It was the last home game of the regular season for the Lady Cougars from Camden County College and they kept their season undefeated. The Lady Cougars won 2-1 vs. Morristown County College to run their record to 12-0-1 for the season and secured a place in the national playoffs.
Before the game, the Coaching staff from Camden County College handed out a rose to all of their Freshman players and the Sophomore players each got a bouquet. This was to show their appreciation for the hard work that the ladies have given to the program.
The first half ended with the score 0-0. The Cougars kept the ball down in the Morristown end of the pitch most of the half, but just could not finish with a goal.
The second half was the same, but this time #7 scored on a shot from the left of the 18 yard box to give the Cougars a 1-0 lead. Morristown came back and tied the game on a kick and run play up the middle of the field as the Cougars middle defense got caught playing way up. The Cougars again put the pressure on and scored on a direct kick from 25 yards out. The shot was taken by #20. The kick came from the left side. This was the second kick because she took one too quickly and the referee made her take it again. The ball ended up in the upper left corner of the net. It was just like Mia Hamm’s goal against Nigeria in the second game of the Women’s World Cup in Philadelphia. The Cougars hit the crossbar 3 times in the half as the game ended 2-1.
