Western girls soccer shuts out Oak Hill

Thor sets NW girls XC record at Marion Classic.

Western’s girls soccer team beat Oak Hill 3-0 Saturday in Russiaville, scoring all three goals after halftime.

Sarah Connolly scored twice, bookending a Lauren Abney strike. Abby Webster assisted on Connolly’s first netter to open the scoring and turn the action Western’s way. Cybil Johnson had three saves.

“We had a lot of shots in the first half and we maintained possession of the ball, but we weren’t finding the corners [of the goal] and all our shots seemed to find the keeper,” Western coach Nicole Jackson said. “The second half we were finding the corners and we were crashing the nets — had another goal off a rebound — and just started playing more aggressively.”

The Panthers improved to 3-3 with the win.


Kokomo finished 2-1 at the Bloomington tourney over the weekend, just missing out on the title to Evansville Harrison. Evansville Harrison beat Kokomo 1-0 on Friday. Catherine Skaggs had three saves for the Kats (5-3).

“I felt like we came out and really out-played Harrison and they were able to capitalize on an advantage kick later in the first half,” Kokomo coach Kevin Duggins said. “We just weren’t making good decisions on finishing. We lost the tournament by one point because of that game. Evansville got two wins and a tie, and we got two wins.

Kokomo opened Saturday’s play with a 4-0 victory over Martinsville. Taylor Coram scored twice, Jania Eddington and Cheyenne Eltringham also hit the net. Eltringham and Taylor Sparling each had an assist. Skaggs had one save.

The Kats closed with a 2-1 win over Bedford-North Lawrence. Eltringham netted Kokomo’s first goal and then the Kats scored the go-ahead goal came with three minutes left when Michaela Wade scored directly on a corner kick. Skaggs had three saves against BNL.
