CHANUTE — The Allen Community College women’s soccer team played its first match of the playoffs against Highland Community College. The Red Devils won 4-0. The game was played at Chanute on artificial turf. 

“It’s kind of odd being on the road for a home game,” said ACC coach Jeremy McGinnis. “Our field was under a little bit of water. We moved the game to make sure we gave both teams the opportunity to play their best.”

Autumn Wyatt, Samantha Burks, Yasmin Evans, and Danielle Jeffcoat scored for the Lady Red Devils.

Mia Evans had an assist and took four shots on goal. Chelsea Thurman also had an assist.

“We have a lot of good pieces,” McGinnis said. “You can see we have great players who step up when another player is not playing their best.”

Saturday, Allen will play Pratt for the Region VI title. Allen beat Pratt 3-0 on Oct. 18. The two teams also tied on Sept. 22.
