LHS girls defeat Prairie Seeds

The LHS girls soccer team sandwiched a big win in between two losses last week, as Mayer Lutheran started on the road but finished at home.

At Concordia Academy – Roseville on Sept. 3, the Crusaders fell 8-1. Junior Hannah Zahrte scored the lone goal for LHS late in the game off a corner kick.

“A tough road game against a good, physical team,” said LHS head coach Stefan Wismar.

Thursday brought the Crusaders home to host Prairie Seeds Academy, where Mayer Lutheran came away with a huge 10-0 win.

“A good confidence builder heading into a series of games against teams we compete well against,” Wismar said.

Junior Belle Flucas led the way with four goals for Mayer Lutheran. Freshman Addie Luehrs added two goals to the LHS effort, while sophomore Paige Schneider, seventh grader Lily Schneider, junior Sam Underdahl, and junior Brenna Larsen also scored.

Hosting Bethany Academy in a well-contested game on Sept. 7, the Crusaders would eventually fall 3-2. Flucas scored the Crusaders’ first goal, before Bethany tied it up with one of its own. With less than 10 minutes in the first half, senior Brandee Borst put the Crusaders up 2-1 on a goal.

“In the second half both teams kept fighting hard, fending off opponents and the heat,” Wismar said. “But Bethany was able to tie it up and then got the go ahead goal with only four minutes to go in regulation.”

LHS is 2-3 this season and will travel to ISM on Saturday and Big Lake Sept. 19.
