Soccer team plays worst game; still beats Knights

Tuesday, September 25, 2001

FARMINGTON - The Sikeston soccer team continued its impressive play on Monday, defeating Farmington 3-2 on the road.

Sikeston improves to 6-4-1 on the season but even with the win, head coach Derrick Long wasn't happy with his team's play.

"I just don't think we played very well," said Long. "It's probably the worst game we've played all year. It seems like every time we go to Farmington we don't play well. I don't know what it is."

Sikeston's Adam Garrett continues to be the entire offense for the Bulldogs. He once again recorded a hat trick in the win, scoring goals at the 14:00, 22:00 and 54:00 marks.

Farmington scored in the first minute and the 75:00 mark.

Adam Hahs and Tanner Fritz provided assists while the third goal was on a penalty kick.

Sikeston out-shot Farmington 29-13. Goalie Chris Cota recorded 11 saves for the Bulldogs.

"We dominated in shots taken but we just couldn't put it in the net," said Long. "I guess an ugly win is better than a good loss."

In junior varsity action, Sikeston improved to 4-3-1 with a 4-0 shutout over Farmington.

Tyler Powell and Ross Gelshiemer provided the Bulldogs' first two goals while Lance Rhodes scored the next two.

Joel Kinder and Rhodes each had assists while Gelshiemer had two assists.

Goalie Jake Marsh recorded his third shutout of the season.

Sikeston will host Jackson today at 4 p.m.
