Female Flyers split pair, Chesy girls winPublished 3:10am Thursday, September 19, 2013
CANNONSBURG, Ky. — The St. Joseph Female Flyers split a pair of soccer games against the Boyd County Lady Lions and Minford Lady Falcons.
On Saturday, the Female Flyers lost their first game of the season 6-0 to Boyd County.
“They ere by far the most difficult test we’ve faced so far,” said Female Flyers’ coach Kyle Weatherholt. “Boyd scored three goals in the first 20 minutes and our girls seemed a little shell-shocked and never really got back into the game.”
St. Joseph rebounded Wednesday with a 3-0 win over Minford.
Emma Saxby scored two goals with assists from Kaylee Sheridan and Brea Eastham. Ophelia Weatherholt had an unassisted goal.
Coach Weatherholt said the win was a lot more of a battle than the score seemed to indicate due to Minford’s experience. The Lady Falcons had 13 seniors.
“They have a very solid team. It was actually a very evenly contested game. They had a lot of the ball throughout and they had quite a few scoring chances,” said coach Weatherholt.
“Our goalkeeper Brianna Bridges made some big saves and Hannah Miller was really strong defensively for us in the second half to maintain the shutout. Ophelia Weatherholt had a strong game winning possession of the ball and distributing it well out of the back. Emma Saxby capped off a solid performance scoring her second goal late in the game on a quick turn and powerful shot into the upper corner of the goal.”
St. Joseph (5-1) visits South Point at 7 p.m. Monday.
Chesapeake 3, Northwest 0
CHESAPEAKE — Sydnee Hall did it all.
Hall scored a goal and had two assists to help the Chesapeake Lady Panthers blank the Northwest Lady Mohawks 3-0 Wednesday in a soccer game.
Bailey Miller scored the first goal with an assist from Hall. Carly MacFarland then scored a goal assisted by Hall as Chesapeake took a 2-0 halftime lead.
Hall recorded an unassisted goal in the second half to complete the scoring.
Chesapeake (2-5-1) travels to Lincoln County, W.Va., at 10:30 a.m. Saturday.
