Braves spike Tigers

Northwestern tops Marion, Western in girls golf


“Northwestern always gets in our head a little bit and that’s kind of how it went. We were just uncharacteristically poor in terms of our shape.”



Taylor scored twice in the second half to overturn a deficit and take the game. Savannah Delgado scored Taylor’s first goal to even the game at 1-all, then Lauren Shively scored Taylor’s go-ahead goal on a penalty kick with 10 minutes left to give the Titans the win. Lydia Owens had eight saves for the Titans (2-6-1).

“We knew it was going to be pretty evenly matched and we came out pretty flat,” Taylor coach John Piotrowicz said. “Our girls thankfully kept pushing and improving as the game went on. We got a little more organized in the second half and got a little more control of the ball. I think we started wearing them down a little bit.”


Abby Webster broke a 2-all deadlock with a header from 18 yards out off an assist by Sarah Connolly to give the Panthers the victory on the road.

Courtney Pitzer opened the account for Western with a goal off a feed from Emma Harbaugh, then Harbaugh scored off a Connolly assist for a 2-1 halftime lead before Delphi equalized again. Western improved to 5-3 with the victory.

“I thought that we passed really well,” Western coach Nicole Jackson said. “We played on a little bit of a smaller field and we didn’t get as many shots as we needed but I feel like we’re getting better at working as a team, as a unit.”
