After having reached a program-best number seven ranking in the AAA state girls soccer poll, Camden split a pair of matches last week with a 5-0 loss to 12th ranked Chapin lastTuesday before edging Sumter, 10-0, two nights later.
The week left the Lady Bulldogs with a 9-4 overall record and, following the loss to Chapin, a 3-2 mark in Region 4-AAA play.
Against Chapin, the visiting Lady Bulldogs gave up two penalty kicks in the contest and could never find their rhythm in the 80-minute contest. 
“Honestly,” said Camden head coach Stephen Sutusky, “we did not play well at all. We were completely flat and must avoid that to be successful. In this competitive region, we must come every single night ready to play or things like this happen.”
Junior goalkeeper Jordan Woody made 13 saves on the night for Camden. 
Thursday evening, the Lady Bulldogs visited Sumter and were able to get back on the winning track.  Paced by junior midfielder Kayla Wallace’s goal Camden would emerge a 1-0 winner. 
Midway through the first half, with Camden on the attack, senior striker Jazzmine Devlin lofted a shot to the right of the Sumter goal only to have it turned away by the Gamecock defense. Camden sophomore Breanna Barnes would win the ball and dribbled toward the goal before sending a pass to the foot of Wallace, who took two steps and placed the ball inside the right goal post. 
Camden was playing without starters Dree Dubose, Owens Morgan and reserve Riley Shelburne and did not have a bench player after senior midfielder Katie Tiller went down in the first half with a sprained ankle.  Things got worse as the visitors played the final 10 minutes down a player after Wallace was carted off the field with an injury. 
“Our girls faced some adversity and really stepped up to the challenged throughout the night,” Sutusky said. “Playing with only 10 players down the stretch was tough, but I really am elated at how we handled it.”
CHS outshot Sumter, 16 to 4, in the game in which Camden controlled much of the night.  In fact, the Lady Bulldogs earned five corner kicks to Sumter’s two. Camden earned a penalty kick midway through the second half only to have Sarah Anne Semple’s kick knocked away by the Sumter keeper. 
“Our girls followed up a lackluster performance Tuesday with a really solid all around game Thursday and I am glad we bounced back with a win,” said Sutusky.
