Points were at a premium in Monday's soccer matchup at Jane Terry Hoffman Field in Oneida, but two were more than enough for the Lady Indians, as they defeated Greenback 2-0 in their second consecutive shutout.

Playing for the first time in nearly a week after being rained out Thursday, Oneida (6-2, 3-2) remained perfect in non-district play with goals from Bailee Newport and Bailey Lovett. Newport's goal was assisted by Jenna Bridges. Lovett's goal was unassisted.

"The kids played hard," Oneida coach Scott Terry said. "They created several good chances for us on the offensive end, which many times started from our defenders making stops and counter-attacking quickly through our midfield, and distributing great passes forward into space for our attack."

The shutout was Oneida's fourth of the season.

"Our keeper played well again, with several good saves," Terry said. "We have many players that are absolutely tough as nails, and she is definitely one of them."

The Lady Indians were to have been back in action Tuesday at Rockwood, which is in the midst of an impressive season. Terry said his team must be ready for the challenge.

"When these kids decide to play, they do very well," he said. "We just have to be able to do that as a team for 80 minutes. There are times when we do, and some times when we don't. We'll keep working hard, focused on improving daily."
