The Caledonia/Houston/Spring Grove girls soccer team finished the week by going 2-1 with wins over St. Charles and Dover-Eyota before losing to La Crescent 10-1 Saturday in a non-conference tilt.

The Warriors opened up play Sept. 10 beating St. Charles 5-0 at St. Charles and then pulled out a 2-1 overtime win over Dover-Eyota at home Thursday night. Trece Frank, Ali Beardmore and Hannah Felten all scored first-half goals when the Warriors handed the Saints their fifth loss of the season. Frank added another goal at the 45 minute mark of the second half, and Elizabeth Stoltz scored the final goal in the 5-0 shutout win. Caledonia goalie Lauren Perry made five saves in the game.

On Thursday the Warriors won their third straight game when they edged D-E 2-1 in overtime.

But on Saturday the Warriors ran into a red-hot La Crescent Lancer team that handed the Warriors a 10-2 loss at CHS. The win gave the Lancers a 7-1 record. The team has outscored their opponents 36-7 so far this season. The Lancers scored just one minute into the game and led 6-0 before a goal by Beardmore at the 15 minute mark cut the La Crescent lead to 6-1. But the Lancers scored three more goals in the first half and took a 9-1 lead into the break.

Trece Frank scored in the 74th minute, but La Crescent answered with another goal by Emily Yeiter with two minutes to go for the 10-2 final.

Lauren Perry made three saves, and Olivia Walker added two more for the Warriors, who will play Saturday in a four-team tournament in Eyota with teams from PIZM and New Ulm also taking part.
