HENDERSON, Tenn. - The Freed-Hardeman Lady Lion soccer team had their chances Thursday evening during the Lion's Cup Invitational, but were not able to capitalize as they fell 3-0 to Campbellsville for their third loss of the season.

Despite the loss, the Lady Lions were fairly even with Campbellsville in regard to their scoring chances on the offensive end. The Lady Lions attempted 10 shots in the match and four shots on goal compared to the Tigers who attempted 11 shots and five shots on goal.

Campbellsville did a majority of their damage in the first half as all three goals were scattered throughout the first frame. Erica McWilliams got things started for the Tigers in the 13th minute, as she was able to find the back of the net off an assist by Breanna Baptiste.

Breanna Baptiste would strike again for the Tigers in the 36th minute, this time in a scoring role, as she was able to break away down the field after a missed shot by the Lady Lions to capture her team's second goal of the match.

The third goal for Campbellsville would come moments later in the 43rd minute as Taylor Beals would find the back of the net after a deflected shot by Rachel Mobley would leave the net open for Beals to chip it in to put the Tigers up 3-0 entering the half.

The Lady Lions would keep the Tigers off the board in the second half, but were unable to put together any offense of their own, despite attempting six shots in the second half.

Avis Van Kampen led the Lady Lions on the offensive end with three shots and two shots on goal. Taylor Woods and Chloe Finney followed close behind, each with two shots.

With the loss, the Lady Lions fall to 0-3 on the season.

UP NEXT: The Lady Lions will be back in action on Saturday, as they face Dalton State (Ga.) College for a 2:00 PM match-up at the Josh Riley Soccer Complex.
