The DeKalb girls soccer team earned a 1-0 victory over Sycamore on Thursday.

Morgan Beaty had the lone goal of the match for the Barbs, with Alexis Hammond getting the assist.

DeKalb improved to 13-1-2 and 9-0-1 in Northern Illinois Big 12 East play with the victory. It was goalkeeper Maddie Frye’s 12th shutout of the season.

“Just a tremendous defensive effort,” Barbs coach Phil Rouse said. “Our defense kept a clean sheet all night. ... Our defense stayed stout and gave us another shutout.”


Treadwell earns CG win for G-K: Genoa-Kingston pitcher Bobby Treadwell struck out nine in a 10-2 complete-game victory over North Boone.

At the plate, Tommy Hansen went 2 for 4 with a double and triple for the Cogs, Mike Kuhn went 3 for 3, and Ben Rabe was 2 for 3 with a double. Ben Graff finished 1 for 3 with a double and three RBIs.

G-K is 5-16 and 3-5 in the Big Northern East.

“We played a very good game defensively on a day where the weather wasn’t very good, and our offense was aggressive from the first inning on,” Cogs coach Anson Ellis said.

Knights fall: Morris beat Kaneland, 12-4. Dan Miller went 2 for 4 with a run and an RBI for the Knights, who are 10-14 and 7-8 in the NI Big 12 East.

“It was senior night. Always nice to win on senior night for the seniors,” G-K coach Mike Lauer said. “They’ve been a real good group. There’s seven of them, it’s tremendous to have that many kids in the program stay with it.”
