CAPE CENTRAL 4, SIKESTON 0

SIKESTON, Mo. -- Jon Mark Thompson scored two goals as the Tigers blanked the Bulldogs.

Heath Orr added the final goal on an assist from Nathan Foley.

"We were up 2-0 at halftime," said Central coach Tom Doyle. "But I didn't think we played real well in the first half. In the second half, we played better and had a lot better ball control."

POPLAR BLUFF 9, JACKSON 4

MEADOW HEIGHTS 12-15-15

LEOPOLD 15-4-4

LEOPOLD, Mo. -- It took the Lady Panthers three sets to pull off a win in a battle of Bollinger County rivals.

Meadow Heights coach Erin Hoffman thought her team may have been a little too confident going into the match.

"After the season we had last year, we think we're unbeatable," said Hoffman, referring to the Lady Panthers' 32-3 campaign last year. "We were too cocky. We walked in there thinking it would be easy and it wasn't. That loss woke them up a little bit."

Holly Boyd had 12 kills and six kill blocks for the Lady Panthers (9-1), while Ashley Brune had eight kills and five kill blocks.

For Leopold (6-2-1), Holly Jansen had 10 kills, Courtney Wesbecher had seven and Kyla Horrell had six. Wendy Vandeven posted 17 assists.
