Saturday, September 22, 2012

The North Putnam girls' soccer team defeated West Vigo 9-0 on Senior Night Thursday.

Cayla Kientz scored two goals for the Cougars, with Brooke Matthews, Ally Birchman, Jessalyn Harrington, Louise Rasmussen, Rebecca Booth, Autumn Wolf and Haven Trent adding a goal each.

One play that caught North Putnam head coach Willie Gaskins' eye was Rasmussen's direct kick. Gaskins noted the kick started wide of the goal, and as the keeper stopped and watched, curled back and found the back of the net for her first goal of the season.

After building a 5-0 lead at the half, Gaskins flip-flopped his team, putting the defenders up from to lead the charge.
