PSJHS soccer teams sweep Baker

Published: Monday, January 14, 2013 at 09:47 AM.

In a fluke of scheduling, the Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School soccer teams played doubleheaders last Saturday against Baker.

Both the boys and girls won both games with the District 1-1A playoffs on the horizon.

The Lady Tiger Sharks finished district play 3-2-1 (8-3-1 overall) after winning 4-0 and 2-1 over Baker last weekend. Coach Gary Hindley expects the girls will be a second or third seed for the district tournament, which begins Tuesday, Jan. 15, with the finals Jan. 18, in Port St. Joe.

The Tiger Sharks beat Baker 6-3 and 8-0 to improve to 10-1-1 for the year, 7-0-1 in district play. The boys will be a one or two seed when the district tournament begins Jan. 22 in Freeport.

The unusual doubleheaders at Baker were necessitated due to a scheduling conflict and the need to finish district play with the girls’ tournament next week.

Lady Tiger Sharks

The first game against Baker (a third-year program new to the district), was keyed by Kathleen Rish’s two goals, increasing her team-high goals to 10. Juniors Lexie McGhee (her eighth) and defender Brittney Shoemaker (her second) each scored on penalty kicks. Junior Christian Laine started in goal and played 20 minutes with seventh-grader Celeste Childs finishing. Both faced just one shot and made on save to share the shutout.
