WEST POINT – Each of Holy Trinity Catholic High School’s three seniors put up a goal Monday night as the lady Crusaders cruised past Wapello 10-0 on Senior Night at South Park.
The match was teased with rain through most of the first half after play was started 15 minutes late due to lightning in the area. But the HTC offense was the only storm in the area as they scored quick and often. Freshman Claire Pothitakis scored twice in the first five minutes and pitched junior Taylor Boeding an assist in between the two goals as HTC raced out to a 3-0 lead at 35:33.
With just over 29 minutes left in the first half, Pothitakis took a pass down the left side the field and sailed it over to Boeding again who scored on a running header into the right side of the net and the rout was on.
Senior Madison Mohrfeld got her score into the top right side of the net at the 24:32 mark and then senior Kayleigh Biegler scored just :40 later with a low kick that skidded under Wapello’s keeper. Senior Maya Rashid got her goal with a sharp kick from about 13 feet out in the box on the right side of the field.
On the night, Pothitakis, Boeding, and Elle Rashid each had two goals for Fort Madison, Elyse Pothitakis scored once as did Mohrfeld, Rashid and Biegler. Sophomore Sam Pothitakis pitched the shut out tending for the Crusaders.
“It was a nice solid performance by all members of the team tonight,” head coach Michael Sheerin said. “Maya Rashid is getting back to match fitness after her injury and should be 90-100% by post season play.”
The Crusaders fall to 6-8 on the season and play Fort Madison in a cross-town tussle on Friday at the Baxter Sports Complex in Fort Madison.
