Northridge Girls 5, Wawasee 0
The Lady Warriors traveled to Middlebury Tuesday and came back with a donut. Unfortunately for Wawasee, it wasn’t of the Rise n’ Roll variety, but rather the kind that sits on the scoreboard.
Wawasee (1-8-2, 0-3 NLC) will next host Plymouth in another conference matchup on Thursday.
Goshen Boys 11, Wawasee 2
Unfortunately for the Warriors, the IHSAA’s new mercy rule came into play tonight during their home match with Goshen. The newly imposed rule calls for a running clock when a team takes a five-goal lead. Additionally, the game will be ended after 20 minutes of play in the second half if a team has a nine-goal advantage.
On Tuesday, both rules were in play with the contest ending with 3:23 left on the clock when the RedHawks netted their 11th goal on the evening.
For the Warriors, Reuben Camargo found the goal, assisted by Avery Shutters. Mason Possell scored the second goal unassisted.
:The guys played with heart and desire,” said head coach Jordan Sharp. “We need to be tougher defending but showed new life going forward.”
The Warriors will continue in the NLC round robin on Thursday when they travel to Concord.
NorthWood Boys 7, Mishawaka 0
A road trip to Mishawaka was just the tonic the Panthers needed to get back in to the win column. NorthWood hadn’t won since Sept. 8, going 0-4-1 in the process.
Sophomore Solomon Yegon notched his first career hat trick for NorthWood. Also scoring for the Panthers were Carlos Alvarez, Dominic DeFreitas, Grant Miller and Luis Castillo.
The Panthers moved to 5-7-1 on the season, 2-4 in conference play. Next up is a tough non-conference duel at Mishawaka Marian on Thursday.
Culver Girls Academy 8, Lakeland Christian Academy 0
LCA traveled to Culver Academy on a very windy and rainy evening.
The first half LCA repelled the attack from CA forcing them to shoot from distance and Lauren Grose kept making save after save. It would take about 15 minutes before CGA would get on the scoreboard and were only up by two at half.
The second half the rain and wind picked up and LCA would hang tough for about 10 minutes before the Eagles would add a third tally. CGA would then open the game up and net five more in the half to win the game.
“We played hard in the first half and really made things difficult for them,” said Cougar coach Nat Raber. “You could just see the weather and fatigue take a toll on the team and we slowed down a lot. We are starting to get healthy and hopefully will have everyone back by this weekend. Lauren Grose was great in goal tonight. She got her first start against Argos and her second tonight, and has played well in Finley’s absence.”
LCA (2-6) will travel to Trinity Greenlawn on Friday.
LCA is 2-6 on the season
