Soccer team beat by mighty Jackson

Wednesday, April 23, 2003

JACKSON - The Sikeston girls soccer team lost 10-0 to a powerful Jackson Indians squad on Monday in Jackson.

Jackson out-shot the Lady Bulldogs 30-4 in the match. They led 7-0 at the half.

The Hartmann sisters did the most damage for Jackson. Sophomore Molly Hartmann scored four goals while her freshman sister Lucy Hartmann scored three goals. Sikeston falls to 1-6 on the season.

"We were very overmatched tonight," said Sikeston head coach Derrick Long. "We knew going in that it was going to be the hardest team we played all year. They definitely have the most talent. They're 12-2 and they have a pretty stacked lineup. They have no weaknesses anywhere."

Although there weren't many positives for the Sikeston team, Long said limiting Jackson to three goals in the second half was a sign that the team didn't quit.

"I thought we played a better second half," said Long. "Our defense was lacking in the first half but we tightened up and played a lot stronger in the second half."

Sikeston's junior varsity fell to 0-3 on the season with a 10-0 loss to Jackson. Sikeston will play at Cape Central today.

The Bulldogs competed in the Carbondale Tournament over the weekend where they went 0-3.

Sikeston lost to Carbondale 6-0, Crete Monet 4-1, and Highland 2-0. Sikeston's only goal was by Elizabeth Killion on an assist from Keshia Presley.
