Purple Tigers maul Hot Dogs in girls soccer

Western boys tennis blanks Maconaquah in MIC play.

Northwestern’s girls soccer squad scored a 6-1 home victory over Frankfort Thursday night with Kaitlyn Daanen, Brandi Harmon and Korey Price each netting two goals. Harmon, Price and Brook Treadway each supplied assists, and goalie Chloe Redman had a low-stress outing with two saves.

Northwestern coach Samantha Elkins said her team’s “possession and passing were very good” which gave the Purple Tigers (2-3) plenty of looks at the Frankfort goal.

“There was really improving flow for the game and a good opportunity for the girls to gain some confidence in front of the goal,” Elkins said. “That was great. We appreciate that.”

The Panthers put in a dominant performance to improve to 3-3 on the year and 2-1 in Mid-Indiana Conference play, building a 6-0 lead by the half.

Sarah Connolly led Western with four goals, while Emma Harbaugh and Abby Webster each added three goals and an assist.

Autumn Brady posted a pair of assists, while Courtney Pitzer and Chassidy Lenn both contributed an assist. Goalie Cybill Johnson posted three saves.

“We passed well and communicated well,” Western coach Nicole Jackson said. “It was good see [the Panthers] play their game and get back to their old selves. In the last nine seconds of the game [Maconaquah] had a high bouncer that went just out of the reach [Johnson]. She was disappointed because she wanted a shutout, but those things happen. We got excellent effort from the kids who came off the bench. Everyone that came in played hard.”

Jaleigha Stull scored Maconaquah’s goal on an assist from Fabiana Morandini.

Mason May had a hand in five goals for the Panthers, who improved to 5-2-1 overall and 2-1 in the Mid-Indiana Conference after dropping a game to Northwestern in a penalty shootout the night before.

It was easy to tell as a red rash covered her arms and her face was painfully swollen. She is one of those people who loves being outdoors yet highly allergic to the common plant. Sometimes I believe she can get the rash by simply looking at the noxious weed.
