“I knew tonight was going to be difficult missing players,” said Coach Clint Nurnberg after the game. “It’s a dilemma with kids being active in other things, with one of our guys in concert choir on top of one of our guys being injured and another with a yellow card accumulation.”
Parkview’s roster woes are evident with the need of playing both goal keepers in the JV and Varsity contests in the same night. The first half featured senior Andrew Gasaway guarding the net with sophomore Trevor Moore coming in for relief in the second.
Both Gasaway and Moore surrendered goals against Camdenton. Winger Kyler Moore nimbly dodged defenders in dribbling from the left side to blast in a goal from the center of the box in the 32nd minute of the first, while Juan Vasquez made the most of a precise pass from Oscar Diaz to slide one past the diving keeper Trevor Moore in the 8th minute of the second.
“That was just a kid making a play,” said Laker coach Jason Ingold. The Camdenton senior leads the Lakers in goals in the 2012 season.
“It’s just a tradeoff,” Nurnberg said of rotating his keepers. “They’re both playing at a similar level were they’ll have good nights and bad nights, so we’ll keep splitting halves with them in the mean-time.”
Camdenton’s win over Parkview moves the Lakers to 13-8. They will travel to Jefferson City on Thursday. The Vikings slide to 3-15 and have a week to shore up their roster before the October 16 contest at Lebanon.
