WCHS girls’ lacrosse moves past Henry Clay, remains undefeated


Lexington - The Woodford County girls’ lacrosse team had this game circled on its calendar all season. The Lady Jackets took on Henry Clay, and although the results may not be surprising at 18-3, with Woodford County picking up the win, you could tell early on this game meant something to Coach Haven Buckner and her squad.

“The beginning of the first half showed how it was a mental game and they had to overcome that. Buckner added, “This is the game we wait for every season. I expected this result, but this is our toughest game of the season mentally.” Abbey Peterson had a big game against the Lady Blue Devils, accounting for the bulk of the scoring in the contest. Peterson was excited with the results, and the bitter rivalry was still in the back of her mind while on the field. “Henry Clay has kind of been our rival since they beat us in state my sophomore year. So it’s good to see how we played against them and how far we’ve come as a team, and myself as an individual.” The Lady Jackets were clicking both offensively and defensively, jumping out to a 5-0 lead in the first six minutes of action. Henry Clay was held scoreless just short of an entire half, when the Lady Blue Devils’ Addie Lewis scored with just :49 left in the first half to make it 11-1. Peterson also thinks that despite a few hiccups, the offense is getting it done, and is looking forward to the rest of the season, saying “I feel like we’ve had our moments where we’ve been out of our level of playing, but I feel good about how we played tonight. I think we can keep this up until districts.” She added, “I think going into districts undefeated would be awesome, it would really bring a lot of confidence to our team.” Coach Buckner feels confident that the team will continue its winning streak throughout the home stretch, saying “I think Sayre will be our toughest game, but I think we’ll be fine though, we’re ready for it.” she added “We just keep getting better.”Lexington - The Woodford County girls’ lacrosse team had this game circled on its calendar all season.
