HAMLIN, W.Va. — What a difference a half can make.

The St. Joseph Female Flyers overcame a sluggish first half to rout the Lincoln County Lady Panthers 8-1 in a soccer game Saturday.

“The first half our play was a little disorganized. We did manage a few moments of quality that produced goals, but we gave the ball away far too easily and often,” said St. Joseph coach Kyle Weatherholt.

Sidney Payne had three goals and an assist and Kaylee Sheridan added two goals and an assist to lead the Female Flyers. Lynsey Booker also scored two goals, Hannah Miller had a goal, Emma Saxby figured in the scoring with two assists.

Lincoln County got a goal from Lynndsey Baker with Krissia Poe the assist.

“Sidney Payne scored a hat trick, but perhaps her best play was setting up the best goal of the day,” said Weatherholt.

The Female Flyers were up 3-1 at the half. Weatherholt said the efforts of outside defenders Natalie Heaberlin and Austin Roach helped turn the game.

“Lincoln County was quick on the counter attack. Credit should be given to the overall solid performance of Roach and Heaberlin for shutting down everything that came at them after the giveaways in the first half,” said Weatherholt.

The second half was a different story as the solid play of the entire team shut down the Lady Panthers and the offense generated five goals.

The Female Flyers host South Point at 11 a.m. Saturday.
