Eastview High School
Farmington High School
The Lightning were able to tally one up in the win column tonight against Farmington after a few scoreless draws.The first half saw the Lightning gain more and more possession but they struggled to find really good scoring opportunities on Farmington’s senior night.
The second half the Lightning played with more composure and were able to start breaking town the Toger defense. It was a great feeling as Senior, Haley Challgren hammered home her first goal of the season. The goal was assisted by Junior, Taylor McGahn. The game;s second goal came from a sliding Mariah Opheim, who finished off a lovely pass from Molly Beckman. Molly Beckman is the Lightning leader in points this season.
The defense was up to the task of defending against one of the leading scorers in the conference. Farmington was able to press late but the defense held and goalkeeper Claudia Pueschner recorded her third shut out in a row.
The Lightning have Senior Night on Thursday against Shakopee.
