JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – The regular season came to an end for the Lady Cougar Soccer team Thursday evening as they hosted Karns. See Amber Cowell’s photo gallery HERE.

The Campbell County Lady Cougars held possession much of the beginning of the match with multiple shots on goal, although the shots didn’t have much power behind them and were all saved by the Beaver goalkeeper.  This wasn’t helped by the wet conditions on the pitch which made for difficult passing as balls stopped short of their destination in standing water. The score stayed nil all up until the twenty-seventh minute when Karns was able to get one in.  Ten minutes later Karns scored a second time.  With twenty seconds left in the half Sage Elwin was fouled in the box and was awarded a penalty kick, but again the Karns keeper wrapped it up.

Wet conditions made for a difficult time for Campbell goalkeeper Makenzie York.

The second half was dominated by Karns, with the Beavers scoring in the sixth minute and twice within the seventh. Cheyenne Davis was fouled in the box in the ninth minute but her penalty kick was unsuccessful as well.  Karns received a free kick outside of the eighteen yard box in the sixteenth minute and it sailed over the reach of Makenzie York.

Halfway through the second half, rain began and lightning caused a delay.  Due to the weather and lack of daylight left after the delay would end Campbell Head Coach Bryan Horton said the game should end.
