St. Vincent trio dooms SHS

Thursday, May 9, 2002

SIKESTON - The Sikeston girls soccer team was shutout by St. Vincent of Perryville on Wednesday 9-0 at Sikeston High School.

Sikeston was outshot 26-10 by the Lady Indians, who got all of their goals from three players.

Caytlin Hoeh had four goals, Amanda Carron had three goals and Whitney Guth had two goals.

Sikeston goalie Thea Williamson registered 15 saves.

"I think we played alright in some spots," said Sikeston head coach Derrick Long. "We played them a lot tougher last week in Perryville when we lost 5-0. We just didn't get many chances to score and that's been our biggest problem all year. We're just going to need somebody to step up and be a scorer in districts."

Long did point out a strong defensive performance by Fleming Silverthorn, who stifled St. Vincent's top player.

"I think Fleming Silverthorn had a great game," said Long. "We put her on one of their all-staters and Fleming shut her down. She didn't get any goals and she only had two shots the whole game."

The Lady Bulldogs wrapped up their inaugural regular season at 0-11, but with the district tournament starting on Saturday, Sikeston's first girls soccer season isn't over just yet.

"I'm really psyched about the district tournament," said senior Heather Hester. "If we play well, I think we have a good chance of winning."

The 10th-seeded Lady Bulldogs will play No. 11 Valley Park at 9 a.m. in St. Louis in the district tournament.

Sikeston's junior varsity wrapped up its season with an 0-14 record, falling to St. Vincent 2-0.

Sikeston was outshot 15-10 by the Lady Indians. Sikeston goalie Whitney Wallace had 13 saves.
