Junior Kelly Meyer scored twice, as Grayslake North's girls soccer team opened its season with a 5-0 win over Round Lake on Tuesday.

It was a scoreless game until sophomore Maggie Fish picked up a loose ball and slotted it across to Meyer, who redirected the ball into the Round Lake net with about five minutes left in the opening half.

Junior Mallori Hamelton and sophomores Kayla Hartigan and Teagan Johnson also scored for Grayslake North, which scored four times in the second half. Sophomore Jocelyn Rodriguez had a pair of assists, while Hartigan and freshman Kendall Buchman assisted on tallies as well.

Knights coach Adam DeCaluwe noted the performances of Meyer, Hartigan, Rodriguez and junior Kendall Detweiler.

"We are very satisfied with the way the girls performed," DeCaluwe said. "While this was only the second time our girls have been able to get outside due to the weather, we really seemed to show a lot of positive signs of what we can become."

Knights sophomore keeper Megan Davis made 2 saves in earning the shutout.

Mundelein 4, Lake Park 0: Christy Nambo scored twice for the visiting Mustangs, who led the nonconference match 3-0 at halftime.

Mundelein (3-0-1) also received goals from Megan Carroll and Kaila Cancelli. Jasmine Ader and Michaela Valin had assists, and keeper Brooke Dennis made 3 saves.

Carmel 6, Prairie Ridge 1: Elizabeth Bream scored twice for the Corsairs, who followed up their 10-0 win over Bishop McNamara on Monday with another dominating performance.

Meegan Johnston, Claire Ogrinc, Sadie Jung and Annie DiVenere also scored for Carmel (2-0).
