JONESBOROUGH — Build momentum is what the Dobyns-Bennett girls soccer team wants to do after Tuesday’s 9-0 District 1-AAA road win against David Crockett.

The Lady Indians added this win to the huge boost they received from Saturday’s 1-0 victory at Greeneville, which could be a big steppingstone for the end of the season.

“We really want to try to bring some continuity back over from Saturday,” D-B coach Blake Rutherford said. “We did that and we got some points.

“We got started a little bit slower than we’re used to, but I think we settled in. We got some good goals, especially in the second half. We got points off of corners, which we haven’t been good at, and off of some free kicks. We had some different people contributing as well.”


Seven players scored for the Tribe, led by two goals apiece from Haylee Tilson and Jessica Winkler.

The match’s first two goals came mere seconds apart in the seventh minute. Claire Chapman found the back of the net first, and Winkler quickly followed with a goal.

McKenzie Guest scored next off a penalty kick after being taken down from behind inside the box.

Tilson tallied her first goal in the 35th minute, and Winkler followed with her second of the match.

Up 5-0 at halftime, the Lady Indians cruised to the finish line behind goals from Tilson, Tayla Holt, Audra Steadman and Madeline Lyons.

Tilson’s second goal was a beautiful header off a corner-kick ball by Brantley Coggins.


D-B took 27 shots, and Tribe goalkeeper Catie Love kept a clean sheet with Crockett unable to squeeze off a shot.

Lady Pioneers keeper Olivia Henry made 13 saves.


The Lady Indians embark on an important two-game stretch, playing Jefferson County on Thursday and Science Hill next Tuesday.

Crockett hosts Daniel Boone on Thursday.
