A one-two punch carried the Ozaukee girls’ soccer team to a 4-1 win over Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah in a Central Lakeshore Conference match April 26.
Senior Brooke Schueller and sophomore Natalie Clark each had two goals for the Warriors, who grabbed an early lead and never trailed.
After Schueller scored with an assist from Clark in the eighth minute, Clark made it 2-0 with a goal in the 23rd minute.
In the second half, Clark and Schueller found the net at 58 and 62 minutes, respectively.
“Brooke played a phenomenal game. I was very pleased with her runs off the ball and her ability to create opportunities,” Ozaukee coach Eric Liebergen said.
Although the win was the Warriors’ third straight in CLC play and improved them to 4-1 in league games and 6-4 overall, it didn’t come easily.
“It proved to be a physical challenge for much of the game,” Liebergen said.
“Our midfield set up a lot of our breakaways with timely passes.”
Ozaukee 3, Random Lake 0
Bridget Hoffmann scored twice in the Warriors’ conference home win April 24.
After Clark gave Ozaukee a 1-0 lead in the fifth minute, Hoffmann added goals in the 20th and 61st minutes. The final score was assisted by Ashley Preisler.
Goalkeeper Kaylee Klopp had three saves to help preserve the shutout.
This week, the Warriors faced Cedar Grove-Belgium on Monday (see related story) and will play a 4:30 p.m. match at Howards Grove on Thursday.
On May 8, Ozaukee will host Sheboygan Lutheran/Kohler at 4:30 p.m.
