Opening night for the Middle School season at Lake Country Soccer this evening and Coaches Todd McCutcheon and Dan Wichmer (Cherokee and Catholic respectively) were doing their part to help raise funds for the Stephanie Phillips Cancer Fund. Pretty sweet stuff, you have to admit.
Catholic Fightin’ Irish – 2
Cherokee Indians – 1
The Irish took the lead late in the first half this evening when
Hannah Kelly Devlin was sent in on goal on the left side. Finding some space down the wing, she was able to get off her shot as she entered the box after turning her defender, with the shot going in off the fingertips of the goal keeper. The Irish got a second goal midway through the second half when Nicole Ortega picked up a ball outside the box and got past a defender before burying her shot. The Indians fought back and when the Irish sweeper slipped on the wet surface Maddie Hotckins pounced on the ball and broke into the box, slipping her shot to the left upright.
Pershing Generals – 2
Ozark Tigers – 0
Hickory Hills Panthers –
Nixa Eagles –
