The Spartans claimed a 5-1 section quarterfinal victory over St. Croix Lutheran. Senior Natalie Leeder scored the first goal of the game striking a shot from 40 yards out catching the St. Croix Lutheran goalkeeper off of her line. Sophomore Zoe Boughton led a quick Spartan counterattack off of a corner kick and found senior Cally Cunningham who notched the second goal of the game. Cunningham found the back of the net with five minutes remaining in the first half on a pass from Leeder. Three minutes into the second half, senior Lexi Reichenbach dribbled her way past the St. Croix Lutheran defense to score the 4th goal of the game. Less than a minute later, Leeder sent in a corner kick from the left side and found senior Megan O’Connor who headed the ball past the goalkeeper.
