SOCCER Farmington 8, Sikeston 1

FARMINGTON -- The Sikeston Lady Bulldogs had a frustrating day Tuesday as they fell to Farmington 8-1 on the road.

Sikeston's Madison Chaney scored the games first goal in the 15th minute with the assist from Natalie Stevens.

Farmington went up 2-1 before the half and piled on six more goals with the wind at their backs in the second.

"They had a gusty wind at their backs in the second half and we had a lot of letdowns that half," Sikeston head coach Doyle Noe said. "It was just a frustrating day, but we'll move past it and get ready for our next one."

Sikeston will host Jackson Thursday at the Sikeston Sports Complex.
