Camden completes girls soccer season sweep of L-E

The girls soccer version of the Kershaw County rivalry between Lugoff-Elgin and Camden kicked off for the second time this season at Zemp Stadium Tuesday night. Already owning a 1-0 victory over the Demons, the host Bulldogs completed the season sweep with a 6-1 triumph.

Camden entered the contest having won three of its last four matches, while L-E came in riding a three-match win streak.

From the opening kickoff Camden took control offensively, mustering two shots in the game’s first four minutes that were turned away by LE goalie Lonnie Lee Lair. Sophomore midfielder India Robinson would score the first of her three goals at the five-minute mark to give the Bulldogs a 1-0 lead. Robinson’s goals were complimented by assists from Loren Grimm and two from Kaney Steele. Tina Stokes would add a goal for the Bulldogs as would Kaney Steele and Cierra McShine. Lugoff Elgin’s lone goal came from the foot of senior April Hawkins.

Camden’s Lauren Geddings had three saves in goal and Jessica Ekman had five. Lair finished with 11 saves.

“Our girls played terrific, I thought we were definitely on a roll and controlled the ball offensively,” said Camden coach Stephen Sutusky.

Robinson’s three goals now give her seventeen on the season to go along with twelve assists to lead Camden in both categories, while classmate Tina Stokes now has thirteen goals for the Bulldogs.
