Perhaps frustrated for a conference tournament that never happened, Lakeview girls soccer took out those frustrations in a 7-0 win over Crete on Tuesday evening at Wildnerness Park.
Senior Gracie Borer, who's closing in on school record totals for goals in a season and a career, added four to her season stats, scored her first before the match was a minute old and the Lady Vikes rolled to a fifth straight win and a 7-2 record.
Lakeview was set up to be the No. 1 seed at last week's Central Conference Tournament. Cold temperatures and expected snowfall canceled the event. With few regular season dates left open to make it up, the tournament was scrapped - something that a disappointed a hopeful Lady Vikes squad.
That hope turned into focused determination on Tuesday. Borer scored 25 seconds into the match and added another in the 13th minute before Emily Van Cleave and Reese Janssen both scored for a 4-0 lead.
Borer added two more - one in the final minute before halftime and another eight minutes after the break.
"I told them we wanted to get on them right away and get some players in who don't get a lot of playing time. I think we got the whole team in," coach Mike Zimmerman said. "We were crossing the ball really well. I was kind of disappointed in our passing, kind of played to the competition, but our crosses were really good."
