Sept. 4, 2012 — Some games you know you are just going to win, but the question is by how much.
Last Thursday’s road trip to Greenup County turned out to be a dominant fourth win of the season for the Lady Vikings, defeating the Lady Musketeers by a score of 8-1.
To put it nicely, this game was all Rowan County all the time, with four different Vikings scoring in the game, including three goals by sophomore striker Ally Hackney.
Rowan County Head Coach Randy Wallace spoke with The Morehead News about his team’s big road win.
“What I am really pleased with is that we were able finally to convert on a lot of those opportunities we saw come our way on offense,” Wallace said. “We’ve had plenty of good looks all season, but it seemed like we just couldn’t get one to go through. This game was a good sign for our offense.”
The good sign for Wallace’s offense included more than just Hackney’s trifecta of goals. Rowan’s girls kept the good times rolling as Hannah Neeper added two goals, while Hannah Bandura, Deanna May and Montanna Minor each added one apiece.
A strong team effort was also seen on this night Rowan County, with Haley DeVaney leading the way with two assists, in addition to Hackney, Neeper, Minor, Nicole Plank and Allison Towell also delivering the goods to teammates.
Wallace said his team’s unselfishness makes a big difference on the field.
“Our biggest asset I think is our unselfishness on the field,” Wallace said. “These girls want to win and they know the best way to do that is by playing a strong team game. There is quite a bit of talent on this team, and if they continue to work well together, I think we can make a potential run in the postseason.”
The Lady Vikings now travel to Bath County this evening for a matchup with the Lady Cats.
We will more on this game in Friday’s edition of The Morehead News.
