McDERMOTT — The St. Joseph Female Flyers were first in a battle of first-year programs.
The Female Flyers moved to 4-0 in their first-ever girls’ soccer season as they beat the first-year program of the Northwest Lady Mohawks 6-0 Wednesday.
“Northwest is in their first season fielding a girls’ team. Although we’re also in our first season, many of our girls have a lot more previous soccer experience,” said Female Flyers’ coach Kyle Weatherholt.
“The skill level and instincts of players like Sidney Payne and Kaylee Sheridan comes form their years of competitive soccer. That experience rubs off on all the girls in training day in and day out.”
Ashlee Blankenship, Emma Saxby, Lynsey Booker, Brea Eastham, Sheridan and Payne all scored goals for St. Joseph.
Payne also had two assists while Ophelia Weatherholt, Booker and Saxby all had an assists.
Eastham’s goal was unassisted.
“Ashlee and Brea have been working hard in training since July and learning form the other girls. That paid off today as both freshmen scored their first goals,” said coach Weatherholt.
St. Joseph plays at Boyd County, Ky., on Saturday, Sept. 14.
