Western tennis bounces back, tops Peru

Taylor tennis benefits from Bengal Tigers' loss.



Mason May scored Western’s (7-2-1) winning goal with 15 minutes left to go in the first half. May was assisted by Jordan Roe.

Panthers’ goalie Edgar Sanchez added five saves.

“Sanchez had a good game,” Western coach Mike Roe said. “He stopped a penalty kick, and he also had two tremendous saves against their keeper. It was an all around good game.”



Goals from Sam Ward, Savannah Rees and Mikaela Malott (penalty kick) helped the Comets break a scoreless tie at halftime, improving to 9-1 on the season.

Malott and Elena White added assists in the win, while Brooke Stout had nine saves in goal.

“We started out slow and kind of played at Rossville’s level,” Eastern coach Chris Rees said. “In the second half, I challenged the team to step up and take the leadership roles that I know they’re capable of. We scored two goals in the first two and a half minutes of the second half, with the first goal coming from Savannah 16 seconds into the half. We started possessing the ball better in the second. Ciara Harden and Brittany Miller deserve mention for outstanding defensive games. Mikaela Malott had a great game offensively, as well.”


The Warriors scored a pair of second half goals after the teams played to a 1-1 tie at intermission. Taylor scored late in the contest before a lightning delay postponed the final minute of the game 30 minutes.

The Titans (2-8-1) got a pair of unassisted goals from Savannah Delgado. Lydia Owens had 10 saves in goal in the loss.


MACONAQUAH DEF. TAYLOR 25-5, 25-9, 25-8

Maconaquah (11-3) stayed undefeated in Mid-Indiana Conference play at 4-0 after sweeping the Titans.

Maconaquah coach Jessica Metcalf was very pleased in winning a hard-fought match.

“[I am] very proud of both teams for playing hard start to finish,” Metcalf said.

It was easy to tell as a red rash covered her arms and her face was painfully swollen. She is one of those people who loves being outdoors yet highly allergic to the common plant. Sometimes I believe she can get the rash by simply looking at the noxious weed.
