Mustangs continue to dominate TC

Published Dec. 2, 2006

Mitchell faced Tampa Catholic Friday without its scoring leader but did not lack for firepower.

Three players got their first goals and another her second in a 6-0 win.

That was more than enough to compensate for the absence of Marisa Russo, who took her 18 goals to Raleigh, N.C., for a weekend tournament with her club team.

"I like to have everybody getting the chance to score a goal," Mitchell coach Karl Kukec said.

"We have a lot of talent on this team."

Jenna Coleman scored her first and second goals of the season, both coming on passes from her sister, Megan, who assisted on Jennifer Hendriksen's first goal.

"I'm really happy that it was my sister," Jenna said of Megan's passes that set up goals. "It makes it a lot better."

Mitchell (9-3-1) snapped a two-game losing streak and improved to 3-0 against Tampa Catholic (3-2-2).

The Mustangs have outscored the Crusaders 13-1 with two shutouts.

Shelby Wright's 11th goal, off a centering pass from Brittany Weissler, gave the Mustangs a 1-0 lead in the second minute.

Jessica Jagielski and Nicole Kirkpatrick also scored, and goalkeeper Laura Seletos earned her seventh shutout.
