It was a day to remember, one of many in her career, for North Adams senior Lakyn Hupp when the Lady Devils entertained the Southeastern Lady Panthers on Thursday, Sept. 21. Already in possession of the school’s career scoring record, Hupp added another notch to her belt when she tied a school record by scoring five goals, all of her team’s goals, in a 5-1 win over the Lady Panthers. Hupp now shares the record with Taylor Gast, who scored five in a game in her illustrious career as a Lady Devil. The five scores also gave Hupp 23 goals for the season, tops in the Southeast District to this point.
“With so many girls playing so well tonight, I almost feel bad singling out Lakyn on her record game,” said North Adams head coach Dave D’Avignon. “She had a career game and had the ‘eye of the tiger’, especially when they started double and triple teaming her.”
The game was a rematch of last year’s Division III District Semi-Final game, which North Adams won 4-1 and the game was actually shortened by eight minutes to beat the darkness, but that didn’t stop Hupp who began the scoring at the 21:18 mark of the first half. After North Adams keeper Madee Shipley boomed a long punt to the center line, Hupp gathered it in, drove the center channel, then swung left and back to the right, finally knocking a shot over the head of the Southeastern goalie for a 1-0 North Adams lead.
Seven minutes later it was a tie game as Southeastern got one past Shipley on a deflection, but that was the only one they got by the senior keeper. The Lady Devils took a 2-1 lead into the halftime break when Hupp took an assist from classmate Morgan Waits and scored her second of the night.
Early in the second half, Hupp got the hat trick when Waits intercepted a Southeastern pass and sent a long pass towards Hupp who again shifted directions and scored while being blankets by three Lady Panthers.
At the 25:30 mark of the second half, the North Adams lead ballooned to three goals and Hupp got number four, scoring on a rebound from a Karissa Buttelwerth shot.
The final goal of the night for Hupp and the Lady Devils came with 22:28 to play when Shipley again punted the ball to midfield and Hupp beat everyone to the bounce and knocked it home for the capper on a 5-1 North Adams win.
“Our girls were zeroed in tonight,” said Coach D’Avignon. “I was standing on the sideline thinking ‘this girl is playing really well’ and then ‘so is that one’ and so on. It was a good feeling watching everything come together.”
The Lady Devils are now riding a five-game winning streak and stand at 8-2 on the season and were back in action on Tuesday, Sept. 26 with another non-conference battle, this one at Waverly.
