West defeats East in girls soccer


West goalie Katie Lauer agreed: “We've gelled a lot as a team. We're much better defensively than we were at the start of the year. We moved Sarah (Buryska) back and that's helped solidify our D.”

Lauer and her counterpart, Emily Flaherty, each faced eight shots on goal. The teams were tied 1-1 at the half before Abdo scored at the 53:14 mark with a wide-open shot from the top of the box. Burandt capped the scoring with a close-in score with just 1:07 left in the game.

“We had some people missing but I liked the way some of the other girls stepped up for us today,” East coach Akram Osman said. “I was very encouraged by some of the things I saw.”

The Cougars (5-6, 2-4) were without the services of Sydney Halbur and Amanda Broman who are nursing concussions They were also without leading scorer Rebekah Kolstad who had a previous hockey commitment.

Lizzy Vetter scored the lone goal for East with an assist from Bailey Kanstrup.

“It was a good game, Osman said. “We look forward to playing them again.”
