Top Division I girls soccer contenders Stuttgart, Ramstein and SHAPE dominated their respective regular-season finales on Saturday, setting the stage for what figures to be a highly competitive European tournament.

Stuttgart 11, Vilseck 0: Saturday at Vilseck, the reigning champions administered a beating to the host Falcons.

Alexa Smith scored five goals, Madison Barta scored three and Emily Smith paired two goals with two assists in the wire-to-wire rout, in which the Panthers totaled seven goals in the first half.

The Panthers won all of their regular-season games by multiple goals save for a season-opening tie with Ramstein on March 26.

Ramstein 12, International School of Brussels 0: Saturday at Ramstein, the Royals tuned up for their tournament run by overwhelming the visiting Raiders.

Ebony Madrid had three goals and three assists to lead a Ramstein offense that scored six goals in each half. Kendall Spohr added three goals in the rout.

The game was played with 10 players on each side due to ISB's shorthanded roster. Ramstein wraps up its regular season at 7-0-1.

SHAPE 7, Kaiserslautern 4: Saturday at Kaiserslautern, Spartan freshman Sunniva Leivdal scored four goals and added an assist to lead her team to an impressive divisional victory.

Begona Rodriguez Bravo added three assists for the Spartans. Kaiserslautern's Bethany Salas had two goals and an assist to lead the resistance.

The game adds a signature victory to the record of upstart SHAPE, which earned most of its five victories against lower-division northern opponents. The Spartans' only loss of the season came in a 3-1 setback against Ramstein on April 30.

Hohenfels 4, Ansbach 2: Friday at Hohenfels, the Tigers won in a game that was canceled after halftime due to inclement weather.

Hohenfels star Amelia Heath scored three goals to overwhelm the Division III Cougars. Miliannie Comas-Ramos added a goal and Kaylee Weinzetl had an assist for the defending Division II European champions.

Black Forest Academy 4, Bitburg 2: Saturday at Kandern, Germany, the Falcons picked up the Division II victory in a game shortened to 30-minute halves by the weather conditions.

Anna Kragt scored three goals and Kaitlyn Richter had a goal and an assist for BFA, whose only loss of the regular season came against reigning Division I champion Stuttgart. The Falcons went 5-0 against Division II opposition.

Naples 9, Florence 0: Saturday at Naples, the Wildcats had no trouble taking down the overmatched Boars.

Katherine Abresch scored twice to lead a contingent of eight Naples goal scorers. Victoria Sasse and Micayla Feltner had a goal and an assist apiece.

AFNORTH 4, Baumholder 0: Saturday at Brunssum, Netherlands, another all-around outstanding effort gave the Lions a third straight shutout win.

Caitlyn Helwig and Caitlin Fenton scored two goals apiece and each added an assist, while Sophia Munoz dished out two assists.

AFNORTH ends its season on a six-game streak without a loss, with its only setback coming in its season opener against Division I SHAPE.
