A tough stretch of soccer games for St. Stephens got even harder on Monday, when the Indians hosted second-ranked Hickory.
The Red Tornadoes (18-1-2, 11-0-0) scored five goals, including three in the second half, maintaining their unbeaten mark in conference play with a 5-0 win over St. Stephens.
It was the third straight game that the Indians (7-5-2, 5-4-2) were shut out, following a 0-0 tie against Hibriten and a 2-0 loss to Foard last Wednesday.
"We are in a little bit of a slump right now,â€ť said Indians coach Chris Nelson. â€śHopefully, we can get it together.â€ť
Ten games into his career as quarterback for the St. Stephens Indians varsity football program, Matt Williams is already making huge strides.
The 6-foot, 170-pound freshman is coming into his own after starting the season sharing the snaps for the Indians (3-7, 1-4).
â€śWe knew coming into this season that he was going to be a solid quarterback for us,â€ť said Indians coach Fred Whalen. â€śHe worked out with us at the kids camp over the summer. When he worked with us, we saw the potential he had there.â€ť
