Prep Roundup: NW golf moves to 8-0

Eastern girls soccer opens MIC play with 11-0 win over Peru.


“We started out extremely slow; I don’t know if it was the heat or what,” Eastern coach Chris Rees said. “We played at their level in the first half and were only up 3-0 at halftime. I wasn’t pleased with our first half performance. The second half was much better. We scored eight goals and played more of the way we’re capable of.”


Line Hanson scored both goals in the victory for the Braves, scoring on assists from Kate White and Jaleigha Stull. Erin Orttel had 20 saves in goal for Maconaquah.

Savannah Delgado scored Taylor’s goal on an assist from Lauren Shively. Lydia Owens had eight saves in goal for the Titans.

Maconaquah scored 20 minutes into the first period and took a 1-0 lead into intermission. Taylor tied it in the second half, before the Braves scored the winning goal with two minutes left in the second overtime period.

“We did a good job of staying in our lines and keeping shape,” Taylor coach John Piotrowicz said. “We controlled the ball the majority of the time but struggled putting the ball in the goal. We had 16 shots on goal compared to their five. I’m proud of the kids’ effort for the way they worked hard and hustled. We improved 100 percent from our last match against Rossville on Tuesday. As a coach, that was great to see.”



Robert Olsen had a hat trick and an assist and Jacob Wagner netted two goals and an assist as the Purple Tigers won at home to improve to 3-1 on the season. Grant Condon had five saves.

“I thought we did a really good job possessing the ball,” Jim Wagner said. “We worked the ball around a lot on the offensive end. The defense pulled up well, keeping the ball on the attack, cutting off [Kokomo’s] outlet passes. I was very impressed with the entire team effort on controlling the ball.”
