Bishop Chatard High School
Batesville High School
The Lady Bulldogs opened up the Plainfield Invitational with a 3-1 win over Chatard.
It was an outstanding performance by senior forward, Taylor Rowlett as she recored her second consecutive hat trick and has now scored 10 goals in the early season, according to coach Kyle Laker. The first goal came in the middle of the first half. She was able to get around two defenders and put away the shot from the corner of the 18 yard box.
Batesville went up 2-0 in the second half as Rowlett was taken out inside the box to earn the penalty. Rowlett converted on the PK.
After a deep foul in the Lady Bulldog territory, the Lady Trojans made it a 1-goal difference again after a perfectly placed direct kick from distance sailed over Olive Cernigliaâs outreached hands into the back of the net.
Rowlett gave the Lady Dogs a little breathing room late in the match with a breakaway goal off an assist from Carlie Werner. The Batesville defense played a great match and limited the Chatard offense for the majority of the match.
âThis was a great team win and a fun win for us. We look forward to these challenging matchups and it was nice to walk away with the 3-1 win,â commented Laker.
