The St. Joseph Female Flyers were able to beat the weather and Lynsey Booker was able to beat the defense.

Amid thunder delays and rain, the Female Flyers used four first-half goals by Booker to beat the South Point Lady Pointers 6-2 on Wednesday.

“We were lucky to get this one in tonight with the weather,” said St. Joseph coach Kyle Weatherholt. “I was pleased with our performance and that we bounced back well from a tough game on Saturday.”

Booker got an unassisted goal two minutes into the game but South Point tied it at the 10-minute mark.

But then Booker scored a minute later and got two more goals with assists from Ophelia Weatherholt.

“Lynsey Booker had a huge game. She was able to get behind their defenders on four occasions and beat the keeper one-on-one,” said Weatherholt. “The first two goals were just great individual skill to get through the defense.”

Sydney Wain put St. Joseph up 5-1 to begin the second half as Sydney Wain scored with an assist by Emma Saxby.

After a South Point goal, Ophelia Weatherholt scored with a second assist by Saxby.

St. Joseph hosts Cross Lanes Christian at 4 p.m. on Friday.

South Point 1 2 = 3

St. Joseph 4 2 = 6
