Northside’s girls, in improving to 7-5-0 – remaining 3-1 in the Area as it was a non-region contest – led 6-0 at the half.
Sierra Sawyer and Taylor Poole each scored three goals and Danielle Chambers one. Zayna Al-Husein and Taylor Poole had two assists each.
“I think, this game I was most impressed with two of our offensive players, Sierra Sawyer and Taylor Poole,” said Head Coach Ryan Burkhart. “They played very aggressive, which is something we have been working on and improving on all season. When they both play as well as they did today, and they are both doing it at the same time, they make our team look dangerous.
He added that he and Coach Billy Walter were “very happy” with the outcome, especially considering the fact they hadn’t played a game in more than two weeks; due to spring break, et cetera.
“I was worried about the layoff,” Burkhart said. “I was worried we’d be a little rusty. But within the first 30 seconds, we drove down the field and had a quality shot on goal.
“The offense did a lot of good things and continued to improve as the season has gone on. And the defense did what the defense does almost every game, playing consistently strong.”
The Eagles also won making two of their last three games victories. They beat the Greyhounds, also with a shutout, 5-0 and improved to 3-8-0 overall (remaining 0-4-0 in the Area).
