HGHS improved to 5-1 in the CLC (6-2-1 overall). Cedar Grove, which led the league coming into the match, dropped to second place at 3-1 (5-2 overall).

Sophomore forward Brittany Schaller keyed the Tigers’ attack with two goals. Also scoring for HGHS were Kaitlynn Near on a penalty kick and Makenzie Schlafke. Near, Morgan Edge and Katie Guse had one assist each for the Tigers.

The Rockets’ goal came on a penalty kick by Haleigh Bares.

HGHS led 12-2 in shots on goal. Tiger goalie Olivia Stauss made one save. Rocket goalie Audrey Schlenvogt had seven saves.

“The girls closed out a game well tonight that they controlled for much of the 90 minutes,” said Tiger head coach Kasey Smith.

“Kaitlynn Near had a great game in the middle – constantly taking possession and showing up all over the field. After a long weekend of games [three in Saturday’s Sheboygan South Invitational], I was impressed to see how much energy she came out with just two days later.”

The Tigers placed second in Pool D with a 1-1-1 record. HGHS edged Baraboo, 1-0; lost to Sheboygan North, 2-0; and tied Milwaukee Lutheran, 1-1. North won Pool D with a 2-0-1 mark.

Near scored the game-winner versus Baraboo on a penalty kick with about four minutes left. Stauss made one save in the match. HGHS led 10-1 in shots on goal.

“I was happy with our play in this game. The 25-minute halves force you to be more aggressive,” said Smith.

Near kicked the Tigers’ goal in the Lutheran match, assisted by Malayna McDaniel. Stauss made one save.

“Overall, I was happy with our tournament play, especially our game versus Sheboygan North. Getting that game versus such a quality program is important to our growth,” said Smith.
