CHESAPEAKE — The Dandy Dozen had to play as the Exclusive Eleven.
The St. Joseph Lady Flyers were missing a player and only had the required number of players allowed to play at one time during a soccer game, namely 11.
Those 11 managed to withstand the lack of rest as they beat the Chesapeake Lady Panthers 6-2 in a non-league game on Monday.
“It was truly a whole team effort with only 11 players available tonight,” said Lady Flyers’ coach Dan Blair. “These girls give me their all every game, each and every one of them.”
St. Joseph (2-3-1) took a 2-0 lead in the first half as Emma Whaley scored two or her hat trick three goals for the game. One game came off an assist from cousin Bella Whaley.
Emma Whaley completed the hat trip four minutes into the second half to make it 3-0.
The Lady Flyers then began scoring from other directions as Aubrey Sutton, Chloe Sheridan and Laiken Unger all had goals.
Gracie Damron was the goalkeeper for the Lady Flyers and had five saves.
St. Joseph controlled the offense with 17 shots on goal compared to seven for Chesapeake. The Lady Panthers’ goalie also had five saves.
