After back to back shutouts, the St. James girls soccer team (5-8) were looking to get back in the win column when they hosted Laquey on Tuesday, April 18. The goals were pouring in all game long for the Lady Tigers on their way to a 7-0 victory.
St. James was fresh off of consecutive Four Rivers Conference games at Sullivan and Pacific. They lost those games 7-0 and 5-0. They were able to flip the script against Laquey and they got started early.
The Lady Tigers scored four goals in the first with Quinn Paulus and Mikaela Donnelly each scoring twice. Paulus and Donnelly also helped each other out with assists.
The first half shutout came from regular starting keeper Tylar Reeves, who has had work her way through a number of injuries in the past few weeks. With the four goal lead, head coach Abbi Moreland elected to swap out Reeves for Ivy Fowler, who kept when Reeves was injured.
The second half saw even more offense for the Lady Tigers. Paulus scored two more goals and Sam Seiber was able to get into the fold with a goal of her own off an assist from Paulus. Kenzie Ketcherside also had a pair of assists in the win.
All in all it was another phenomenal game for Paulus, as she scored four goals and dished out two assists.
After the brief break from the Four Rivers Conference, the Lady Tigers will return to conference action when they host Owensville on Thursday, April 20.
