Lambert football prepares to battle Cherokee High School

The Lambert sports teams had a slow, but effective week. Each of the teams had important games that were vital when it came to keeping momentum during their respective seasons.


Softball: The Lady Longhorns had a great week as they won every game. They played three games, starting with a home game against Milton. Lambert was able to win the game 2-0. They came out swinging with their only two runs of the game in the bottom of the first inning. The rest of their game was led by fantastic pitching as they shutout the Eagles. The next game was on the road at North Forsyth. The Longhorns fell behind early, as North was winning 2-0 after the third inning. Luckily, Lambert responded with two runs. However, the very next inning North drove in two runs as well. The score was 4-2 when the tables turned. Lambert scored 4 runs in the sixth to take the lead, which would eventually get them the win with a final score of 6-4. The final game of the week was against their rival, South Forsyth. The Longhorns skunked them with a score of 7-0. The Longhorns came out of the gate strong, scoring a quick 6-0 lead after three innings. The pitching did a terrific job once again by allowing no runs. The Longhorns hope to build off this success. 


Volleyball: Lambert volleyball had a strong week, full of some quality wins.  Lambert started off the week against Milton in what would be a blowout. Lambert won all three sets by a good margin of victory. The next day the Longhorns played in a tournament against Archbishop Alter, a team from Ohio. The Longhorns played a close game as they won the first set, but they dropped the next two sets and lost 2-1. Lambert would play later in the day against Paul Laurence Dunbar. The Longhorns lost this match as well. They dropped both sets and lost 2-0. The next day was very busy and packed full of action. The ladies started off the day strong with a win against Hardin Valley Academy. The Longhorns were able to take two out of the three sets and won 2-1. The next game was against Butler, a high school in Tennessee. The Longhorns were able to get the win again in this match with a final score of 2-0. The last game of the day was against Eastern, a Kentucky team. The Longhorns dropped the first set, but they would win the last two sets to win the match 2-1. It was a solid week as they played in a tournament and one region match. 


Football: The Lambert football team traveled to Cherokee to take on the Warriors,  hoping to get their first win of the season. The Longhorns did just that in a shutout win 28-0. The Longhorns dominated the Warriors from start to finish. They had several players with strong performances. Lambert quarter back, Bobby Gabriel, had a nice game going 9-15 with 128 yards and 2 total touchdowns. Lambert running back, Marcus Chatelain, had a crazy night with 22 carries for 179 yards and a touchdown. His longest run of the night was 79 yards. The Lambert defense was the headline in this win as they held Cherokee to 21 yards in the first half. The special teams did great as well. Galil Guillaume came out with a blocked punt that would be returned for a touchdown.


The teams all hope to improve after an already great week. Progress will remain a theme throughout the year for every team.
