CASEY COUNTY -- Whitley County's Reis Anderson had a big night on Thursday with five goals in the Lady Colonels' 9-5 win over Casey County.

After Tuesday's 8-0 loss to the Corbin Lady Redhounds, the Lady Colonels picked up an impressive win over Casey County where four Lady Colonels scored goals.

"Every player and team can have an off day, but it's important to realize that one bad game doesn't define us as a team," said Whitley County Coach Kelly Sawyers. "And tonight's win proves that."

The Lady Colonels were dominant on the offensive side of the ball against Casey County, with 24 shot attempts and nine goals made for Whitley County.

The Lady Rebels couldn't hold off Whitley County's high powered offense, with Anderson leading the Lady Colonels on Thursday night with five goals, while Kaylee Aslinger found two goals for Whitley County and Chelsea Logan and Whitney Owens had one goal each for the Lady Colonels.

"We switched a few players up tonight to try a different offensive approach and it seemed to pay off," Sawyers said.

On the defensive side, Sawyers said she wished her team could have held off the Lady Rebels a little better but without their starting goalkeeper on Thursday night, the Lady Colonels allowed Casey County to score five goals. Madison Chansler had four goals for the Lady Rebels, while Mikayla Fair had one.

The Lady Colonels will be back in action today, as Whitley County hosts Oneida Baptist Institute. Game time is slated for 6 p.m.

"I would like to see us dominate from the start and play a controlled game," Sawyer's said of today's matchup with OBI.
