LOURDES SHUTS OUT LANCERS
La CRESCENT — Rochester Lourdes flexed its muscles against one of its top rivals in Section 1A girls soccer on Saturday.
The Eagles shut out homestanding La Crescent 3-0, with two goals from Amelia Gossman and one from Emma Schmitz.
"This win was a great team win for us," Lourdes coach Sarah Groven said. "Our section has some solid teams and the Lancers have always been a tough team. We came out strong in the first half and had two goals right away. We settled a bit after that, but LaCrescent challenged us with their speed and even though we had some solid chances, their goal keeper was very strong."
Lourdes led 2-0 at halftime, then added an insurance goal in the second half. Groven said Allison Smith, Grace Downs and Lizzie Leitzen all played strong games, as did Gossman.
Lourdes, which improved to 4-0-1, plays at Lake City on Thursday.

LAKEVILLE — Rochester Century had a difficult challenge Saturday and couldn't generate any offense against a good Lakeville North team in a 6-0 non-conference girls soccer loss.
"It was a rough day we were missing several starting players due to injuries," Century coach Karen LaDue said, "especially on defense. We lost two more during the game and struggled the whole way as a team. We know we just have to find a way to play better until we can recover from these injuries."
