Rolla Bulldogs – 10
Hillcrest Hornets – 0
A tough challenge for the Northside Springfield squad, as they traveled to Rolla on Wednesday to face the District 10 favorites in a game delayed one day due to field conditions. The game ended on Ashley Kerr’s goal when she followed Olivia Cox’s shot from the top of the box. Jillian Gerkey rejected the initial shot with her diving save but Ashley lifted it over the prone keeper from just outside the six yard box. The Hornets never backed off and made several trips into the Bulldogs box during my period at the game (2nd half) but don’t have as sophisticated an attack and were shutout.
For the Lady Bulldogs both Jaclyn Standfast and Ashley Kerr had hat tricks, with three goals each. Olivia Cox tallied two goals and Emily Spooner and Caitlin McFarland each added one. Cox and Kerr each had two assists with Kim Carter and Spooner scoring one each.
I took some time afterwards to chat with a pair of senior co-captains for the Bulldogs, checking in on their results so far this season and what the teams goals are. Here are Kim Carter and Ashley Kerr.
