Sep. 24—NEW ALBANY — Bella Scott’s hat trick led Class 2A No. 11 Silver Creek to a 9-0 win at Christian Academy on Thursday night.
Reese Turner added a pair of goals while Olivia Johnston, Lydia Wright, Carsyn Sidebottom and Lucie Kauffman had one apiece. Makayla Doherty dished out two assists while Bali Hawkins, Kaja Skoglund, Carley Troutman and Wright had one each.
“I was very happy with the way we played tonight. We challenged the girls to work on a few things before the game and they executed,” Silver Creek coach Patrick Anderson said. “We had a lot of different players involved in our scoring plays, which we’ll need as we get closer to sectionals. Bella Scott put herself in great position to score and she was rewarded with three goals off of nice assists from her teammates. We got some very good minutes for the girls on our bench and they were able to score some goals as well. We feel like we’re playing well, but there is always room for improvement. I hope we can continue to improve and keep playing well as we end the regular season next week.”
The Dragons (8-2-1) are scheduled to visit Scottsburg at 5:30 p.m. Monday.
