

The Lady Tigers wasted no time, striking just 4 minutes into the game. Laken White sent a pass to the left side of the field where Reagan Hodge was waiting for the shot. Hodge’s hard shot to the opposite corner left the Rebel goalie in the dirt and put the Lady Tigers on the board for the first time in four games.

The Lady Tigers were back in the net again to make it a 2-0 game just under 10 minutes later. White followed up a goalie deflected-shot from Mariah Matthews which she then drilled back into the net.

Offensively, both teams struggled for the remainder of the game with both teams shot attempts near single digits. Neither team was able to make good on the attempts in the second half. A central part of Caldwell County defense, goalkeeper Rachel McClung, is credited with 7 saves for the night. Todd County goalkeeper, Samantha Case, also tallied 7 saves.
