Minus Sturgeon,
SF wins anyway

South Fulton bounced back from a shutout loss to Crockett County earlier in the week, edging Trenton 2-1 in prep soccer Thursday afternoon.
The Devilettes not only improved to 6-3, but did so without arguably its best player as standout Desiray Sturgeon missed Thursday’s match after suffering a knee injury against CC.
Lexi Johnson and Samantha Murray had goals for SF vs. Trenton and Taleeah Cross had 26 saves in goal for the Big Red.
Mikaela Hardy was credited with a pair of blocks, and both Emilee Goodman and Linda Kaye Dickerson also had a block.
First-year head coach Emily Belote lauded the overall play of Murray, Johnson and Sara Reams and the defensive efforts of Carly Reams.

Coleman and Calyx Clemons worked together on a block, while Fair had a block.
