Trinity jumps to early lead in 6-2 victory 

Sarah Lemming scored a goal early in the match and that sparked the Trinity Lutheran girls to a 6-2 win over Charlestown at home Tuesday night.

The Cougars built their lead to 5-0 before the Pirates scored a goal late in the first half.

Kailene Cockerham had four shots and scored the eighth hat trick of her career and also had an assist. Emma Myers had three shots and two goals.

The start of the second half was interrupted by a 30-minute lightning delay, but once the second half started, the Cougars never relinquished control of the game with each team scoring a goal.

Cougars coach Thom Hayes said Lemming was a workhorse for the Cougars as she attempted 10 shots and scored one goal and had two assists.

“She was running breakaways and setting up her teammates. I was happy with our effort tonight. Charlestown had some skilled players, but because we were playing well, I was able to make some substitutions I wouldn’t normally make to get some experience,”  he said.

Samantha Enzinger had nine keeper saves, and Emalee Goss had two. Trinity had 23 shots, and Charlestown had 11 shots.

Trinity will play at Bedford North Lawrence on Thursday.
