If their opponents were hoping for an upset, they didn’t get one.
The ninth-ranked Park girls soccer team didn’t let up against a pair of inferior opponents last week, beating Forest Lake 3-0 and St. Cloud Tech 6-0 to remain undefeated on the year. The Wolfpack is now 8-0-1 in 2012.
Park’s win over Forest Lake kept the Wolfpack tied with White Bear Lake for first place in the Suburban East Conference with a perfect 3-0 record. Woodbury, which has won the past 10 SEC championship titles, is 1-1-1 in the SEC after tying Cretin-Derham Hall last week.
Park junior attacker Temi Ogunrinde scored two goals in the win over Forest Lake (3-5-1; 1-2 SEC). Along with notching a goal and an assist against St. Cloud Tech, Ogunrinde now has a team-best nine points off of a team-high eight goals and one assist.
Also, against the Rangers, junior midfielder Alyssa Troje had a goal and an assist and sophomore attacker Maddie Castro and senior defender Nikki Schnegelberger tallied assists. In addition, sophomore goalie Emily Lange made four saves to earn the shutout. Including the shutout against St. Cloud Tech, Lange now has six shutouts and a Goals Against Average of 0.33 per game.
Five different players scored for Park in the blowout win over St. Cloud Tech (1-7). Sophomore defender Annie Williams led the way with two goals while her twin sister Carlie Williams notched a goal and three assists. Ogunrinde, sophomore defender Lindsay Kothe and junior midfielder Sydney Wylie also each scored goals for the Wolfpack in the win.
On the year, Carlie Williams is second on the team in scoring with eight points on four goals and four assists. Castro is third with six points on three goals and three assists.
Park played host to Stillwater (4-3-1; 2-1 SEC) on Tuesday, after the Bulletin went to press. Next, the Wolfpack will play the first of its five final games of the year – all in the SEC – when the team travels to Roseville (6-2; 2-1 SEC) on Thursday.
