The St. Scholastica Academy Doves blanked Byrd 1-0 last night in a match played in Lafayette at Teurlings Catholic as the teams split the travel distance playing at a neutral site. The Doves secured the win on Sami Vercher’s goal in the 25th minute. Vercher was assisted by Courtney Robicheaux, the Doves’ “Energizer Bunny,” who never runs out of energy. SSA coach Mike Ortner said, “Byrd is a quality opponent and I was pleased to get a win off such a strong side,” Ortner said. Ortner named Brooke Doyle his top defender and Doves’ keeper Bizzy Kalmbach posted the shut out. SSA moved to 9-1-2, while Byrd is 11-4-4. SSA opens district play this Thursday hosting the Hammond Lady Tornadoes.
