Lady Tigers shut out by Hoptown

Caldwell County’s Tallie Branch shows off her skills against Hoptown. The Lady Tigers fell 2-0 in last Thursday’s matchup.

While the game lasted 80 minutes, the 2-0 decision was made just 25 minutes after the game’s start with the Hoptown Tigers claiming their 4th win of the season last Thursday.

Hoptown broke through Caldwell County’s defense just five minutes into the game to score first. Ana Hernandez’s pass to Allison Wood came at the right time. Wood sent the hard kicked ball to the left of goalie Rachel McClung’s reach for the 1-0 advantage.

Twenty minutes later, Abby Moss found Jada Asberry out in front of the net to make it 2-0.

Neither team made much progress the rest of the first half.

Several shot attempts were made the second half but only a few actually needed saving. Most of the second half was in midfield with both teams struggling to connect passes. Caldwell County’s McClung had six saves for the night while Hopkinsville’s Vy Nguyen posted four.

Hopkinsville outshot Caldwell 14-11.

The Lady Tigers are now 3-6 while Hopkinsville improves to 4-4.
