Nobody was eager to play in the wet, windy, cold conditions Friday afternoon.
So the Bradford girls soccer team wrapped things up early.
The Red Devils scored six times in the first half and four in the second, blanking Wilmot, 10-0, in a non-conference match at Bradford Stadium that ended at 61 minutes due to the 10-goal rule. The junior varsity match was canceled so the varsity match could begin earlier.
“The field conditions and game temperatures cooperated to get us in an early game,” Bradford coach David Naylor said. “We have emphasized quick, dynamic play this year, and today was the first time we have really seen that. Excellent play through the middle.”
Kim Lopez and Riley Strelow each tallied two goals and two assists. Bridgette Covelli scored twice, Erin Puhek and Mia Prince both had a goal and an assist and Ally Slomkowski and Emily Winter added one goal apiece.
Notching one assist each were Alyssa Wolf, Sophie Loeffler, Anika Katt and Aaliyah Vazques.
No details were reported by Wilmot.
Tremper 5, Racine St. Catherine’s 2
The Trojans scored three unanswered goals in the second half after leading 2-1 at halftime in the non-conference match at Ameche Field.
Lauren McKeon scored twice for the Trojans (3-0-1), Chloe Geryol added a goal and two assists, Haley Leadingham contributed a goal and an assist, Sam Cibrario scored once and Grace Van Guyse added an assist.
Josalyn Ramos made five saves for Tremper.
“(Assistant) coach (Chris) Tindall made some great halftime adjustments during his talk with the girls, and we were able to better adapt to the conditions and what St. Cat’s was showing us,” Tremper coach Todd Hardy said.
“I was impressed with the way we passed the ball.”
Shoreland Lutheran 7, Wisconsin Lutheran 1
The visiting Pacers led 1-0 at halftime and erupted for six second-half goals in the non-conference win.
Samantha Large scored twice for Shoreland (4-1), giving her nine goals this season. Aminah Diagne, Miriam Zarling, Jenna Pruess, Lauren Adams and Kayla Pagel each scored once for the Pacers, while Diagne, Zarling and Large recorded assists.
Kylie Lange made two saves.
“The girls are moving the ball extremely well early in the season and finding the open teammate,” Shoreland coach Matthew Grow said. “Hopefully this will only get better as the season goes on.”
