Waynesville finished a 1-0 contest at Nixa with a win on Monday.
NIXA, Mo. – A heavy pressure by the Nixa offense just couldn't crack Waynesville goalkeeper Leslie Larson (Sr.) in the Lady Tigers' Monday night road bout.
Waynesville's opponent forced the issue against Larson by possessing the ball for nearly the entire match, and firing 10 shots on goal Monday night – none of which crossed the plane because of the senior's effort.
Larson, with the help of Waynesville's back line, earned her fifth shutout of the season, keeping her Lady Tigers in the game throughout.
Lady Tigers' coach Mike Gow said his defense "held its collective composure to keep the Eagles shooting outside the 18."
Offensively, Waynesville struggled to maintain possession once again, but in her second-straight contest, forward Kaley Caracci (Jr.) made the team's single shot count.
Nearly 18 minutes into the first half, Caracci gave her team the lead with an unassisted goal from just inside the right of the keeper's box.
Caracci's score was all it took to propel the Lady Tigers to an overall record of 4-1, the only loss to Columbia-Hickman, a 1-0 loss by penalty kick.
Waynesville is scheduled to battle Fatima on the road Thursday at 5 p.m.
