TIPP CITY — The Tippecanoe Lady Red Devils expanded their overall record Monday night to 6-1-0 adding a victory against the Wayne Lady Warriors, who fell to 2-5-0.
The Lady Red Devils maintained possession 65 percent of the 80 minutes scoring frequently throughout both halves making the end result of the match 6-0. Throughout both halves the Lady Red Devils kept the pressure up making every move for the Lady Warriors difficult.
Senior midfielder Lauren Weimer scored two goals, one in each half for the Lady Red Devils, kept the momentum up for Tippecanoe. Hannah Kramer scored with 24 minutes remaining in the first half. Hannah Chaplin scored with an assist from Payton Willis with 17 minutes remaining in the second half. Hannah Rittenhouse headed in the ball for the team’s sixth goal and her second of the night in the last four minutes of the game.
“Weimer in the middle did a good job controlling the ball and finding people,” said Tippecanoe Coach Brandon Baker. “It was probably one of the better games we’ve had all year. Passing was great, we were finding each other. I thought it was the best game overall from offense to defense to attacking, it was a great game for us.”
After the first half, the Lady Warriors were down 3-0. They did bring the pressure up in the second half going into tackles hard and going for the ball making it more of a challenge for the Lady Red Devils. The Lady Warriors had some opportunities in the second half but couldn’t capitalize. The Lady Warriors fought until the final whistle not giving up on the battle.
“We couldn’t keep possession of the ball. We struggled to string two, three passes together,” said Wayne Coach Brad Hemphill. “When we did have the ball, we would force things that weren’t on.”
The Lady Warriors have two more games this week. They are on the road again playing Wednesday, Sept. 13 against Springboro, and then will be hosting Trotwood-Madison High School on Saturday, Sept 16.
