The Knights came out strong against Oakwood and got on the board quickly as Freshman Libby Bazelak got to the ball and finished on a nice corner kick by Senior Katie Grunder within the first few minutes of the game. Senior Avalee Hagerty scored the next two goals on assists from Juniors Danielle Ruffolo and Kyly Borton. Junior Goalkeeper Abby Helm, assisted by Freshman Goalkeeper Sarah Cady, recorded a shutout for the Knights. The Knights limited the Oakwood attack all night and had several other great scoring opportunities.
Alter improved to 13-5 on the season as they prepare for a good Springfield Shawnee team with a record of 13-3-2. Come out to support the Knights this Thursday!
