Friday night at the Horn it was a defensive battle won by Lambert as they rode an early goal to win the match 1-0 and advance the GHSA semifinals. In the 7th minute Katelyn Castelli scored a goal that was assisted by Ellie Prybylski to put the Longhorns up early.
From there defense was the name of the game for both sides as the teams battled physically for possession and field position. Walton did a good job of packing the box and the midfield, limiting the Longhorns' chances on offense.
But the Lambert defense was equally good, holding Walton to just five shots over the final 73 minutes to secure the hard-fought 1-0 win. It was the Longhorns' 15th shutout of the season - a new school record, and their 12th consecutive victory - also a new school record.
Next up is a date in the semifinals against Mill Creek. The two teams played each other in a preseason scrimmage which the Longhorns won 3-2, but both teams are very different than they were back in February, so it should be another great game. The match will be at home on Tuesday, May 9th at 7:00 p.m.
