Finding the back of the net continues to be a problem for the St. Clair girls soccer team after a pair of losses during the week.

The Lady Bulldogs (4-11-2) dropped games Tuesday at home against Hillsboro 1-0 and Thursday at Warrenton, 3-0.

“We’ve been working on our offense and trying to find ways to score goals. We’ve had some scoring opportunities. We’re moving the ball pretty well at times. We just have to find a way to put the ball in the net,” said St. Clair Head Coach Ted Koenigsfeld. “Hillsboro had a good goalie. The game before that, Fredericktown’s goalie made some amazing saves. We have a great goalie. Goalies are doing their job. It’s a part of the game. It’s good to see goalies in the area getting better. It still stinks that we haven’t been able to score many goals.”

Sam Deason was in goal for the Lady Bulldogs in both games.


Hillsboro (7-4), coached by Chris Schacht, broke a scoreless tie on a goal with just over three minutes remaining in the second half for the win over St. Clair.

“That kind of knocked the wind out of our sails,” said Koenigsfeld. “We tried to push in the final few minutes. We had a couple of opportunities, but it was a letdown to give up a goal that late in the game.”

Koenigsfeld was pleased with the Lady Bulldogs’ performance.

“I thought we played a really good game. We did a lot of great things,” Koenigsfeld said. “Things are starting to click mentally, which is showing on the field. The scores reflect that. There have been a lot of one-goal decisions go the wrong way. We’ve been playing a lot of tight games.”

St. Clair had a solid defensive performance.

“Our defense played well. Veronica Guerra is doing a great job taking control at the sweeper spot. She’s doing a lot of good things,” Koenigsfeld said. “Courtney Welch has matured a lot as a player this year compared to last at wing defender. Michaela Heembrock has stepped up and is playing well.”


Warrenton (6-9) led 1-0 at halftime and put the game away with a pair of second-half goals.

“The goal in the first half was an own goal when we the ball deflected off one our players. The field was a little damp and the ball was moving faster. It just took a bad bounce on us,” Koenigsfeld said. “They made a good shot to score the second goal. On the third goal, it was a lapse in our defense in not marking up tight.”

Koenigsfeld said the Lady Bulldogs played another competitive game.

“We did some good things that we can build on,” Koenigsfeld said. “We just have to score goals to win games."
