Marion downs Mt. Vernon

MT. VERNON — Marion's girls soccer team blanked the Lady Rams 7-0 Tuesday.

Marion tallied four goals in the opening half before adding another three in the second.

Amelia Quinn had 17 saves in goal for the Lady Rams.

Our keeper just keeps getting better every game,” Mt. Vernon coach Jim Duncan said. “I think we have one of the strongest keepers in the conference so we're thankful for a good keeper.”

Marion took the 4-0 edge into halftime and added a fifth score about three minutes into the second half. Quinn recorded four straight saves before the Wildcats added a pair of late scores.

Mt. Vernon struggled to mount an offensive attack throughout the game against the Marion defense. Duncan said he challenged his team at halftime to open the second half with 10 minutes of possession soccer, moving the ball wide and crossing it into the box.

For the first seven or eight minutes, we did,” Duncan said. “But then after that Marion put the pressure on.”

Mt. Vernon is 2-11-2 this season and travels to Massac County on Thursday. The Lady Rams lost to Massac in penalty kicks at the Centralia Tournament. Mt. Vernon and Marion will face each other again at 5 p.m., May 20 in the 2A regional.
