"It was a rollercoaster of a game," Alton head girls soccer coach Gwen Sabo said. "All three of Belleville West's goals came on dead balls (2 PK's and a set piece right outside the box). We had moments we looked really good and controlled the game, and then we had spurts where we did not. Out of my 11 starters, five of them were nursing injuries tonight. I am glad we came away with the result and we look to rest and recover before a hard matchup with O'Fallon Tuesday."

Sabo said she was very proud of Redman - this is the third game she has appeared for the Redbirds and she scored her first career varsity goal and an assist while nursing a hip injury.

"I am excited to have her on the team this year."
