MHS kickers blanked, 3-0

By Steve Sell
April 16, 2014

The principal performers in Tuesday’s soccer game between McPherson High and Valley Center are going to see a lot of each other in the next four years.

The Hornets started five freshmen and the Bullpups four. Valley Center’s freshmen played prominent roles in its 3-0 victory at McPherson Stadium.

Freshmen MiKayla Vega and Ariel Wolff scored first-half goals and another ninth-grader, Sammy Boese added an assist. Boese then added the Hornets' third goal for the only scoring of the second half.

Freshman Bethany Reeves was solid in goal as the Hornets have the making of a future power.

"I feel we should be able to hang with a team like that," said MHS coach Chris Adrian, whose team dropped to 2-5 on the year. "I think we're just as good as a team like that. Today, we did not catch a break. There was a penalty shot in the first half where I thought the girl hit it with her hand and we didn't get that one. We hit the post on a corner kick and it looked like we were going to score, 10 seconds later we're picking the ball out of our own net. That was a punch to the gut right there."

The MHS JVs and Hornets played to a 0-0 tie.

The Bullpups are scheduled to play Thursday at Newton.

Swather netters a strong 3rd at SC Invite

SALINA — Hesston High’s tennis team, ranked No. 3 in Class 3A, stepped way up in class Tuesday to tie for third place in the Salina Central Mustang Classic.

The Swathers scored 37 points to tie with Andover for third place, trailing the host Mustangs (62) and Newton (48). There were nine teams in the field with Hesston the second smallest.

In singles, the Swathers’ Keegan LeFevre took fifth place while Gus Williams was 11th. In doubles, Collin Martin and Isaac Penner placed sixth, while Grant Dahlsten and Garrett Roth were ninth.

“This was a great tournament today,” Hesston coach Mark Dahlsten said. “Both fields were pretty deep. I thought we got off to a slow start, but rebounded well by the end of the day.  We have not practiced much due to our heavy schedule, the weather and other conflicts and I think that is starting to show in some sloppy play. That being said, we competed hard in a very strong tournament and came out third, which all in all I am pleased with.”

Smoky Valley’s points came from its doubles teams. The team of Will Bochte and Trapper Bellah knocked off teammates Trey Schneider and Alec Schneider in the 11th-place match
