Kayla Schrubb scored nine minutes into the game on an assist from Morgen Grunkemeyer and it remained 1-0 at halftime.

Lady Vikings

even record

CASSTOWN — The Miami East girls soccer team evened its record with a 7-1 win over Graham Monday night.

“Offensively, we were definitely on tonight,” Miami East coach Lil Carson said. “We really didn’t have that many shots, but everything was falling for us. Em (Emily Holicki) did an excellent job keeping her composure and finishing, rather than just

shooting. It’s great to see that out of her. We were kind of down after Saturday’s loss, so this was definitely good for us.”

Miami East wasted no time getting started in the season home opener. Just 2:29 into the game, Cheyenne Smith crossed one into the box that Renee DeFord slipped past the keeper.

A little over four minutes later, Emily Holicki found the net after Riann Kingrey split the defenders for a through ball. Holicki notched her second goal of the night just a minute later when she carried in a long punt from keeper Katie


East’sfourth goal game with 16 minutes left until the break. Madeline Davis sent a ball out wide to Renee DeFord. DeFord

took the shot from long range and it hit the cross bar and bounced down behind the line.

Holicki found the net for the third time 30 seconds later off a Hailey Weaver free kick from the

midfield. Ashley Hahn had the assist for Holicki’s fourth goal of the night with just over nine minutes remaining until the

break. Jessica Barlage finished off the scoring the first half as she shot one from distance that slipped under the keeper, Haley Demmitt had the assist.

The second half, Kingrey got a goal of her own as she followed in a cross from DeFord that the keeper misplayed. Olivia Edgell finished off the scoring for the Vikings on a Davis assist.

Madison Roop scored for Graham with three minutes remaining.

East keeper Katie Bodenmiller had 10 saves.
