Lucas separates shoulder in Eagles' loss

EAGLE POINT -- The value of Stephanie Lucas to the Eagle Point High soccer team came into full focus Saturday when the junior striker had to leave a Southern Oregon Conference match against Klamath Union.

With the score 2-1 in favor of the Pelicans and 15 minutes left in the match, Lucas was taken down on a slide tackle and suffered a separated shoulder.

One minute later, Sara Schaaf scored Klamath Union's third goal and the Pelicans went on to a 4-1 victory.

Eagle Point coach Tim Sweeney was miffed that no foul was called on the play in which Lucas was hurt.

I thought the referee might have missed that one, but it did happen awfully fast, Sweeney said. There was nothing malicious about it, there was no intent to injure Stephanie. But it's a little frustrating that no penalty was called.

Prior to getting hurt, Lucas scored her 30th goal of the season in Eagle Point's 13th match.

The loss dropped the Eagles to 0-6 in the SOC and 6-7 overall.

Other than North Medford, we've been in every conference match, Sweeney said. It was 0-0 at the half today and 2-1 when Stephanie went down. If we get the PK (penalty kick) then it's 2-2 with 15 minutes to go.

Betsy Hackett scored Klamath Union's first two goals while Schaaf and Annie Kellstrom had the other two.

Reached at her home Saturday evening, Lucas said her shoulder was not as seriously injured as first feared and said that she would be on the field Tuesday when the Eagles meet South Medford in their final match of the fall.

CRATER 2, ROSEBURG — shootout -- At Central Point Elementary, Sonny Brooks -- the sixth Crater shooter -- broke a 3-3 shootout tie as the Comets evened their SOC mark.

Crater goalie Kate Jenkins made two clutch saves in the shootout, including a stop right before Brooks' goal.

The Comets (7-3-2, 3-3 SOC) took a 1-0 lead in the 21st minute of the first half when fullback Sarah Baker headed home a corner-kick cross from Trisha Tewes.

Roseburg (3-3 SOC) tied the game 12 minutes into the second half on Morgan Downie unassisted goal.

ASHLAND 5, GRANTS PASS 0 --Jenni Rosenberg had two goals and two assists while Alexi Stokes and Jenny Spears combined for the shutout in goal as Ashland topped Grants Pass.

Rachell Grubbs, Ashley Brace and Hanna Seltzer added one goal apiece for the Grizzlies, who outshot the Cavers 26-10.

Ashland led 2-0 at the half.
