Another hat trick
for Lehman’s Fuller
PITSBURG — Lehman also went to 5-1-1 on the season Saturday with a 3-0 blanking of Franklin Monroe in non-league play.
The Lady Cavs, No. 4 in D-3 in Ohio, got all three goals from Sara Fuller, who recorded her second straight hat trick and raised her goal total for the season to a dozen.
“Franklin Monroe is no easy place to play,” said Lehman coach Jeremy Lorenzo. “The field is smaller than we’re used to and the wind was very difficult to deal with. But the girls found a way to get the job done despite the elements.
“I was very pleased with our bench,” he added. “We’re still not at full strength due to injuries. And I can’t say enough about the defense. We’ve now had four shutouts in a row and we’ve only allowed four total shots on goal in those four games.”
Kate Hemm had two assists for the Lady Cavs.
Anna edges Urbana
to up mark to 4-1
URBANA — The Anna Lady Rockets edged Urbana 2-1 Saturday in a non-league game that saw all three goals scored in the first half.
The win raises the Lady Rockets’ mark on the year to 4-1 heading to Greenville today.
“It was a good win for us,” said Anna head coach Jim Hague. “It was a rock ‘em, sock ‘em kind of game, very physical.”
Bria Cook had a goal for Anna, and Emily Albers added the other goal when she knocked a deflection off an Urbana player into the net.
Kristin Grimes had four saves.
Cavs fall 4-1
PITSBURGB — The Lehman boys soccer team traveled to third-ranked Franklin Monroe Saturday and dropped a 4-1 verdict to the Jets.
The loss leaves Lehman 1-4 overall with Bethel coming to town Tuesday.
The Jets got on the board quickly on an own-goal within the first two minutes and then put another in one on a deflection from a corner kick, going up 2-0 early in the contest.
“Own-goals are rare in high-school, and then you couple that with an odd bounce off of a corner kick, and you find yourself in a 2-0 hole on the road against a team like F-M,” said Lehman coach Tom Wiseman. “Those two things almost never happen, and it’s just unlucky.”
Lehman responded with a goal just under the crossbar by Alex Wiseman, with the assist from senior Nick Neumeier, and headed into halftime only down 2-1. But The Jets came out strong in the second half with two more unanswered goals. Franklin-Monroe outshot the Cavs 25-5.
“We struggled with possession and never got a very good look at the goal,” said Wiseman.
