Cougars Blast Oregon-Davis

WINONA LAKE – Jessi Calizo scored for Lakeland Christian in the fourth minute of the match, and the Cougars never looked back in a 10-0 thrashing of visiting Oregon Davis in a non-conference girls soccer match Friday night.

Calizo finished with a hat trick, and a pair of assists. The Cougars led 7-0 at intermission and cruised from there as Oregon Davis became fatigued. Finely Hobbs, normally a goalkeeper, got her first two career goals, with single goals by Liza Schmitt, Keely Bauer, Hannah Starette and Avery Hobbs.

“Hard to get upset with an offensive explosion like that,” said cougar head coach Nat Raber. “I was happy that nine of the 10 goals came on an assist and very happy to see Jessi get on the scores sheet scoring some goals.  Very happy for Hannah, who got her first career goal as did Julia and Finely.  Still need some work on our passing but the team played well.”

Lakeland Christian takes a 3-1 record into Thursday’s match, when Wawasee will visit at 5:30 p.m.
