The lady Spartans got a rematch against Oak Hills on Tuesday and stepped up their play against this tough opponent. They lost the first game on Turpin's home field 2-1 and were looking for a better performance in this one. Oak Hills is a good team that shows some impressive skills and explosive speed. They used their speed to get behind the Spartan defense a few times in both of these games. The big difference in this game was in how quickly the defense recovered and the play of Spartan Keeper Drew Hardin who earned another shutout.

The Lady Spartans I thought played one of their better games of the year in defeating a good McAuley team 2-1. The Spartans looked very sharp the entire game with their one and two touch passing and controlled most of the game from start to finish. This was not going to be a very high scoring game as McAuley packed it in and hoped for the occasional counter attack.
The Lady Spartans controlled the entire game from start to finish in a 12-0 victory over Glen Este to extend their winning streak to 8 games. Goals for the game were scored by Savanna Hazenfield (2), Elise Crew (3), Miranda Stricker(2), Katie Lambert(4) and Kaitlyn Workman.
The Lady Spartans won the first physical game in Springboro a few weeks ago but Springboro came back and returned the favor on Saturday. This was another physical game and the girls responded well to the physical style of play. The girls made good decisions throughout the day but balls just came off their feet poorly. It could be inexperience on turf of just "one of those days" but passes seemed too long or short all day.
