Quakers blank Big Red

STEUBENVILLE – The New Philadelphia girls soccer team downed Steubenville Big Red, 4-0, Thursday at Harding Stadium.

“New Philadelphia is a very talented squad,” said Big Red coach Jared Robinson. “They play in a harder area and their record (7-0-2) shows it. However we played with them for the majority of the game and being able to possess the ball and complete a series of passes and go toe-to-toe with them is just going to make us stronger for the rest of the season.”

Tori Moreland, Karli-Ann Sanders, Lauren Ramey and Joy Leindecker scored for the Quakers. April Blackwell had four saves.

Loren Gray collected 18 saves for Big Red.

FUS men’s soccer loses

STEUBENVILLE – The Franciscan University of Steubenville men’s soccer team dropped a 4-3 contest to visiting Westminster College Thursday.

“What we talk about a lot is the self-confidence to know you’re doing the right things and the guys are really getting that,” head coach Ward Rogers said. “Sometimes we’re staying on the ball too long and we’re not making that last little pass that really breaks them down.”

Mark Allen gave the Barons a 1-0 lead 10 minutes into the contest. After Westminster scored three straight, John Imbimbo scored from outside the box and on a penalty kick one minute later to tie things up. Westminster scored in the 78th minute for the win.

The Barons host Washington & Jefferson at 5 p.m. Wednesday.
