"There’s nothing dirty about it, there’s just a lot of banging going on so we’ll see how sore we are tomorrow."

They’re a great team,” said Foxboro coach Caitlin Annicelli. Unable to overcome the challenge, the Warriors fell 4-0 to the Tigers.

Kristina Simonson scored three goals and added an assist in the 5-0 victory on Senior Night.
Oliver Ames girls' soccer coach Britt Sellmayer couldn't have asked for a better Senior Night. And, he couldn't have asked for a better start for his seniors. Just 20 seconds into the game, senior midfielder Emily Grotz brought the ball up the sideline and found senior captain Kristina Simonson, who put the ball into the back of the net - her first of three goals on the night. The goal set the tone for the Tigers in the 5-0 Davenport Division victory over Stoughton Tuesday night at Muscato Stadium. "Emily Grotz worked really hard. She was up and down the side causing a lot of havok," Sellmayer said. "She had that assist 20 second into the game. Kristina [Simonson] got in the right spot and finished it."
