Collinsville caps perfect conference soccer season

The Collinsville girls soccer team finished off its regular season with a 7-1 victory over host Belleville East on Thursday.

The Kahoks (14-6-1, 6-0) have won seven consecutive SWC championships and are 38-3-1 in the league during that period.

“That’s pretty impressive in a conference as talented as ours,” Collinsville coach Clay Smith said. “It credits the hard work of these girls we’ve had for the last seven years. They’re a hard-working bunch of girls, they execute well and they’re a great group to be around.”

Emily Holten and Courtney Marten had two goals apiece for Collinsville, which led 2-0 at halftime. Andrea Frerker, Destiny Johnson and Kaylee McSpadden had one goal apiece.

The Lancers fell to 8-7-4 and 1-4-1.

Collinsville is seeded first in the Class 3A Quincy Regional and will play the host Blue Devils, seeded sixth, at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday.

The Kahoks placed second in the state tournament last year and fourth in 2015.
