KANELAND—With a mostly new lineup, one could be wary of how the offensive skills would come together for the KHS soccer group.
In two games this week, the Lady Knights lost to visiting Rosary in a regional rematch, but earned a shutout win over Northern Illinois Big XII crossover foe Ottawa.
After the March 23 loss and the Thursday win, KHS sees its record sit at 2-2 (1-1 NIB-12).
After getting shut out 4-0 in temperatures struggling to hit 35 on the thermometer, Kaneland rallied to hand the Ottawa Lady Pirtates a 6-0 drubbing on Thursday in Maple Park.
Senior leader Emily Heimerdinger got the Lady Knights on the board first with a goal after being fed by Jessica Coia. That gave Kaneland a 1-0 lead with 10:43 remaining in the first half.
Anne Marie Giese scored the first second-half goal with 17:11 to go, giving KHS a 2-0 edge.
Taylor White made the most of her scoring opportunity and found the net with 13:38 to play for a 3-0 edge.
Heimerdinger, Katie Taylor and Sophie Blank each scored within the last 10:46 to take the win over their West Division foe.
Ahead for KHS is a Monday, April 4 clash at Indian Creek.
