Michael Moore scored four goals to move within two of Glenwood’s career goal record as the Rams routed Creston 10-0 in Hawkeye 10 Conference girls soccer on Thursday.
Moore’s 32 goals this season ties the school record held by Laura Leber in 2007. Leber is also the Rams’ all-time leader with 101 career goals. Moore has three regular-season games and the post-season remaining to break the record.
Against the Panthers, five different Rams scored at least one goal in a dominant victory on both sides of the field. Glenwood out-shot Creston 24-2 on goal.
Gretchen Dehn, Makenzie Evans, Ana Frazee, Sydney Gutschenritter and Jordyn Hanshaw all scored goals. Emily
Wickham had three assists.
The Iowa High School Girls Athletic Union released its Class 2A post-season soccer brackets last week, placing Glenwood in the Region 4 bracket.
The Rams will open the playoffs at home against the winner of Winterset and Norwalk Tuesday, May 29 at 5 p.m. If Glenwood should win they will play the winner of either Indianola or the winner of the PCM-Nodaway Valley first round match on June 4, also in Glenwood.
To complete the regular season, the No. 4 ranked Rams (11-1 overall, 4-0 in the conference) have two Hawkeye 10 games remaining against Atlantic (2-7) and Kuemper Catholic (8-4) and a non-conference clash with Tri-Center (7-3).
C.B. Lewis Central 1
Council Bluffs Lewis Central got on the scoreboard first but Glenwood got the next four goals in a 4-1 victory to lock up control of the Hawkeye 10 Conference standings.
In the 13th minute, Lewis Central’s Brooke Jensen booted a perfect corner kick from Brandi Johnson in to the back of the net for the game’s first goal.
But 23 seconds later the Rams responded when Sydney Gutschenritter attacked the net and slipped in a goal past the Titan keeper to knot the score.
Eight minutes later, Emily Wickham put the Rams up 2-1, firmly in control of the Hawkeye 10 battle.
Michaela Moore added two second-half insurance goals.
