JV soccer nets third straight victory

April 12, 2007

After a slow start to the season, the Lansing High junior varsity girls soccer team has caught fire.

LHS was shut out in its first two games, but it has responded with three straight shutouts and 15 unanswered goals.

The latest victory during that stretch came Tuesday when Lansing drilled Bonner Springs, 8-0, at Lansing Middle School.

Coach Jean Volk's squad received goals from six different players in the victory. Freshman Amy Briggs opened the scoring in the 17th minute when her blast from 20 yards out skipped through the goalie's legs and into the net. The Lions scored four more goals in the half before cruising to the victory.

Sophomore Katie Marton and freshman Elle Hauver scored two goals apiece, and freshmen Ashley Harrington and Abbey Lozenski and junior Katie Cristiano also added goals.

The win against Bonner Springs was Lansing's second in as many days. It defeated Topeka Cair Paravel, 2-0, on Monday as Lozenski and Harrington netted goals.

The winning streak began Thursday with a 5-0 victory over Ottawa. Harrington and Marton each scored twice in that game, and Hauver also added a goal.

Freshman goalkeeper Tayler Dumlao recorded all three shutouts.
