Gallatin hung tough with rival Station Camp on the soccer pitch last Thursday, Sept. 28, but the Lady Bison broke open the game with back-to-back goals midway through the second half to take a 4-0 victory.
Station Camp opened the scoring with first half goals by Katie Lombardi and Meagan Lombardi. The score was 2-0 when, with just under 25 minutes to play in the second half, Gallatin's Courtney Bryan barely missed the top right corner of the Station Camp net, which would have cut the lead in half. Ten minutes later, Mackenzie Anderson scored the backbreaker for the Bison and Katie Koumiss tallied the final score about a minute later.
With the win, Station Camp is now 7-0-2 over its last nine games and has outscored its opponents 28-4 during that stretch.
"We're playing really well," said Station Camp coach Tom Morand. "We're playing together. We have players coming off the bench playing well. We have a lot of confidence and belief right now. It was a good night."
The Lady Bison (8-2-4, 2-0-1) are currently tied with Hendersonville for first place in District 10-AAA and it is likely tiebreakers will determine the top seed in the upcoming district tournament.
"Station Camp is a really good team," Gallatin coach Greg Harper said. "He's got a lot of talent and does a really good job coaching them. We got a lot of things we have to work on. We need to work for each other and commit to each other and play like they love each other and just bust it. We had spurts of it but it's not enough right now and I told them that. More than anything we got to be more physical and more aggressive."
Gallatin dropped to 4-8-1 with the loss and 1-1 in the district.
