The Women's Soccer team extended its winning streak to four by beating Trinity Baptist 7-1 at home Thursday night.
Panther Forward Kaia King, who scored twice on Tuesday, struck twice in the first half, her first coming 11 minutes into the game with an assist from Kirsten Captino, and her second coming 10 minutes later. Tonight's performance puts her at four goals in the last two games, and six goals this season.
King's goals were all the points in the first half, and the Panthers took a two-goal lead going into halftime.
LC took control in the second half, with Brianna Suarez scoring two early goals to push the Panther lead to four. Twelve minutes later, Lauren Willamson scored on a King assist to push the lead to five. While Trinity Baptist scored with 19 minutes to go, LC fired right back, with Madison Dekker and Erika Bower goals less than 3 minutes later, giving the Panthers a 7-1 lead that held until the final whistle.
"The team played really well tonight," said Head Coach Kennet Fosuhene. "We made a lot of changes and with that, it takes a while for the rhythm to get going.
"I'm really proud of the ladies. With the players we have and the team chemistry, I am feeling good heading into conference play!"
The Panthers (4-1-1-) dominated possession during the game, outshooting Trinity Baptist 31-7 and putting 17 shots on goal, while Trinity Baptist only put up four. LC also set themselves up with chances, having nine corner kicks to Trinity's two.
Panther goalkeeper Rian May had a spectacular debut, starting her first game for the Panthers this season by collecting three saves and her first career win.
LaGrange will start conference play Saturday on the road against Covenant College to wrap up a busy week in Panther Women's Soccer.
