“We played possession very well with the ball starting about 11 minutes in,” White House head coach Mark Lamberth said. “It lacked when we subbed a bit and that is something that we must improve on. The attitude and effort were there from the start.”
Jacob Harper opened the scoring six minutes into the game with an unassisted goal, then Justin Southall made it 2-0 a minute later on a goal assisted by Bryson Harper.
Harper scored on a header with the pass from Cason Cooper at the 15-minute mark, and then Josh Delaney broke through the box for an unassisted tally at 16:00 to net the halftime margin.
Wyatt Lempicki added a penalty kick goal at 45:00 to start the second half and that was followed by Delaney’s second unassisted goal for the final score.
The win kept White House successful in the district.
“Most importantly, we are now 3-0-1 in district play with the next district match at Greenbrier next Tuesday,” Lamberth added.
