New Albany takes a split in soccer with Caledonia
By Dennis Clayton
New Albany and Caledonia squared off in soccer at the Tupelo soccer tournament last week with the girls taking a 4-0 win and the boys falling 4-3.
In girls action, New Albany used a strong start in the first half as they sprinted out to a 3-0 first half lead.
Scorers for New Albany during the half were Katelyn Watson, Hannah Anderson and Kristen Olson. New Albany’s offense kept up steady pressure on the Caledonia defense as they stayed on the attack.
The second half saw the Lady Bulldogs keeping up the attack, with most of the action on the Caledonia defensive end. Katelyn Watson added a second goal on the night in the half. Coach Caryl Vogel was able to give some of his younger players some playing time after the Lady Bulldogs extended the lead to 4-0.
In the boys match, Caledonia scored three goals early in the match to take the lead into the half. Caledonia added a fourth goal in the second half to stretch their lead.
Caledonia seemed to have the match in hand with the 4-1 lead, but the Bulldogs fought back to cut the lead to 4-3 late in the contest. New Albany kept up the pressure, but couldn’t find the net for the tying goal before the match ended and lost 4-3.
