Rangers put up a 10-spot on the JeepsSeptember 17, 2019

DUBOIS — The Forest Park girls soccer team brought their feet and the fireworks Monday night as they lit up the scoreboard to the tune of six first half goals before adding another four in the second to blank out the Northeast Dubois Jeeps 10-0.
Rangers (6-3-1, 4-1) coach Brad Weyer is happy to see his girls come around and become the best version of themselves after they started the season losing three of their first four games. He felt that the Rangers suffered some bad breaks at the start of the season but he complimented the team’s resolve as they banded together through the rough times to come out with a six-game upswing on the other side.
“We just grinded through those first four games,” he said. “We changed our attacking mindset the last five, six games, which really has shown from a scoring perspective. I’m really pleased with the way we’re playing right now.”
Senior midfielder Denai Sicard led the charge with three goals, followed by senior midfielder Kenlee Gehlhausen and freshman forward Zoe Becher who each had a pair of scores. Senior midfielders Abby Eckert and Lauren Jahn along with sophomore forward Layla Weyer also found the back of the net for the Rangers.
“We felt like we finally connected as a team,” said Gehlhausen. “We hadn’t done that a lot this season. We played hard, went to every ball and that’s what got us the win.”
On the other side of the equation was Northeast Dubois (2-5, 2-1) who dropped their fourth game in a row with the loss. Jeeps coach Dylan Robling said that injuries have turned the season into a grind for the team, but he’s hoping their weeklong break ahead of their next game against North Harrison can serve as a can of bounce back period the girls can use to right the ship.
“We started off with a really good win,” he said. “We’re growing but it’s a very slow trend. We have a week before another game, so hopefully we get through some of these things that we’ve been missing.”
