Female Flyers topple NWPublished 2:07am Friday, October 11, 2013
The days are just running together for the St. Joseph Female Flyers.
Putting together two good performances in as many days, the Female Flyers beat the Northwest Lady Mohawks 7-1 Wednesday.
St. Joseph was coming off a 7-0 win over Portsmouth West the previous day.
“Our run of good form continued,” said St. Joseph coach Kyler Weatherholt. “It was an all-around good performance that picked up where we left off Tuesday. Our defense gave Northwest very little possession and few scoring chances.”
Emma Saxby had three goals and two assists for the Female Flyers. Lynsey Booker also scored three goals and Sidney Payne had a goal and an assist. Kaylee Sheridan and Ophelia Weatherholt had assists.
“Sidney Payne has been outstanding in leading the offense, not only as an individual scoring threat but as a playmaker as well. She attracts a lot of attention that opens up space for other players,” said Weatherholt.
“It was a big night for Lynsey Booker and Emma Saxby. Lynsey and Hannah Miller have been outstanding all season doing work on offense and defense. They split time at the sweeper position that is the last line of defense. This has cut into their offensive production. However, both have been willing to do the necessary clean up work in the back.”
The Female Flyers close out the regular season at 1 p.m. Saturday against North Adams. The senior night will honor Molly Miller.
