9/27/2011 – (ALBANY) The Lady Cavs pulled off another win at home Tuesday, shutting out Region XVII rival South Georgia College 3-0.
The win improved the Lady Cavaliers to 6-0 in Region play, and 7-2 overall.
Sophomore Shelby Bush, of Shalimar, Fla., scored first on an assist from Sashanna Campbell. Bush is the No. 16 leading scorer in the NJCAA (with 15 goals, according to NJCAA.org).
Campbell later punched one in, unassisted, and so did teammate Haisha Cantave. Campbell, a sophomore from Manchester, Jamaica, is the NJCAA’s No. 7 goal-scorer (17).
The Lady Cavs kept South Georgia College from having any shots on their goal.
Still, the game seemed to have only a leisurely pace, and Darton head coach Ken Veilands noted that his players didn’t seem to work especially hard without the ball. His team captain, Rachel Hatch – who watched the match from the sidelines due to an injury – agreed.
“We just played slowly and didn’t keep possession well,” she said.
If the relaxed play is due to not having a challenging match since falling to Brevard Community College on Sept. 11, all of that is about to change Friday when the Lady Cavs travel to Decatur and play Region XVII rival Georgia Perimeter College.
Perimeter is undefeated (6-0) and ranked No. 3 in the NJCAA. The defending Region champion has allowed no goals at all so far this season.
Kickoff is scheduled for 5 p.m. Friday
