Tonawanda girls' soccer stays unbeaten in ECIC

Tonawanda News — Goals were aplenty for Tonawanda’s girls soccer team, as they defeated the Lackawanna Steelers 7-0.

The Warriors (8-2, 7-0 ECIC), who were coming off of a big win over Holland, were on a high going into their contest with the Steelers (0-7), according to head coach Julie Johnson.

“The win over Holland was our first against them in five years, so our confidence was at an all-time high going into the Lackawanna game,” Johnson said. “We were a little sore and beat up from that too, so we figured that we’ll go into the (Steelers) game to work on a few things and we managed to come away with a good victory.”

Alexis Lilly, Hope Balling, Chezney Belcher, Shelby Stone, Kayle Stuart, Kristin Carson and Grace Stranahan each scored for the Warriors. Alanna Herne made two saves to record the shutout.
