SOCCER: Knights slumping after early success

SIKESTON – The Sikeston Bulldogs continued Farmington’s soccer woes on Monday after the Knights’ first losses on the weekend. Farmington had four more shots on goal than Sikeston, but the Knights couldn’t find the back of the net. Sikeston protected their home field with a 3-1 victory over Farmington.

Sikeston scored in the 47th, 53rd, and 63rd minutes of the contest. The Knights’ lone goal came in the 65th minute when Ross Wulfert set up Chad Vessell for the score.

Farmington’s Jordan Pannett had seven saves. The Knights made 14 shots and Sikeston ended with 10.

On Tuesday the Knights dropped another close one as the St. Pius Lancers scored in overtime to win the game 3-2. The Lancers headed in a corner kick, their second of the game, for the sudden death goal.

“We just sort of watched it happen,” said Farmington coach Rusty Sancegraw. “We’re really tired. This makes our eighth game in the last eight days.”

Johan Keemss scored the first goal of the game on a pass from Lucas Vogelsang at the six-minute mark. The 1-0 score held up until the half.

St. Pius scored at the 50 minute mark and then again at the 53 minute mark. Patrick Wulfers pushed the game into extra time when he took a cross-field pass from Josh Anderson to score Farmington’s second goal for the 2-2 tie.
