WEST POINT – Holy Trinity’s Claire Pothitakis continues to rack up goals in the fresh high school soccer season.

The sophomore has back-to-back three-goal performances for six on the season for the 2-0 Crusaders, including a 9-1 drubbing of Keokuk at South Park Monday night.

Pothitakis converted all three of her shots. The Crusaders were 9 of 9 on shots on goal in the match. Senior Taylor Boeding had two goals to go with one each from Katie Scoville, Elle Rashid, Elyse Pothitakis and Mya Lawlor all had a goal.

Elyse Pothitakis and Rashid each had assists in the game.

Junior Ashlynn Haas guarded the net all night for HTC allowing just the one goal on a penalty kick and had one save as the HTC defense and midfield play kept the ball on Holy Trinity’s side of the pitch for most of the game.
