LHS soccer edged by Mill Valley
Lions’ first loss not counted in league standings
Shawnee The Lansing High soccer team had its undefeated start snapped Monday afternoon when it dropped a 2-1 decision at Mill Valley.
The Lions (5-1) fell behind when the Jaguars scored a goal in the first minute of the game after weaving right through the LHS defense for an open shot.
Lansing freshman Rachel Pride tied the game later in the first half when she buried her third goal of the season. The tie lasted through halftime and until the final 10 minutes of the game when the Jaguars scored the game-winner on a wind-aided corner kick that hooked into the back corner of the net.
Mill Valley's goals were the first scored against Lansing since the Jaguars lost to LHS, 3-2, in both teams' season-opener on March 29.
LHS coach Rob Elkins was not at the game because he was on his way to Texas for his father's funeral. Elkins is not expected to be back for the Lions' 4 p.m. Wednesday game at Basehor-Linwood. They also play at 6 p.m. Thursday at Piper.
