Eastview High School
The Eastview Lightning capped a wonderful trip to Duluth with a 2-0 victory over the Duluth Greyhounds. After a round of mini golf and a trip to the Lighthouse in Canal Park the Lightning were able to play some wonderful soccer. The Lightning controlled play and gave up very few shots and only one corner kick thanks the outstanding defense by Sally Nelson, Mary Keating, Holly Sodomka and Emma Mortenson.
Both Lighting goals came off of corner kicks. The first one was a beautiful ball in by Molly Beckman that was headed in by Lauren Glas. The second goal of the game came from a corner by Senior Haley Ford. That corner kick was finished off by Senior, Sally Nelson. This game marked the third shut out in a row by Claudia Pueschner. The game’s final twenty minutes Junior, goalkeeper Olivia Johnson faced two shots but she was more than up the challenge and kept Duluth off of the scoreboard.
The Lightning resume conference play on Tuesday when they take on the Eagan Wildcats at 5:00.
