Knights end SHS winning streak

Wednesday, October 22, 2008

FARMINGTON -- The Sikeston Bulldog soccer team fell in a 2-1 overtime game to the Farmington Knights Tuesday night in Farmington breaking their four-game winning streak.

"It seemed like we had a lot of chances to score," Sikeston head coach Derrick Long said. "It was pretty much a back-and-forth kind of game. Their going to be one of the highest seeds in our district and I felt like we played with them punch-for-punch."

Farmington grabbed on to an early lead in the 23 minute when Alex Rhodes punched in an unassisted goal which remained the only score in the first half.

Sikeston tied the game in the second half when Dakota Trevino scored a goal on a free kick in the 43rd minute.

Brett Mell ended the game in overtime with a goal in the 83rd minute from an assist by Pete Grimeel.

Sikeston (6-15) will be on the road again next Monday when they travel to Poplar Bluff to take on the Mules.

"We've been playing well here recently," said Long. "Our winning streak was broke but anytime you can go and play well on the road its a good thing."
