Thursday Roundup: Sidney’s girls soccer team ties Centerville

SIDNEY — Sidney’s girls soccer team kept its good start going on Thursday night. The Yellow Jackets tied Centerville in a scoreless game to stay undefeated with a 5-0-1 record.

Centerville (6-0-1) has won Greater Western Ohio Conference divisional championships each of the last three seasons and advanced to the Division I district finals last year.

Though Sidney lost nine players to graduation off of last season’s 8-1-1 squad, there has not been a drop off so far. The Yellow Jackets outscored their first five opponents 29-4, including a 7-0 win over Stebbins on Wednesday night.

Senior forward Elaine Wisenmayer leads the GWOC with 14 goals and has 10 assists, while freshman forward Khia McMillen has scored seven goals and has five assists. Sophomore goalkeeper Carly Dean has 40 saves and three shutouts to her credit.

Sidney plays next on Monday at Northmont.

Sidney 2, Stebbins 0

Jalen Hudgins scored both goals in Sidney’s win on Thursday. Evan Burden and Damien Jones each had an assist.

“We played much better tonight in our win, but we are still missing on finishing the ball in the net,” Sidney coach Jamie Fridley said. “If we can get that one aspect of our game down, we will be even a better team. We got off to a good start tonight with two goals in the first half, then our scoring woes got us again in the second half. We beat them in all phases of the game, attacking, defending and possession.”

Sidney (5-3, 4-0 GWOC American North) plays next on Tuesday at Trotwood-Madison. Saturday’s originally scheduled home game against St. Marys has been postponed to Sept. 28.

Lehman took a 3-0 lead before New Knoxville scored, then hit another right before halftime to take a 4-1 lead.

“That fourth goal right before the break was big,” Lehman coach Tom Wiseman said. “We had settled in and went back into some bad habits and weren’t playing really good soccer for about 20 minutes. Once we got the one right before the half, that gave us the breathing room we needed.”

Chris Covert and Joseph Baende scored the Rangers’ goals. Baende and Jonah Lageman each had an assist, while Ryland Dyrness had 14 saves.

Lehman (4-2, 4-0 WOSL) plays next on Sept. 21 at Jackson Center.
