NORTH MANCHESTER – The winning ways continued in a big way Thursday night for the Warsaw girls soccer team.
The Tigers took to the road and mashed Manchester 8-0 in a non-conference match.
Junior Brooklyn Jackson and sophomore Elizabeth VanWormer led the way in the rout. Jackson scored three goals and had three assists and VanWormer also tallied three goals to go with two assists.
“Hat’s off to Brooklyn Jackson and Elizabeth Van Wormer – literally,” said first-year Warsaw coach Peter Lucht in an email. “Both scored three goals to complete their hat trick, and each individual contributed to the success of their teammates as well.”
Junior Danielle Hutcherson had a goal and two assists for Warsaw, which improved to 8-2-2 with its sixth straight win.
“Danielle Hutcherson continues to impress from midfield, adding another goal and two assists on the evening,” noted Lucht.
Junior Megan Kratzsch scored her first career varsity goal for the Tigers. Sophomore Lexi Myers assisted on the goal.
“Senior keeper Abby Schue, senior defender Zoe Smyth and freshman defender Rachel McClelland continue to lockdown their opponents, earning another shutout,” Lucht said. “Defenders Rosie Fleming and Maddy Martz were able to register their first varsity start with a shutout as well.
“Congratulations to Megan Kratzsch for scoring her first career varsity goal, and in the upper 90’s no less.”
Warsaw had a 23-1 edge in shots. Senior keeper Abby Schue posted another shutout in goal for the Tigers.
