Dixon, Sevilla score two each in Hickory win

October 24, 2011

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,” said Indians coach Chris Nelson. “Hopefully, we can get it together.”
