The Columbus North girls’ soccer team showed their depth in a 6-0 victory against the Lawrence North on Monday night at the Wigh Soccer Complex.
The Bull Dogs (6-1) scored early and never slowed down. Columbus North struck first when senior Gabby Sims scored off an assist from Claire Chambers four minutes into the game.
“We have great team chemistry,” Sims said. “We trust our teammates’ effort and know where each other are on the field.”
The intensity and experience of the Bull Dogs showed through the first half as they kept the pressure on the Bears (0-6). North was rarely challenged, and Lawrence Central very rarely was able to push the ball across midfield.
“We expect our girls to come out, play hard and execute our game plan,” North coach Derek Stewart said. “We have a good mix of players and a deeper bench this year than last year. We have greater flexibility moving players around.”
Freshman Addy Lang led Columbus North with two goals, both in the first half.
“We worked really well together,” Lang said.
At the end of the first half, the Bulldogs had pulled out to a 4-0 lead, including a goal by Katie Carlson at the 1:07 mark. Micah Shoaf (26:27) and Kenadee Carlson (23:15) added the final two goals in the second half.
The Bull Dogs’ aggressive play had the Bears out of position on defense the entire game. Lawrence Central’s starting goalkeeper Emily Vollmer played strong with 18 saves in the box.
North will host Bloomington North on Wednesday at 6 p.m.
The Bull Dogs’ junior varsity won 8-0.
