Lady Knights Take Down Northwestern 5-1
August 27, 2013Archbishop Alter High School
The Alter Lady Knights moved to 3-0 with a 5-1 win over Northwestern Monday night. Senior Katie Grunder and Junior Kyly Borton provided the scoring punch for the Knights as they each had two goals and two assists in the first half to take a 4-0 lead. Alter’s defense and junior goalkeeper Abby Helm held a pesky and physical Northwestern team scoreless in the first half.
Northwestern scored once in the second half, but the Knights responded as Borton completed the hat trick with a left footer into the corner of the net. Junior Gabby Ricard got the assist. The Knights will face a tough test on Thursday August 29th as they host the Division 3 State Champion Bishop Fenwick Lady Falcons at 7:00 pm.
