Another Tough Week for the Lady Eagles

Noah Newlin

After three tough games this past week, the Lady Eagles fall to a record of 2-7.

The team’s first game of the week took place on Monday against Philipsburg Osceola. The girls fought hard but ended up losing 4-2.

Philipsburg came out strong and prepared to fight. The Lady Eagles could not match their intensity this early in the game, resulting in Philipsburg scoring all four of their goals within the first half. Tyrone did counterattack, however, with Junior Captain Briley Campbell receiving the ball from Junior Adrienne Maloney and placing it right into the back of the net.

In the second half, Tyrone was ready to make a comeback. They fought their way through the half, not allowing Philipsburg to gain any other points. Tyrone managed to score another goal when Senior Captain Lainey Quick perfectly placed the ball at Campbell’s feet. She struck the ball and scored the second point for the Lady Eagles.

While Tyrone had drawn the score closer, time ran out and they were unable to claim a win.

Their second game, which took place on Wednesday against Hollidaysburg, was a confidence boost for the Lady Eagles. Although they did not win, they held Hollidaysburg for a large majority of the game, proving to themselves that they can compete with teams that are higher up in the league.

As the game started, the girls prepared themselves, for they knew it was going to be a tough battle. The Lady Eagles held their own in the first half, only allowing Hollidaysburg to score one goal that came from a tough shot from the middle of the box.

After many missed chances from both teams, Tyrone was able to get on the board. Senior Captain Lainey Quick received a ball from another Senior Captain, Rebecca Lewis. Quick struck the ball and it soared right over Hollidaysburg’s keeper, tying the game and ending the half.

The intensity was high as the second half began. The Lady Eagles were determined to tie up the game and hopefully pull out a win.

The rest of the game was a close match but, towards the end, the Lady Eagles felt the fatigue. Within the last five minutes, Hollidaysburg managed to score three more goals, securing their win.

The Lady Eagles’ final game of the week was against Conemaugh Township. The girls were unsure of what was yet to come, but they were prepared to battle.

As the game started, the girls tried to fight through the rainy weather, but they couldn’t match the intensity of the other team. Connemough was able to play a ball through Tyrone’s defense and then take a shot to the right side, putting the ball in the back of the net.

Tyrone quickly tried to counteract, but after many tries, they were unsuccessful. Conemaugh possessed the ball and headed for the defense, and yet again, another through ball was played, and Conemaugh scored their second point, ending the half.

As the second half started, the girls were determined to pick up their energy. They fought through the drowsy weather and were able to receive a free kick, which was taken by Freshman Olivia Newlin. She struck the ball and it soared in the air, curving into the back of the net. This gave Tyrone their first point of the game, but it also gave Newlin her first-ever varsity goal.
The Lady Eagles tried their hardest to tie up the game, but they were ultimately unable to do so.

The Lady Eagles are prepared to take on Bishop Carroll and Greater Johnstown this week, and hopefully secure a win.
