Western Hills' girls soccer team now has two wins over Frankfort High this season, but the Lady Panthers are getting closer.
The Lady Wolverines defeated FHS 3-2 Wednesday at Sower Soccer Field, just over a week after they beat Frankfort 3-1 in the Rotary Capital City Classic.
"We looked rather lethargic, especially in the first half," WHHS coach Keith Jackson said. "They came out with that shot, and when she played the shot we sat back and watched her set it up. We didn't move out until she was ready to take it."
By that time it was too late, and Danielle Thomas' shot that she chipped over the reach of WHHS keeper Tiffany Cammuse gave the Lady Panthers a 1-0 lead with 33:42 left in the first half.
"I don't know if we were overconfident or what," Jackson said, "but we didn't look like the same team at all."
Western Hills tied the game eight minutes later when Davin Caudill scored off a corner kick by Mollie Wade. That was the first of Caudill's three goals on the night.
"I figured they'd get the first goal because they'd be out to beat us since we beat them before," Caudill said. "We played decent. We had a little letdown, but that's to be expected. Everyone will. We played decent."
