“After disappointing play the day before, the girls rebounded with great desire and effort, scoring both goals in the 1st half of play,” coach Joel Lufkin said.
Nokomis opened the game with a flurry of shots, before Medomak settled into their offense and pounded the visitors’ net. Kasey Benner collected a defensive clear from 20 yards out and blasted a high shot to the upper left hand corner to give the Panthers the lead with 12 minutes remaining in the 1st half.
The Panthers went up 2-0 at the half, with just four seconds to go. Julie Ennamorati took the ball deep down the right side and dropped a pass back to Roxanne Jelenfy at the top of the box. Jelenfy cranked a high lofty shot to the upper left corner.
Nokomis picked up their offensive intensity midway through the 2nd half, but were unable to put a shot past Ericka Christensen, who made nine saves in the half, including a diving grab with 24 minutes to play.
Medomak held a 27-15 edge in shots. Christensen made 11 saves in net to earn her fourth shutout of the season.
Jordyn Mallet broke a 1st half stalemate with 6:08 to play. Mallet scored again with 15 minutes to play on a short hopper. Lynsay Vigue made it 3-0 with a goal with 6:18 to play.
Winslow held a 13-6 edge in shots. Ericka Christensen made 9 saves for the Panthers and Jessica Gordon four for the Raiders. Medomak’s record is 9-2.
