The Lady Indians soccer team maintained their winning streak last week defeating both Marsh Valley and Shelley at home. They are now 5-0 with three shutouts earned by senior keeper Lacee Rallison.
Preston executed their game better against Shelley on Wednesday, Aug. 29, winning 4-0. More energy and better passing helped them score on veteran keeper Nikki Nelson and her Shelley teammates.
Though being ahead is great, Preston Coach Brandon Lyon feels a 2-0 lead at half is actually a tough place to be. “All it takes is one goal for the momentum to change.”
Kenidee Hyde and Kassie Burton both scored for the Indians.
The Indians defeated the Marsh Valley Eagles 5-1 on Tuesday, August 28, but despite the score did not play as well as they had hoped.
“Overall as a team, it was actually a pretty big struggle,” Coach Lyon said. “We struggled finding any rhythm. Our first touches were off, so as a result, we couldn’t find any rhythm possession-wise and Marsh played us tough.”
Whitney Alder put away four of Preston’s five goals, assisted on two by Anna White and one each by Hyde and Burton. Tess Hobbs put one in for Preston at the 69 minute mark, assisted by Serena Harris, giving Preston a 3-1 lead. The Indians outshot Marsh Valley 25-3.
The Indians played Century at home on Tuesday (score not available at press time) and host Rigby on Thursday. On Tuesday, Sept. 11, the game will be at Pocatello. Both games start at 4:30 p.m.
The Preston boys soccer team had a good week with overwhelming victories over both Shelley and Marsh Valley bringing their record to 4-1-1. Keeper Dalton Lloyd has earned three shutouts so far this season.
Still on a high after Tuesday’s scoring fest the Indians repeated their performance and dominated visiting Shelley on Wednesday, August 29, scoring 13 goals and shutting out the Russets.
On Tuesday, August 28, Preston dismantled visiting Marsh Valley out shooting them 21-3 and winning 10-1. Zac Roper scored three in a row, Vinny Silva and Adrian Naylor scored two goals apiece and Cameron Porter, Landon Broadhead and Colby Hendrickson all put one in for Preston.
“As you can tell we generated a lot of offense,” Coach Robert Bowles said. “We looked really good.
“For the first 25 minutes or so in the first half, I thought we played really well.”
The Indians played Century in Pocatello on Tuesday (score not available at press time) and travel to Rigby on Thursday. On Tuesday, Sept. 11, the team will be at home against Pocatello. Both games start at 4:30 p.m.
