Girls Varsity Soccer
COLUMBUS, Ind. – Sophomore Caroline Hollenkamp scored three goals Saturday (Sept. 23) to key the Columbus North girls soccer team to a 7-0 victory over Perry Meridian at Richard Wigh Soccer Complex.
Juniors Tanner Johnson and Christy DeDomenic each added two goals for the Bull Dogs, who improved to 8-2-2 overall and closed Conference Indiana play at 4-2-1 in the makeup of a game rained on from Sept. 13. Junior Elise Whitley contributed two assists, and DeDomenic had one.
Sophomore Kaylyn Bates and Hollenkamp shared the shutout in goal for CN, which played without regular goalkeeper Liz Tynan. Bates played 62 minutes with one save, and Hollenkamp played 18 minutes with one save. Tynan, a senior, was absent because of a college visit that was planned when this was an open date.
Hollenkamp and Johnson set the tone for the game with respective unassisted goals in the third and sixth minutes. DeDomenic added a goal in the 29th minute, and Hollenkamp and Johnson made it 5-0 at intermission.
Hollenkamp completed her hat trick in the 50th minute, and DeDomenic scored for the second time in the 75th minute.
Columbus North put 16 shots on goal, and Falcons goalkeeper Riley Bradbury made nine saves.
