The Bulldogs rallied off nine unanswered goals after the Indians scored first on a goal by Westerfield at 3:00. The goal was unassisted.

"We played well today," said Sikeston coach Derrick Long, "Took awhile to get going but once we did, we controlled the game."

"Andrew played good defense on Kennett's best offensive player and once he was stopped, so was Kennett's offense," said Long.

In goal, Scott Droddy made five saves to record the win.
