Patch bounces back to rout Wiesbaden
The DODDS-Europe defending Division I girls soccer champion Patch Panthers shook off Friday's loss at rival Ramstein with an impressive 6-0 shutout of the Wiesbaden Warriors on Saturday.
The Panthers, a day removed from a 4-3 loss to Ramstein in a rematch of last year's European title game, put away the Warriors early. The Patch lead was already 4-0 by halftime, and the reigning champs cruised to their first divisional victory of the season.
Claire Chiarotti scored twice and Kelsey Ortwein and Danielle Mannier added a goal and an assist apiece to lead the Panther offense.
The loss was the first of the season for Wiesbaden, which played Vilseck to a 3-3 tie on Friday.
Patch travels to Hohenfels next weekend, while Wiesbaden visits another Division I rival in Kaiserslautern.
Kaiserslautern 8, Vilseck 2: Saturday at Kaiserslautern, the host Raiders handled the Falcons to post their first victory of the year.
Isabela Lowry and Arianna Osmar scored two goals each and Osmar added an assist to lead the balanced Raider offense.
Amelia Tugman scored a Falcon goal and assisted on the other.
The win is the high point to date for the Raiders, a Division I title hopeful. Kaiserslautern started its season with a tie and a loss, playing Baumholder to a 4-4 draw and falling to Ramstein 1-0 just before spring break.
The Raiders will look to build a winning streak Saturday against Wiesbaden; Vilseck's quest for its first win of the season gets no easier in its next game, a May 3 date with Patch.
Lakenheath 9, Menwith Hill 0: Saturday at Menwith Hill, the Lancers sprinted out to an 8-0 halftime lead and cruised to the win.
Joleena Dailey scored three goals, Briana Romesha scored twice and assisted once and Kayla Hutchins scored a goal and notched two assists.
The Lancers stayed undefeated with the win. They'll place that record on the line against Brussels on Saturday.
Baumholder 2, Ansbach 0: Friday at Baumholder, the Bucs scored two second-half goals to edge the visiting Cougars.
Makenzie Ehrhardt assisted Mariah Rogers and Mikayla Kennell assisted Ehrhardt for the two Baumholder goals. The scores spoiled an otherwise standout effort for Ansbach goalkeeper Jahkya Smith, who made 10 saves.
The win was the second in a row for the Bucs, who beat Bitburg 7-0 in their last game before spring break.
Hohenfels 4, Baumholder 1: Saturday at Baumholder, the visiting Tigers ended the Bucs' win streak with a second-half surge of their own.
Hohenfels scored three unanswered second-half goals to break open a game that was tied at one at the break. Hannah Watkins scored two goals and made an assist, while Dollie Harrison added a goal and assist.
Ehrhardt starred again for Baumholder, making five saves over a stint as goalkeeper and scoring once in her time in the field.
