CLINTON, Wis. - It's readily apparent that the Clinton girls soccer team has made significant strides this season.

They showed Monday evening that there is still work to be done in order to compete with teams vying for a top spot in the Rock Valley Conference.

The Cougars were defeated by East Troy 9-1, as the Trojans kept constant pressure on Clinton goalie Anna Horozewski.

Clinton did keep it close for a whole. After allowing a goal in the first three minutes, the Cougars tied the score on a Madison Bryant goal in the 15th minute.

The game stayed tied until the 36th minute, when Gracie Moker scored the first of two goals to put East Troy up for good.

That seemed to open the floodgates for the Trojans, who scored three more times in the next 15 minutes to take a 5-1 lead at halftime. Four more Trojan goals in the second half rounded out the scoring.

The Cougars (3-2) will host McFarland Thursday evening.

The Indians scored three times in the second inning to take command. After the Vikings bounced back with a run in the third, Hononegah scored three times in the fourth and twice more in the fifth to put the game away.

Gabe Roessler went 3-for-3, while Jalen Goodwine went 2-for-2 with a pair of walks.

Stark struck out 15 and walked just one in game one, while going 2-for-3 at the plate as the Vikings banged out 15 hits.

In game two, Parkview had 15 more hits, including a home run by Hunter Baars, while Stark struck out six and walked one.

• GALENA 14, SOUTH BELOIT 4: The SoBos were out-hit 12-8 as Galena scored 13 runs in the fourth inning to win the game, which was shortened to five innings.
