Sarah Welshans attempts to get the ball away from Madisonville’s Raelynn Blanford during regional play on Monday.

The Lady Trojans (3-10-1) soccer season came to an end on Monday night in a lopsided 10-0 loss to the defending region champions, Madisonville North Hopkins (15-5-1), on the Lady Maroons’ home pitch.

But while the final score is one sided, it hardly tells the truth about the match. In a rain drenched regional opener, the Lady Trojans and Lady Maroons went scoreless until the 23rd minute, when Madisonville’s Kennedy Justice broke through to put a notch on the board. A few moments later she would make the score 2-0 as she knocked in a penalty kick.

“Webster came out and challenged us early on and we kept knocking at the door, but we were able to get through and scored in bunches.” said Madisonville head coach John Tichenor.

By the half, the Lady Maroons had extended their lead to 7-0, and then would add three more in the second half to claim a 10-0 win. Madisonville will advance to the semis where they will face Trigg County.

Freshman Lily Whitsell led the Lady Trojans in scoring this season, posting five goals. Senior Brooklyn Conrad added four, while Allison Jamie score twice and Kamryn Pratt kicked in one.

Webster will lose three seniors after this season. In addition to Conrad, Pratt and Sara Garrard will both graduate in May.

BOYSThe opening round of the boys regional tournament was scheduled to begin on Monday night as well, with the Webster County Trojans (7-10-1) facing University Heights Academy (11-10-0), the top team in the region. That game, however, was postponed due to inclement weather.
