The St. Vincent girls soccer team continued its hot start to the season on Tuesday. The Indians scored early and often as they defeated Fredericktown 8-0 in just 47 minutes at the Bank of Missouri Soccer Complex.
“We are just playing really well right now,” St. Vincent coach Todd Strattman said. “Everyone is talking and communicating well and the girls just work well together.”
The victory moved St. Vincent to 4-0 this season and the team has outscored its opponents 25-1 in the four contests. Not even Strattman foresaw such a great start.
“I thought it would take a few games to work everything out,” he said. “We have a great lineup and when someone comes in off the bench it seems like there is little drop off. It’s really nice to see that this early in the season.”
The Indians were led by Cailyn Prost and Lana Adams who each scored two goals apiece and both also added an assist to the ledger. Sadie Cissell, Allie Patrick, Haley Emmendorfer, and Abigail Schilling also added tallies for St. Vincent, who outshot the Blackcats 20-1 in the process.
The theme for the Indians so far this season has been its quick, dynamic scoring early in games. That continued on Tuesday when the Indians scored a pair of goals in the first 15 minutes and the goals kept coming from there.
Prost scored in the 20th minute when she stepped in front of the Fredericktown goalkeeper for a cross and took a shot on a wide open net. Patrick scored less than one minute later to give the Indians a 4-0 lead.
