The Lady Indians were defeated 8-1 by Amory, as their only goal came off the foot of Savannah Sartin in the second half, off an assist by ICC-signee Brittany Sullivan.

On Friday, the ladies bounced back, with a vengeance, as they annihilated the Louisville Lady Wildcats 10-0.

Six different Lady Indians scored goals while five different players garnered assists in the match.

Emma Logan led the way with three goals, followed by Sullivan and Sartin with two apiece, and Carly Childers, Baleigh Tanner and Nora Cipkowski each added a goal.

Sullivan and Childers each had three assists, Logan had two, while Cora Yielding and Haley Ricks added one each.

In boys’ action, the Indians dropped a 7-1 road contest to Amory last Tuesday, where Skylar Grissom scored the only goal on an assist by Caleb Whittle.

The Indians rebounded from the loss with an 8-4 home win against Louisville, as Whittle had a monster night.

Whittle’s four goals led the way for IAHS, while Coby Williamson added a pair of goals.

Grissom and Clay Cayson each recorded goals for the Indians, as well.

Williamson and Grissom picked up a pair of assists apiece, and Caleb Slone, Kaleb Riley and Thomas Cox also had assists.

IAHS looks to continue its success on the pitch with a trip to the Oxford Showcase Tournament this Saturday.
