Autumn Copass controls the ball in the first half Tuesday of Glasgow's match against South Warren. 

GLASGOW — After getting off to a 2-0 start and winning those contests by a combined 14 goals, the Lady Scotties hoped to rebound Tuesday from their most recent performance in which it suffered a tough 2-1 loss to Todd County Central.

In that loss, Aubrey Phillips managed to notch the only goal for Glasgow. The sophomore forward had seven of the 15 goals scored by the Lady Scotties on the young season.

Preparing to take on a tough 4th region opponent in South Warren, Phillips and Glasgow would need to be at their best to avoid a second straight defeat.

Unfortunately for Glasgow, the Lady Spartans came away with a 6-1 victory on Tuesday evening in the steady rain which also featured a 30 minute lightening delay in the second half.

Phillips did get the Lady Scotties on the scoreboard for the only goal of the evening late in the first half to pull Glasgow within 3-1 heading into halftime.

Any and all momentum that the Lady Scotties gained was quickly erased just a few minutes into the second half.

South Warren scored two goals in just over a minute’s time off the clock and a two goal deficit suddenly became four.

It wasn’t long after that before South Warren added their sixth and final goal of the evening. There weren’t many scoring opportunities for either side after that score.

After the delay, the Lady Spartans played keep away and controlled a lot of the tempo for the rest of the contest. The win moved South Warren to 4-1 on the season and they are likely to be in the mix in the always tough 14th district as well as in the 4th region.

“We have some things to clean up,” Glasgow coach Scott Zettlemoyer said after the game. “They are a good team and tonight we saw what the best of the best in our region look like”.

The head coach feels like his team needs to gain a level of toughness to match what they’ve gone up against in recent defeats.

“Our last couple of games other teams have played us very physical,” he said. “We have to get better at that aspect and match their physicality”.

Glasgow (2-2) returns to action Thursday as they hit the road to take on Monroe before heading into Class A regional action the following week.
