Craig wins soccer invitational
The Cougars went 2-0-1 in the two-day event. Elkhorn defeated Tomah, 3-1, in Saturday’s final round to help the Cougars claim first place.
“Maddie Schroeder, as usual, did an excellent job in goal,” Craig coach Bill McCabe said.
Schroeder made 11 saves in Craig’s 0-0 tie with Tomah and 3-0 victory over Green Bay East.
Forwards Kate Heaps, Monica Speth and Jessica Martin scored unassisted goals in the win over Green Bay East.
McCabe said Kristi Crandall also played well on the front line, while Savannah Goicoechea and Kayleah Wright controlled the center of the field during the three-game tournament.
“Our backline of Jessica Ryder, Michaela Holzhuter, Ina Prucinskis and Randi Sheetz also did an excellent job,” McCabe said.
After playing five games this week, the Cougars are off until they play Beloit Memorial in a Big Eight match on Thursday.

Parker loses twice
Janesville Parker lost to Monroe and Reedsburg in the Monroe Invitational on Saturday, but there were bright spots.
The Vikings scored against Reedsburg. Paige Smith scored off an assist from Jasmine Bianes to get Parker within 3-1 in the 4-1 loss.
“We had double-digit shots on goal,” said Parker coach Amy Wargowsky. “I was happy about that.
“We are starting to play together,” Wargowsky said. “We had some kids missing and have some injuries, so we’re kind of short-handed. But the girls got a taste of having a goal, and I hope that carries over.”
Parker keeper Brianna Washington made 23 saves in the two games.
The Vikings host Madison East on Thursday in Big Eight Conference action.
