Down a goal with less than four minutes remaining, Lambert junior M.E. Craven streaked up the middle of the field from her defensive position and into the heart of the South Forsyth girls’ soccer team’s defense. Craven didn’t score, but the impact of her skill and confidence was a reminder of what the Lady Longhorns lacked the last time they faced their rival.

Craven drew a foul in the box, which Maddie Eddleman converted for the tying goal in Lambert’s eventual 2-1 victory in extra penalty kicks Thursday at home.

The win pulled No. 6-ranked Lambert (7-3-0, 5-1) into a tie with No. 1 South (9-2-0, 5-1) for first place in Region 5-7A, and avenged the Lady Longhorns’ 4-2 loss in the teams’ previous meeting.

Craven was occupied with other matters that game, as was starting midfielder Brooke Schuyler. The two were still helping Lambert’s girls basketball team make a run to the quarterfinals of the state playoffs.

The teams finished their region series a bit earlier than expected. The game was scheduled for March 24, which coincides with one of the biggest club soccer showcase tournaments in the country. Lambert and South would have expected to be without as many as six or seven players each.
