Two hat tricks key Pats' winOctober 6, 2017
A pair of girls soccer blowouts Thursday at the Class 2A Heritage Hills Sectional created a state-ranked championship matchup for this weekend.
Behind hat tricks from Kerragan Mulzer and Lydia Benet, No. 20 Heritage Hills posted a 9-0 win over Evansville Bosse in a semifinal.
Also tallying goals for the Patriots (12-4) were Xiana Scott, Samantha Gries and Kiersten Schuler, as Ali Wade added an assist.
Standing in the way of a sectional title for Heritage Hills is No. 1 Evansville Memorial, which dumped Boonville 9-0 on Thursday. The Patriots and Tigers (14-4) will square off Saturday for the crown.
The rest of Thursday’s best in local prep sports:
Jeep girls fall short: Jada Fromme tallied a second-half goal, but Northeast Dubois girls soccer saw its season come to an end in a 6-1 loss to Class 1A No. 5 Vincennes Rivet. The Jeeps’ defeat in a Forest Park Sectional semifinal settled their record at 5-12 for the year.
Wildcats win league: Maddie Edwards posted 10 kills, Natalie Wigand contributed 12 assists and Meredith Hilgefort added 16 digs as Jasper volleyball secured the Big Eight Conference title with a three-set sweep of host Boonville. The Wildcats (23-10, 6-0) defeated the Pioneers 25-21, 25-11, 25-18, receiving additional support in Avery Bell’s six blocks and Hilgefort’s four aces. The conference crowning was Jasper’s 20th all-time and fourth in the last seven seasons.
