The North Putnam girls' varsity soccer team defeated South Vermillion Wednesday, 6-2, ending the regular season on a positive note.
"It was a nice way to end the regular season," North Putnam coach Scott Spencer said.
The Cougars were led by Sheila Diebold scoring three goals in the match. Chelsea Greene had two goals, while Brook Miller added another. Miller also had three assists in the match.
Spencer was pleased with the Cougars' performance, particularly in the second half.
"We played the first half like we had just spent an hour on the bus," he said. "We weren't really focused on the game. The second half was a different story."
North Putnam outscored South Vermillion, 3-0, in the second half. The Cougars had 23 shots on goal, while South Vermillion only managed eight. Goalkeeper Ashley Finchum had six saves, including a penalty kick save in the first half.
The win comes as the sectional approaches Tuesday at Avon. The Cougars face Danville Tuesday at 5 p.m. North Putnam finished the season 9-6-1 and 2-2 in the conference.
