GIRLS GAME 2: WEST 9, East 1

The West girls overpowered the East team in a contest that featured the first of two players who scored four goals apiece in Saturday’s games. Another West girl had a hat trick in the game.

No scoring occurred on either side until Bailey Yoakum of Wabash kicked the ball into the net at the 15:46 mark of the first half to give the West a 1-0 lead.

A little more than two minutes later, Stacey Barron of Michigan City Marquette Catholic scored with 13:27 remaining in the half to boot the West advantage to 2-0.

About seven minutes passed until Yoakum powered her second goal into the twine at the 6:25 mark of the initial period, and Yoakum completed the hat trick with another goal at the 2:56 mark to boost the West lead to 4-0 at intermission.

The West continued to assault the goal when play resumed in the second half, as Clay City’s Ana Molina scored back-to-back goals at the 37:08 and 35:11 marks of the period for a 6-0 West advantage.

The East finally removed their goose egg from the scoreboard with 28:52 remaining in the second half when Mishawaka’s Rachel Gomez scored to pull the East to within 6-1.

Barron scored her second goal of the game with 18:12 left to boost the West lead to 7-1, Yoakum tallied her fourth goal of the day at the 7:41 mark for an 8-1 advantage, and Molina completed her hat trick by booting the ball into the net with 5:44 remaining in the contest for a 9-1 West lead to close the scoring.

“I’ve never scored four goals in a game before,” Yoakum said afterward. “I have to credit the other girls on my team for getting me the ball where I could score them. We had a really talented team and I enjoyed myself today. I’m a junior and this year was the first year we had a soccer team at Wabash and we finished 3-4-1. We got to play Northwestern in the sectional and that was a good experience.”

Cassidy Schneider of Woodlan was goalkeeper for the West, and Stephanie Frecher of Heritage was the goalkeeper for the East.
