WEST PLAINS -- The Sikeston Lady Bulldog soccer team improved to 8-3 on the season with a 5-0 victory against West Plains at the West Plains Zizzer Classic.

Sikeston got two goals from Abbi Keefer and one goal apiece from Emily Eaves, Laura Atchison and Jennifer Millington.

Jordi Ferrell had four assists while Eaves added one assist.

Amber Minner had four saves for the Lady Bulldogs.

"It's a real good win, especially after a long bus ride," Sikeston coach Derrick Long said. "We got off to kind of a slow start, but we played much better toward the end of the first half and into the second half."

Sikeston, seeded third, played No. 2 Waynesville on Saturday.

Results from that game will be posted Monday.


FARMINGTON -- The Sikeston Bulldogs baseball team fell to 11-3 on the season with an 8-0 road loss to Farmington.

The Bulldogs only managed one hit, coming on a Seth Baker single.

Farmington scored five runs in the second inning and put the game away with three runs in the bottom of the sixth.

Sikeston's Chase Ferrell was the losing pitcher, throwing 1 2/3 innings and allowing five runs.

Garrett Limbaugh pitched 4 1/3 innings of relief, allowing three runs in the sixth.

Sikeston played DeSmet in a makeup game on Saturday. Results from that game will be in Monday's edition.


The Portageville Lady Bulldogs defeated Senath-Hornersville 10-0 in five innings on Friday.

Portageville took the lead in the bottom of the first as Lauren Kellams, Katlyn Underwood and DeAnna Deere hit back-toback to back doubles followed up by a single by Kellye Penn and a sacrifice RBI by Morgan Lechenette.

The Bulldog bats settled down in the second inning but in the bottom of the third they scored three more runs from a lead-off walk by Penn and two singles by Lechenette and Erica Ivie.

As they moved into the fourth and what would be the final inning Kellams led off with a single followed by a big home run over the left-center fence by Deere and a single by Lechenette who scored off an RBI single from Ivie to cap off the three run inning. This would be all the Lady Dogs would need to sustain the victory.

Deere took the mound for the Lady Dogs and held Senath scoreless for five innings facing 19 batters and striking out 11 with only three walks. Deere completed the game with a nohit shutout to extend the Lady Bulldogs record to 12-2 for the season.

The Portageville Lady Bulldogs also defeated the New Madrid County Central Lady Eagles on Thursday, 13-0.
