Lady Trojans Thump Hopkins Central 10-0

School trips, injuries and suspensions cut the Lady Storm squad to just nine players. And the match ended via the mercy rule 52 minutes into the action when the Lady Trojans scored their 10th goal.

Webster improved to 1-1-1 in district action and 5-6-1 overall. Central dipped to 1-2 in district play and 2-7-2 overall.

"I know Central was without several of its players, but they played really hard after coming off a win over Union County the night before," noted WCHS head coach Tom Welshans. "This was a very big win for us."

Back-to-back goals from Lauren Grant quickly put Webster on top, one at the five minute mark and the her second goal three minutes later. Webster applied continuous defensive pressure throughout the match, limiting the Lady Storm to just one shot attempt in the first half. Meanwhile, the Lady Trojans 'camped-out' in front of the HCCHS goal, firing away at will.

Page Little pushed the scored to 3-0 at the 20-minute mark and then five minutes later senior Karla Castro made it 4-0 with her first varsity goal. Taylor Denison capped off the first half with her third goal of the season, pushing the WCHS lead to 5-0 at intermission.

The scoring parade continued throughout the second half as Shawna Welshans booted the sixth goal at the 45-minute mark, followed by a goal from senior captain Natalie Green two minutes later. Fellow senior Keri Wright fired a winner to make it 8-0 at the 49-minute mark and then Page Little completed her 'hat trick' with two more goals to close out the match. It was the first time a Lady Trojan player had scored three goals in a varsity match since Sara Bell in 1998.

"We played very well. This team is getting better and will continue to improve each game out," Welshans added.

Webster hosts a strong Caldwell County squad Thursday night and then participates in the Christian County Invitational on Saturday.
