SPORTS SHORTS: STC/EM girls go 0-3 at W-SR tourney

WAVERLY – Araceli Angel posted two goals in South Tama County/East Marshall’s three games at the Waverly-Shell Rock Tournament on Saturday.

Unfortunately for the Trojans, the end result was three losses. STC/EM (1-13) lost 5-1 to Mason City in the opener, 3-0 to Des Moines East and 6-1 to Decorah.

“The team played hard and continued to show improvement,” said STC/EM coach Bob McBain. “I was very proud of the girls effort today. They never gave up and played hard in all three matches. This was a total team effort and were rewarded with some goals.”

The two goals scored Saturday gives the squad three for the season. Kristian Lasley has the other one.

The Trojans, who have now lost 10 straight matches, next play Monday against PCM in Tama. The varsity kicks off at 4:30 p.m. STC/EM also hosts CAL on Thursday and then closes out the regular season against Union Community on May 27.
