Jill Symens recorded a glut and the Webster City girls soccer team rolled past Hampton-Dumont/CAL here Thursday night, 8-0.

Symens had five goals to lead the Lynx, who improved to 2-1 on the season.

Janey Putney, Jayme Perez and Sandra Fuentes-Cruz also found the back of the net for Webster City.

Addy Beaulieu, Putney, Perez, Lovie Pruismann, Symens and Amanda Lahr each had an assist. Joleah Stuhr saved both of the shot attempts directed towards her.

“Overall, I was pleased with the team’s performance,” WCHS head coach Kristine Mason said. “We were on the attack early and didn’t let up pressure for the full 80 minutes. Every player got to see minutes and we were able to try out some of the players in different positions.

“The combination of Jill, Janey and Jayme up top has been exciting to watch and we’re looking forward to more creative combinations as the season progresses.”

Webster City has won each of the last six meetings between the North Central Conference rivals, including back-to-back shutouts.

“Our back four of Lovie, Amanda, Kendyl (Daniels) and Caitlyn (Gapp) continue to be a strong dependable unit and make it difficult on all offenses we’ve faced so far,” Mason said. “Ashlee (Nydegger) is an absolute rock in the middle for us. She wins most of her 50/50s and distributes the ball well. She has both defensive and offensive capabilities that work well for us in a variety of formations.”

The Lynx return to the pitch on Monday when they host Wright County Soccer.
