timberland COTTLEVILLE  • In spite of already having defeated rival Francis Howell North twice by an aggregate tally of six goals to one, the one thing Francis Howell Central couldn’t afford was a letdown against the rival Knights during the teams’ Class 3 sectional Tuesday.

timberland fashion boots “Getting the first goal for us is the big difference maker and then No. 2 ends the game,” Howell Central junior midfielder Tristyn Hasmer said. “That’s how we have to play. That’s how we approach it.”

timberland shoes Howell Central (13-13) struck first at the 22-minute, 28-second mark of the first half when Hasmer found the back of the Knights’ net.

The best chance for Howell North (8-15) came roughly 11 minutes later when Knights junior midfielder Keegan Fouch got a shot past Howell Central goalkeeper Scott Halbert on a slow roll.

Central junior defender Jordan Henderson came to the rescue, though, as he cleared the ball off the back line to preserve the shutout.

“They’ve got a creative player in No. 3 (Fouch),” Central coach Derek Phillips said. “They tried to go over top a little bit. Our back four did a great job, though, and that’s been a key in this (postseason) run.”

In the second half, Howell Central put the game away with a pair of goals.

With 19:03 left, junior midfielder Ryan Hutson scored to make it 2-0. Hutson’s goal came as the end of a combined miscue by the North defense and some hard work by the junior.

“The second goal is the big one,” Hutson said. “They tried to clear it and they cleared it up the middle and I just got a touch on it. I finished it.”

For good measure, Spartans sophomore midfielder Kyle Setchfield added the third goal on a breakaway with 4:15 to play.

“It’s amazing and I love breakaways,” Setchfield said. “Our forward did a great job knocking the ball off the defender’s foot and giving me that breakaway.”

Blaise Bachman, Colton Brown and Colton Schweigert earned assists in the victory.

Halbert earned the win over Howell North in goal for Howell Central.

The win means Central will face conference rival Timberland (24-2-2) in a quarterfinal game Saturday. After finishing double overtime tied at Seckman, the Wolves won 6-5 in penalty kicks to advance.

Timberland already owns a pair of wins over the Spartans this season.

“We’re getting a good opponent (in Timberland) that’s gotten us twice,” Phillips said. “We’ve got to be ready to play Saturday.

For Hutson, the game Saturday marks another chance at success. It's a success that has eluded Central in recent times.

"We made it here last year, so we're trying to push further," Hutson said. "We've got to play our game and go out there and just do what we know how to do."
