Kuemper Catholic sophomore Meredith Friedrichsen (29) tries to dodge the steal attempt of Logan-Magnolia’s Mariah Nolting (11) during the second half of a game played April 30 in Carroll. Friedrichsen scored the game-ending goal in a 10-0 win.

It all started with a quick game on Friday night.

Four minutes into a game against Logan-Magnolia, the Knights were able to score their first goal of a busy weekend.

After 13 more goals, and three wins later, the Knights were able to catch their breath, having conquered their busy weekend.

Friday night the Knights had an abbreviated game against Logan-Magnolia. The only reason why the game was shortened was because the Knights couldn’t stop scoring.

Kiley Trecker started the goal scoring party on Friday night when she was able to speed past the Logan-Magnolia defense and then fake out the goal keeper for an easy opposite side shot.

The second goal came quickly as just over a minute later Kenya Prescott launched a ball out from 21 yards that landed in the back of the net.

Then Catherine Mayhall went to work. The next four Kuemper goals all belonged to Mayhall as she helped the Knights take a 6-0 lead with 17 minutes left in the first half.

Kora Thomsen scored back-to-back goals late in the first half. Then Trecker was able to score her second goal of the evening to allow the Knights to lead 9-0 after one half of play.

Just 13 minutes into the second half, Meredith Friedrichsen scored a goal off a breakaway to allow the Knights to gain a 10-0 win.

Saturday the Knights played in Boone at the Boone Soccer Invite, where they went 2-0 on the day.

In their first match, the Knights took down Webster City 2-0.

Kuemper tallied a goal from Kenya Prescott and Mayhall in the victory. The defense kept the Knights’ offense flowing as Webster City only had five shots on goal.

In the second game of the Boone tournament, Kuemper would have to win in penalty kicks over Collins-Maxwell.

Mayhall netted the early goal, but a second-half shot by Collins-Maxwell tied the game.

Neither team would score the golden goal in either of the two extra period times.

The game would be decided by penalty kicks, where the Knights were finally able to gain the go-ahead goal.

The Knights are 7-5 on the season.
