The St. Joseph Female Flyers decided to play keep away.

The Female Flyers game of keep away helped them win the soccer game as they beat the Chesapeake Lady Panthers 5-2 on Wednesday.

“The second half we were able to keep the ball more,” said Weatherholt.

“We found our way through their back line numerous times and we should’ve scored more than three. Chesapeake made some good adjustments defensively pushing their back line up catching us offsides several times and disrupting our rhythm.”

St. Joseph (2-0) got two goals from Hannah Miller. Sidney Payne had a goal with an assist from Ophelia Weatherholt. The other two goals were by Kaylee Sheridan and Weatherholt.

Bailey Mills and Sydnee Hall had goals for the Lady Panthers.

Miller scored her goals within 10 minutes. Chesapeake scored on a penalty kick after one of their players was fouled in the box.

Payne scored on a perfectly timed angled run on the ball played through by Weatherholt.

A handball in the box led to a penalty kick by Weatherholt. Sheridan then scored as she beat the goal keeper with a well-placed shot and it was 5-1.

Chesapeake got a breakaway goal with five minutes left.

“Overall, I was pleased with the performance and the result, but I still see a lot we need to work on moving forward,” said coach Weatherholt.

St. Joseph plays at Lincoln County, W.Va. on Saturday morning.
