Prep Soccer: Flivvers rampage through weekend | News, Sports, Jobs

ANTIGO, Wis. – The weather was perfect in Antigo on Saturday and so was the Kingsford girls varsity soccer team.

The Flivvers brought their scoring boots in their games against Phillips (Wis.) And the host Red Robins, exploding for a combined 17 goals in two matches while holding each opponent scoreless.

In their first match, Brooke Bittinger recorded a hat trick, Erika Malone added two goals and Maria Fornetti scored one along with three assists as the Flivvers routed Phillips

8-0. Kingsford put the game well out of reach early, scoring six times in the first half.

“Our team is playing well,” Kingsford coach Jon Lorenzoni said. “We were able to work on some things today, and I really liked how our forwards and mids are looking for each other.”

The Flivvers also received goals from freshmen Abby Przelakowski and Halle Jacobsen.

“Abby’s even included a celebration of a cartwheel / back handspring,” Lorenzoni said.

Libby Vross chalked up two assists to go with one each from Peyton Johnson, Malone and Bittinger in the win.

In the second match, Kingsford dominated play from the start again. The Flivvers rang up four goals in the first half and then added five more in the second to notch a 9-0 victory over Antigo.

The usual suspects led the march to victory. Fornetti burst free for four goals, Malone chipped in with three and Bittinger scored two.

For the day, all three players recorded five goals.

“Erika, Brooke, Maria, Mia (Counter), these girls can score goals with the best of them,” Lorenzoni said, “But what I really like is how they are looking to set their teammates up to score. Assists are very important to our team, and it shows. ”

Fornetti logged two assists in the match for six total points. Lexie Vross, Libby Vross, Malone and Bittinger also produced an assist each.

In addition to their offensive surge, the Flivvers were impenetrable on defense as well behind goalkeeper Alyssa Englund and defenders Lexie Vross, Sarah Scullon and Johnson.

“Neither team really got a decent look due to our defense, and when there was a ball to be handled, Alyssa Englund was up to the task,” Lorenzoni said. “We had fun. Lots of smiles and team camaraderie. ”

The competition amped up on Monday when the Flivvers traveled to Marquette to face the Redettes. The teams played to a 1-1 draw earlier in the season.
