Sinnott's hat trick lifts Wauconda
Megan Sinnott scored a hat trick and added an assist, and Wauconda's girls soccer team scored five times in the second half in shutting out visiting Woodstock North 6-0 in nonconference action Saturday.
Morgan Lung scored a pair of goals and had an assist for the Bulldogs (2-0-1), and Kayla Llewellyn tallied a goal as well. Olivia Kuch and Belle Johnson contributed assists, while Mackenzie Arden earned the shutout in net.
"In the first half, we were struggling with our quality in the final third," Wauconda coach Beau Shogren said. "We made some good combinations and stayed connected, but we were consistently one pass away from a goal. In the second half, our girls came out firing on all cylinders and scored three quick goals, breaking the game open. Morgan Lung and Megan Sinnott really had a good understanding of each other today and created some wonderful scoring opportunities."
Grant 4, Johnsburg 0: Sophomore forward Addy Karpilovsky scored twice, senior Arianna Davis earned the shutout in goal, and the Bulldogs won the nonconference match for their first win of the season.
Freshman midfielder Taylor Fruehling added a goal and an assist, sophomore forward Nicole Stigler also scored, and sophomore midfielder Paige Allen contributed an assist for Grant (1-1), which led 1-0 at halftime. Allen made 6 saves.
"I was really proud of the group for bouncing back from our game on Tuesday (10-0 loss to Crystal Lake Central)," Grant coach Olivia Jansen said. "We played great team soccer from back to front. Our defense was solid, and we did a much better job of looking to connect out of the back. Nicole Stigler played outstanding for us up top and worked well with Addy and Taylor. This win is a big step forward for us, and I can't wait to see how we build off it at our games on Monday (home vs. Harvard) and Tuesday (at McHenry)."
Grayslake North 2, Jacobs 1: An early goal and a late goal gave the Knights their first win of the season in the nonconference match against what coach Adam DeCaluwe called "a tough Jacobs team."
Senior Katelyn Dameron scored early for Grayslake North (1-2). She played a ball into the box, where senior Lauren Hansen gathered it and took a touch before placing a shot into the back of the net.
Jacobs scored about halfway through the second half off a corner kick to tie the game at 1-1. But the Knights found the game-winner with just under six minutes to go, as freshman Emily Hansen scored off a pass from senior Jordyn Gerdes.
Emily Dunne had 4 saves in goal for Grayslake North.
Lake Forest 3, Lakes 0: Lakes goalie Taylor Primack made 8 saves, as the Eagles lost the nonconference match.
Lake Forest scored about 10 minutes into the game and led 2-0 at halftime.
"Today's game was an improvement for the Eagles offensively, as there was some very good chances to score in the second half," coach Kevin Kullby said after his Eagles fell to 0-2. "But the Scouts were good to finish when they could."
