Hartmann Nets Two, Sinks Lady Rangers 2-1

October 17, 2012

ORLEANS–Much like the electricity in Barton and Orleans, the power went out for the Lake Region girls as they fell to BFA Fairfax 2-1.
"When you are playing against a team like Fairfax you have to have effort. You have to want the ball as badly as they do," said Lake Region coach Brad Urie. "If your intensity level does not match BFA’s, you are going to get beat every single time."
BFA has been the bench mark upon which the Lady Rangers have measured themselves against, but they lost both outings by identical 2-1 scores.
