RAMSTEIN AIR BASE, Germany — All-Europe midfielder Collette Bannister scored two goals and added an assist Friday as the Ramstein Lady Royals clinched the Division I regular-season soccer crown with a 7-0 mercy-rule victory over the Kaiserslautern Lady Raiders.

Mari Shakir also scored twice for the Lady Royals, who ran their D-1 mark to 5-0 with one game remaining. After an off week next Saturday, Ramstein, which is 6-0 overall after its fifth shutout of the season, will close its regular season by hosting Würzburg on May 15.

“Ramstein’s entire defense played outstandingly and kept K-town’s shots on goal to only one,” Ramstein coach Bill Belmear said.

Belmear noted that Kaiserslautern’s Joy and Anna Hrushka, along with teammate Allyson Bunch, played well in trying to defuse Ramstein’s attack.

Heather Harvey, Jayci Cachuela and Susie Fluker also added goals for Ramstein, which got assists from Cachuela and Kate Fluker.

In other girls’ soccer games Saturday:

Patch stays unbeaten

VILSECK, Germany — The Panthers, winners of every European Division II championship since the league began playing its own tournament in 2000, rode goals from Kylie Marchant and Ashlee McConnell to a 2-0 victory over the Vilseck Falcons.

Patch’s fourth shutout in five games boosted its record to 5-0 in league play going into its final two regular-season games.

Goalkeeper Heather Hall was called upon for just three saves as the Patch defenders frustrated the Vilseck attack.

Goalie Becky Linka made 14 stops for Vilseck (1-4).

Hanau remains alive

HANAU, Germany — The Panthers got three goals from All-Europe sophomore striker Kyri Bye-Nagel to keep alive their faint D-2 conference championship hopes in a 4-2 victory over visiting Bitburg.

Hanau (3-1-1) has 10 points with two games to play. Patch (5-0), which leads the standings with 15 points, would need to lose its final two games, including a May 15 home game against Hanau, for the Panthers to have any chance at the conference title.

Otterstedt lifts Baumholder

BAUMHOLDER, Germany — Tennis star Katie Otterstedt scored three goals as the Lady Bucs grabbed a 4-1 victory over the visiting Alconbury Dragons.

Baumholder improved its overall mark to 2-3. Alconbury, in its first season of girls’ soccer, is 1-3-1.

Alconbury plays next Saturday at Brussels to determine which team will finish second to III-North league champion Menwith Hill. Menwith Hill improved its league record to 3-1 and clinched the title when Brussels was forced to forfeit its game Saturday.

Hohenfels downs Giessen

GIESSEN, Germany — Kelsey Axon, Tiara Waltz and Whitney Clemmons provided the scoring as the Tigers topped the Giessen Griffins 3-1.

The Tigers’ III-South record improved to 2-1 going into their final game of the regular season at home next Saturday against Baumholder (1-2). Giessen is 0-2-1 in the league and hosts Ansbach next Saturday.
