Victory over G-Men shows team depth

Last night the Lady Lions showed their skill with a 6-1 win over the Lady G-Men of Georgetown. Holding only a one goal lead at halftime, the Lions stepped up their game the second half to put five more in the back of the net in only forty minutes. Georgetown scored off a thirty yard free kick with 1:30 in the game, but the Lions were determined to have the last word. Pushing up the field with speed, they were able to score one more goal with 50 seconds remaining.
The Lions showed their character during the game by continuing to play with outstanding sportsmanlike conduct as the game began to turn ugly, resulting in three yellow cards for Georgetown and one for New Richmond.
Congratulations girls and good luck Saturday versus Williamsburg.

Defensively, Derek Gelter and Matt Blome recorded interceptions for New Richmond and Deon DeRose and Eric Scholz both had fumble recoveries.
Ass.'t Coach Rick Mahan praised both the offensive and defensive lines for their dominate performances. Said Coach Mahan, "It all starts in the trenches."

In the eighth grade matchup, the Lions trailed by six late in the game when Cody Catron stole the ball from the Bronco runningback and took it 58 yards for the game tying touchdown. Blake Thompson added the deciding two point conversion on a dive play with under two minutes to go.
On the ensuing possession, Head Coach Deron Shinkle's defense stopped the Broncos on a big fourth down attempt. Starting quarterback Levi Simpson then ran two sneaks and then took a knee twice to run out the clock as the Lions moved to 1-1 on their young season.

The Lions first touchdown was scored by Blake Thompson when he pulled down a halfback pass attempt and ran 61 yards to the endzone with 42 seconds remaining in the first half.
