The Thoroughbreds scored four goals in the first half and went on to defeat the Lady Cardinals 6-1.
Sam Benzel paced NewCath’s offense with three goals, while Christina Seibert added two. Benzel scored her goals at 28:47, 30:58 and 55:05.¿ Seibert’s scores came at 5:03 and 49:37, while McKayla Seibert connected on a score at the 12:30 mark of the first half.
Clark coach Jessica Laswell was disappointed in her team’s effort.
“They were a good team, moved well, had a better touch than us, but they weren't (five goals) better than us,” she said. “We're having a hard time making adjustments. We seem to have the same problems over and over and have to figure out how to fix them somehow. If we don't start working as a team and being more cohesive and responsive to each other, we'll continue to look the same, and being static isn’t going to get us anywhere.”
Clark’s Courtney White prevented the shutout when she scored at 45:31 on an assist from teammate Hayley Thornberry.
Clark (4-8) managed just seven shots on goal, while NewCath (10-3-1) had 14 scoring attempts.
Clark goal keeper Cathryn Banker had five saves, while Erin Ackerson had three for the guests.
Prior to the contest, the team presented Sutherland’s mother Elly with mums in memory of her late daughter.
Next game: Tonight, 7 p.m. at Montgomery County.
