Teegan Bacon established herself as one of the most prolific scorers to come through Montgomery County on Wednesday as Bacon and the North Montgomery Chargers hit the road for their regular season finale with Lebanon. North Montgomery eventually fell 6-5, but not before a valiant effort from the Chargers in the final 20 minutes as they scored 4 goals in the final 15 minutes but saw their rally narrowly fizzle out.
Bacon scored four of Charger’s five goals as she officially passed the century mark for her career. His four currently have him at 101 in what has been nothing short of a historic career. Bacon’s four goals also match her record from a year ago when she is at 33 this season.
“I certainly couldn’t have done it without the players I’ve been on the court with for the past four years and the coaches who have supported me,” Bacon said of the achievement. “I felt like everything I had worked for had been celebrated in an instant. It was so surreal.
Charger coach Julie Hodges and all Charger fans have been anxious over the past few games and now that it’s done, Hodges has taken a moment to reflect.
“For Teegan, to represent North Montgomery the way she did and now we can say we have a 100 goal scorer with the other two schools in the county. To stand alone now as one of the county’s top three scorers is simply an incredible accomplishment.
Macy Zachary (127 for Southmont) and Hannah Whicker (107 for Crawfordsville) are the two to reach the illustrious mark.
Bacon will be looking to add to that total as she and the Chargers open Class 2A section play in Danville next week when they face Danville.
