Sikeston shuts out DeSoto, 2-0

Sunday, September 25, 2005

DESOTO -- The Sikeston soccer team improved to 4-6 on the season with a 2-0 road victory against DeSoto on Friday night.

Sikeston got a goal from Chris Carnell at the 24:00 mark on an assist from Blake Taylor. Taylor then scored his 13th goal of the season on an assist from Justin Deere at the 30:00 mark.

Sikeston out-shot DeSoto 27-5. Bulldog goalkeeper Scott Droddy had five saves.

"It's always nice to win on the road," said Sikeston coach Derrick Long. "It was raining pretty good up there and that was affecting our shots. But they never put much pressure on us. We've got three tough ones next week so hopefully we can build on these last two games that we've won."

Sikeston will host Farmington on Monday with junior varsity action starting at 5 p.m.

Sikeston's JV team lost 3-2 to DeSoto. Ashton Cantrell and Stephen Beydler each had goals.
