Though there was soccer action on the field, the focus on Monday night at Peebles High School was more off-the field as the Lady Indians played host to the North Adams Lady Devils in Southern Hills Athletic Conference action.  It was “Kickin’ Cancer” Night at Peebles with both teams wearing special uniforms to honor two special people.  Peebles wore dark blue shirts to honor Mr. Mike Germann, a staff member at PHS who was recently diagnosed with cancer, while the Lady Devils wore special camo shirts in honor of NAES student Drew Reid, who is in the midst of his own tough battle with the disease.
Through an auction, concession sales, split the pot, and the sales of t-shirts, the game, and fans from both teams, raised over $1,500 for Mr. Germann to use to defray medical expenses.  When the two teams meet again on Oct. 1 in North Adams, the game will be a “Kicks For the Cure” game.
On the field, the two girls teams played a very tight and well-contested 80 minutes of soccer, with a first-half goal for the Lady Devils holding up as they improved to 6-2-2 on the season with a 1-0 victory.
“Tonight was the culmination of the hard work of the Peebles soccer teams,” said North Adams head coach Dave D’Avignon.  “ Their efforts raised money to help one of their own.”
On the field, the Lady Devils have been battling injuries right and left and they would not get through Monday’s game without adding another to their long list.
The only score of the game came at the 26:30 mark of the first half, and it came off the foot of North Adams’ leading scorer Lakyn Hupp.  Fullback Jordan Yoder cleared the ball out of her zone and ahead to Jordyn Kell in the center of the midfield area.  Kell then passed the ball forward to left wing Hupp, who while diving to the ground, managed to get off a low hard shot that got past the Peebles goalkeeper.
That turned out to be the last shot that Hupp got off in the game as six minutes later, she went down with an ankle injury that sidelined her for the remainder of the contest.
“It was nice that Lakyn left us with a goal before she left the game,” said Coach D’Avignon.  “We have a few days off now so hopefully Lakyn and the rest of our M*A*S*H* unit will be back with us by then.”
The Lady Indians turned in a strong effort for both halves, but were just not able to get much past the North Adams defense and keeper Madee Shipley, who recorded 10 saves in her sixth shutout performance of the season.
“This was a well-played game by both teams,” added Coach D’Avignon.  “It doesn’t matter who is favored in any given year, the other team always seems to rise to the occasion.  This is how a rivalry is supposed to be, intense yet friendly.  These girls have been playing soccer with and against each other since they were tiny.  It is always a fun match up and we have one more of them coming up shortly.  Anyone who comes out to see it will see another good game.”
The Lady Devils are not back in action until Sept. 27, when they travel to Waverly for a non-conference battle with the Lady Tigers.  The Lady Indians hosted Maysville St. Patrick on Thursday, Sept. 22 and will be at West Union on Sept. 28.
Following the girls game on Monday night, the Peebles and North Adams boys’ squads took the field and it was the Green Devils coming out on top by a final score of 5-1.
