5A girls soccer: Newsome sophomore leads way in shutout

LITHIA — Liz Haumschild had the most productive game of her high school career in Thursday's Class 5A region quarterfinal. The sophomore forward had a five-point game, leading Newsome to a decisive 7-0 win over Ocala Forest.

Haumschild had three assists to go along with a spectacular header that extended host Newsome's lead to 3-0. That play, set up by a Shea Rhoney corner kick, started a second-half onslaught of five goals.

"Everyone was going up for (the ball that hooked toward the net from the left corner) and I just had good position on it," said Haumschild, who headed the ball down inside the near post. "You don't want to hit it right at the goalie."

Karina Gutsche scored the first of her two goals in the first half and Maria Cate had a goal as the Wolves took a 2-0 halftime lead. Haumschild had both assists, the first sending a nice through ball to Gutsche, who scored from in close and the second on a goal-mouth scramble that led to Cate's goal.

Gutsche added her team-leading 17th goal, a 25-footer that banked in off the crossbar, in the second half. Taylor Decaire scored twice and Jackie Simpson once in that frame.

Decaire lifted her first goal high into the net from the small box and her second off a nice through ball from Gutsche, a Florida commit.

"We have balanced scoring all over," Newsome coach Kelly Townsend said.
