Eastern, Taylor advance in boys tennis sectional

(Continued)

Duggins also praised midfielder Taylor Sparling for solid work on offense and defense.

Kokomo’s Katelyn Van Horn scored twice after halftime. In the 48th minute she moved in on the left side, kept control of the ball, and scored from close range despite not being able to shed her defender. Then in the 59th minute she banged home a loose ball on a corner kick.

Western (8-4) got on the scoreboard in the 76th minute. A well-taken corner kick by Sarah Connolly found Jenna Seaman for a nice one-time finish in the box.

“They have some really good ballhandlers and I think our defensive skills hurt us the most,” Western coach Nicole Jackson said. “I think we weren’t as prepared for Cheyenne and the team as we thought. I was very proud of [the Panthers]. I think this is probably the smallest loss we’ve had against them. I know the last couple years we’ve not scored against them.”

“I thought my seniors played well. This is their last game on this field.”

Western goalie Cybil Johnson had nine saves. Kokomo’s Catherine Skaggs had three.

EASTERN 6, TAYLOR 0

Savannah Rees scored a hat trick and Mikaela Malott scored once and dished out three assists as the Comets finished the regular season 12-2 overall and 5-1 in the Mid-Indiana Conference. Also for Eastern, Ciara Harden and Rachel Manfred each scored once, and Elena White and Manfred each had assists. Brooke Stout had one save.

“It was senior night so obviously all seniors played and we tried to work on our possession getting ready for sectionals, and move the ball around,” Eastern coach Chris Rees said. “Rachel Manfred stepped up and had a pretty good game. One of the seniors, who doesn’t always play a lot, has been getting more playing time, Chloe Unrein. She’s worked hard and she’s getting a lot of playing time at mid wing. She’s getting more and more confident, more and more comfortable and as a senior it was nice to see her step up.
