The Alter Lady Knights soccer team captured their third straight District Championship under head coach Javier Iriart with a 7-1 defeat of Springfield Shawnee on Thursday night at Northmont Stadium. Senior Katie Grunder got the Knights on the board first with a goal assisted by Junior Danielle Ruffolo.
The goals then started pouring in during the first half as Ruffolo, Junior Kyly Borton and Senior Caroline Kernan each scored while Senior Avalee Hagerty scored two goals. Junior Megan Foster assisted on one of Hagerty’s goals and Sophomore Emily Trick and Ruffolo combined on the assist to Kernan. Junior Emma Bockrath also registered an assist in the first half as the Knights took a 6-0 lead into the break.
The final goal came in the second half on a Borton to Bockrath combination and the Knights cruised to the victory with a nice team effort to collect their District Championship medals. The Knights next will play in the Regional Semifinals against McNicholas on Tuesday October 29th at 7:00 at Centerville Stadium. Come out to cheer on the Lady Knights!
