The 2021 Sherman High Lady Tide soccer squad dropped a match to Riverside last week.

BELLE - Sherman High (0-5) visited the Riverside Lady Warriors (0-2) on Tuesday and Boone County side has been on the hunt for their first win of the season with their new lineup of athletes.

This match followed a 6-0 loss against Mingo Central (2-1) at home the Saturday prior.

Sherman had to play down to nine players on the field, which took its toll on the energy of the players after some time. After a half-hour of holding Riverside to 2-0, the Lady Tide were overwhelmed by a slew of goals. Juniors Alena Armstrong and Kennedy Perry led Riverside in goals with 2 each. Freshmen Jill Campbell and Ella Cook, sophomore Rachel Siders, and seniors Olivia Minor, Charley Kauff, Emily Fitzwater, and Olivia Clark each scored 1.

Now 0-7 after a loss on Saturday, the Lady Tide play another home match on Tuesday, Sept. 14 at 6 p.m. There, they will take on the Lincoln County High School Lady Panthers, who sit at a 2-2-1 record after falling to the 1-1 Pocahontas County Lady Warriors on Saturday.
