ROBINSON CREEK - Visiting Prestonsburg pulled away to defeat Shelby Valley 4-1 Saturday in an early-season girls’ high school soccer match in Pike County.
Prestonsburg broke open a game that was scoreless at the break. The Lady Blackcats came alive in the second half, scoring four goals to notch the win.
Senior Caitlin Kidd and sophomore Katie Porter paced Prestonsburg with two goals apiece.
Freshman Jackie Kidd delivered an assist for the Lady Blackcats.
“All of our defensive fullbacks, led by senior Emily Rice and junior Jenna Little, played a great game and took a lot of pressure off goalie Autumn Hall,” Prestonsburg Coach Scott Porter commented. “Defensive starters Kaylee Collins and Allyson DeRossett were on the sideline recovering from injuries sustained against Menifee County, so our younger girls really stepped up this week, filling their void.”
Prestonsburg was scheduled to host Sheldon Clark Monday evening but the contest was cancelled due to the Martin County girls’ soccer squad having too many players out ill.
