Take away a 10-minute stretch in the first half, and the Smith-Cotton Lady Tigers played even with Glendale on Friday in the 18th annual Kickapoo Lady Chiefs Shootout in Springfield.
Kickapoo scored all of its goals during that 10-minute minute stretch and led 3-0 at halftime of the Gold Division matchup
“It was definitely discouraging,” S-C coach Shawn Cairier said, “but we continued to play and not give up any more goals. We’d like a better effort in the future. Work harder than (we did today).”
The Lady Tigers (5-3) are scheduled to meet Nixa at 8 a.m. today in a consolation semifinal. Rockwood Summit beat Nixa 1-0 Friday.
