GIRLS SOCCER: Challengers keep rolling along in rout
Hannah Krug scored two goals to lead Cascade Christian to another dominant victory in nonleague play, 6-0 over Douglas in girls soccer Saturday at U.S. Cellular Community Park.
The Challengers (3-0), who led 4-0 after 13 minutes, have outscored the opposition 18-0.
Krug scored in the 11th and 31st minutes, getting assists from Katie Erno and Grace Melvin, respectively.
Bryton Plankenhorn opened the onslaught in the fifth, assisted by Bryonie Jordaan, and Erno made a direct shot on a corner kick five minutes later.
The right-footed Melvin went left-footed for a goal in the 13th, with an assist from Jordaan.
Braelyn Day, whose strong all-around play helped limit Douglas to no shots, scored the final goal in the 79th.
SUMMIT 3, NORTH MEDFORD 0: North Medford was a little lethargic after scoring a narrow win over Bend one night prior and Summit made the Black Tornado pay in nonconference soccer.
Junior Taylor Denn had the top scoring opportunity for host North Medford (2-1) but her second-half effort was pulled just wide of the goal.
Summit improved to 3-1 with the shutout.
BEND 2, SOUTH MEDFORD 0: Bend tallied a goal in each half of the nonconference game at South Medford.
The Lava Bears (3-2) got a through ball and scored in the 10th minute, then tallied in the 50th on a cross and finish to the far post.
South Medford dropped to 0-3-1.
ASHLAND 7, NORTH BEND 1: At Ashland, senior Mary Wilson and freshman Ini Hammond each notched two goals and two assists to lead Ashland to the Midwestern League victory.
Wilson scored in the 13th and 49th minutes, while Hammond tallied in the 51st and 68th minutes for the Grizzlies (3-0-1, 1-0 MWL).
Mya Holzshu scored in the seventh minute and was largely responsible for a 78th minute goal when her shot was deflected in by North Bend (4-1, 0-1) for an own goal.
Kendra Caruso also scored in the 45th minute for Ashland.
CRATER 1, SPRINGFIELD 1: At Springfield, Montana Smith scored her third goal of the season for Crater, and Comets goalie Teya Amidei was solid in the Midwestern League opener.
Springfield scored in the sixth minute, then Smith tallied in the 20th after Allison Waters played the ball to her.
Crater’s second straight draw moved it to 3-0-2 overall.
Amidei made several fine plays and hung in despite taking a hard shot to the face.
THURSTON 10, EAGLE POINT 0: At Springfield, Thurston proved too much in dropping Eagle Point to 0-6 overall and 0-1 in Midwestern League play.
The Colts remained unbeaten at 2-0-1.
