Scoring twice in the first 12 minutes of play, visiting Camden swept its season series with rival Lugoff-Elgin with a 2-0 victory in a Tuesday night girls’ soccer match played in less-than-favorable conditions.
Early in the contest, stiff winds and a downpour descended upon the West Wateree. In spite of the obstacles, the Lady Bulldogs scored two goals and sophomore goalkeeper Jordan Woody did the rest as she recorded her 22nd career shutout for Stephen Sutusky’s troops.
Both teams came into the game for the first time in more than a week, due to spring break, and the rust showed said Sutusky, who termed the two sides’ play as being on “spring break cruise control.”
Camden junior Dree Dubose scored what proved to be the winning goal when she took the ball at the nine minute mark and raced down field. As the Lady Demons’ goalkeeper came out of the goal to stop Dubose, the Lady Bulldog junior tapper the ball to the right of the keeper. Classmate Jazzmine Devlin would handle the rest, placing the ball in the back of the net. 
“The first goal was created by (midfielder) Kayla Wallace,” Sutusky said. “Kayla created chaos with her dribbling which freed up both Jazz and Dree. Those two worked together wonderfully for the scoring chance.”
Less than three minutes later, Devlin found junior midfielder Katie Tiller with a pass. Tiller took two dribbles and drilled the ball into the back of the net for the 2-0 lead. 
CHS peppered the L-E goal taking 16 first half shots to the hostesses’ two while earning four corner kicks. 
“L-E played well, they deserve a ton of credit, especially defensively,” said Sutusky. 
Camden’s defense played well as did Woody between the posts.
 “Jordan is playing well in the goal for us, but Sarah Anne Semple is setting the tone defensively,” Sutusky said. “Cierra McShine is back to 100 percent and gives us solid play back there, too. And, all things considered, you have to give Ginny Smith credit at stopper for not allowing much pressure to reach the backline of defenders.” 
Camden improved to 11-1 on the season with its 11th straight win. The Lady Bulldogs, who are 9-0 in Region 6-AAA, close out conference play next week traveling to Hartsville on Tuesday and hosting Marlboro County on Thursday. 
“Right now our focus is on improving daily,” Sutusky said. “We had a nice break for a week and it showed Tuesday, but now is the time to refocus and gear up for the post season.”
