Somerset edged out by Taylor Co., 2-1

Somerset — Following a 10-0 loss to East Jessamine on Saturday afternoon, the Somerset Lady Jumpers looked to get back on track on Monday night against Taylor County.

Unfortunately for the Lady Jumpers, things would not go their way, as the visiting Lady Cardinals of Taylor County came away with a 2-1 victory over Somerset in their Labor Day match-up at Clara Morrow Field.

Erin Mullins, who is in her first year as the Lady Jumper soccer coach, stated that her team has to put together two halves of soccer to be a successful team. So far in the 2013 season, Somerset has struggled at doing just that.

“We’ve got to learn how to put two solid halves of soccer together,” Mullins began. “We have more than enough talent and we have more than enough capability. We just did not put together two solid halves of soccer tonight. Once we do that, teams better watch out.”

Having the will to win is another thing that Mullins feels her team must do to improve before season’s end.

“That would make us play better and make our program better,” continued the first-year SHS coach. “It’s coming down to effort and want - the want to win, the want to score, the want for the ball, and want better for the program. Performance-wise, that would solve everything.”

Just before the intermission, Taylor County took a 1-0 lead over Somerset with the services of Meredith Johnson. The Lady Cardinal junior got past the Lady Jumper defense for first goal of the night with 10:31 remaining in the opening half.

Less than four minutes into the second half of action, Somerset knotted the match-up at 1-1 after junior Allison Luttrell had a shot bounce off the right post and into the net for the Lady Jumpers’ first -- and only -- goal of the evening.
