Lady Toppers Fall To Marquette


After outscoring Centralia and Gillespie 10-2 to start the week, the Hillsboro girls soccer team got a taste of the other side of that scoreline on Friday, April 12, against Alton Marquette.

The Explorers led 6-0 at halftime and added one more goal to score their fifth win of what is a rigorous schedule dotted with larger teams. Hillsboro moved to 7-4-1 on the year with the loss, but will have the opportunity to get back on track on Monday, April 15, in the rescheduled fifth place game of the Litchfield Panther Classic against Taylorville. On Tuesday, April 16, the Toppers will take on Carlinville in a key South Central Conference match in Hillsboro.
