Devyn Carson had a goal and three assists, Connar Wilson, Grant McCalister and Kaleb Elifritz each had a goal and Kyler Bradley and Jakob Brunke both had an assist in the win. Ethan Remy made 10 saves in goal to post the shutout as Miami East outshot Graham 28-10.

“We played with a lot of intensity and tenacity for the whole game,” Miami East coach Adam Bell said. “We had pretty good field vision for most of the night, which created a lot of opportunities for shots on goal. My hat goes off to Graham’s keeper, too — he made 22 saves and definitely made my front line sing for its supper tonight.”

Lady Vikings

blank Falcons

ST. PARIS — Miami East girls soccer was back in action on Monday against Graham.

The Vikings were able to post a second consecutive shutout with a 2-0 win.

East got on the board with 6 minutes to go until halftime when Haley Demmitt one-touched in a Danielle Mannier corner kick. It was 40 minutes later before Emily Holicki juked to keeper for an open netter off of a long ball over the top from Morgan Haney.

“That was Demmitt’s first varsity goal and Em’s first of the season, so it was nice to break the ice for them,” Miami East coach Emalie Carson said. “We had to be extremely patient tonight, for a lot of reasons. They packed it in tight, so shots were always bouncing off someone. And the field is so narrow, you couldn’t work it out and in. But we took advantage of a couple of opportunities and gutted it out.”

Katie Bodenmiller and Emma Linn combined in the goal for 6 saves and the shutout.

East is now 2-0 and will host Northwestern tonight.
