Pacific recorded a home girls soccer Four Rivers Conference win Tuesday over St. Clair, 3-1.

“It was a good competitive game for both sides,” said Pacific Head Coach Todd Dempsey. “We were very evenly matched with St. Clair and they battled hard. Ted’s (Koenigsfeld) done a really good job with his kids. They’ll only get better.”

The Lady Bulldogs scored first, but the Lady Indians answered with three straight goals.

Tori Martin scored the goal for St. Clair.

“There were times when we didn’t quite give 100 percent, but there were other times when we gave an awesome effort,” said St. Clair Head Coach Ted Koenigsfeld. “Our players are starting to realize that we can play with teams that we haven’t been able to in the past.”

Tessa Tomnitz, Kim Myers and Amber Zurliene scored goals for Pacific. Courtney Alexander, Catherine Hayden and Myers each had one assist.

“Kim has quietly put together a nice offensive year,” Dempsey said. “If we didn’t have one of the top goal scorers in the St. Louis area in our conference (Union’s Bethany Coons), she might have been in the conversation for player of the year.

Sydney Drysdale made four saves in goal for the Lady Indians.

Sam Deason was in goal for St. Clair.


Pacific (5-16, 5-1) won another FRC contest Thursday at Sullivan, 2-0.

“We did what we needed to do to win the game,” Dempsey said. “We wanted a chance going into Monday’s game against Union to play the role of spoiler and see if we can’t upset them for a share of the conference title.”

Morgan Webb and Hayden scored goals on assists from Hunter Kelemen and Myers.

Drysdale made 11 saves in goal for the shutout.

“We were tied 0-0 at halftime. We just made a few adjustments in terms of doing a better job at keeping our attack wide and moving off of the ball. That seemed to open things up more in the second half,” Dempsey said. “It mirrored the St. Clair game a lot. We were pretty evenly matched in terms of skill level and athleticism. The way the game played out was a reflection of that.”

St. Clair-Belle

St. Clair (7-13-1, 2-5) registered a 5-2 home win Thursday over Belle on senior night.

Heather Pendegraft scored the first three goals for the Lady Bulldogs.

The fourth goal came when Pendegraft crossed a pass near the goal, which was knocked in by a Belle player.

Danni Krouper, the lone senior on the St. Clair team, scored the fifth goal.

“It was good to get the win on senior night for Danni,” Koenigsfeld said. “It was a fun game. We played well from front to back. We did a good job collecting the ball and moving it forward with passes, switches and crosses, all things a soccer coach likes to see.”

Deason was in goal for St. Clair.

“It was a good team effort,” Koenigsfeld said. “We have two regular season games left and then districts. We’re still looking for a couple of more wins.”
