Saints blank rivals in heated contest

– Almost immediately after breaking a scoreless tie that lasted almost 60 minutes, Bishop Dwenger junior Kellee O’Shaughnessy had to have a trainer stretch out a leg cramp.

The heat was certainly on from there as the host Saints followed it up with another goal two minutes later in a 2-0 win over Bishop Luers on Wednesday at Hefner Fields.

“It’s been hot, but (coach Jeff Killion) has been real good with us and taking it easy so we can maintain our energy for this game because we knew it would be a big one,” O’Shaughnessy said. “We knew we would get through (being scoreless) if we just worked with what we know how to do and played our own game.

“Once we got that first goal, we all settled down and knew we had it. It calmed our nerves.”

Two minutes later, the Saints’ Natalie Lebamoff got the second goal on a penalty kick.

“It’s weird, sometimes it goes like that,” Killion said of the feast-or-famine offense. “(Luers) is very good in the middle, but we played well in the midfield, and our defense played really well. I knew we would eventually get through. We could have had three or four more (goals).”

The two teams battled through the 40-minute first half and 17 minutes into the second half scoreless as both teams came up empty until O’Shaughnessy’s close-range shot.

Class 2A No. 7 Dwenger (2-0, 1-0) won the SAC opener against Class A No. 4 Luers (3-2, 0-1) and duplicated the score of the scrimmage between the same teams just two weeks ago.

It was also a battle of programs that advanced to a semistate a year ago.

“We did everything we could do,” Luers coach Val Joveski said.

“They are just a deep team with good players. I can’t take anything away from our players.”
